My mom has touched so many peoples' lives by just being kind and listening to them and their stories. I had one woman come up to me last year and tell me she was her "angel" — how lucky am I to call her mine? I try to be more like her, although it's hard to come close! Another thing she often says that has influenced me greatly: "Always, always speak up for yourself." Thanks, mama!

My mom is very friendly and out going. She taught me that talking to strangers is a simple way to create a sense of community in almost situations, to learn surprising information, and to keep mundane situations interesting.

My mom has taught me to nurture my inner strength, accept my flaws, and love unconditionally. I never hold back, never give up, and am always myself because of her. Thanks to my mom, I know that I can be anything I want to be and do anything I want to do, because I am a woman.

My mom has shown me that the greatest strength stems from compassion. Be kind to everyone and not because you expect anything in return. Just because it's the right thing to do.

I’ve always appreciated that my mom is truly someone I can talk to and confide in. She rarely judges and genuinely cares about what is important to other people and what they have to say. Her attitude, outlook on life, and how she treats others inspires me every day.

It's hard to summarize what I've learned from my mom into a few sentences. Some of her most admirable qualities (the ones that I try to emulate as a woman) are: being open-minded, adventurous, courageous, kind, hard-working and generous.

My mom is an inspiration in many ways. She is the smartest and most tenacious woman I have ever known. She is also the most opinionated, and one of her opinions is about disliking the concept of Mother's Day. I live across the country from my mom, so I do nothing other than call her and while she's happy to hear from me, she still takes the opportunity to call it out for being a silly holiday. Oh, mom. :)

My mom is an amazingly balanced woman: independently strong, yet caring of her partner; hard working, but able to let go of things out of her control; ambitious, while being happy with what she already has. I strive for that.

My mom is the rock in my family. She has taught me my favorite quote which I try and live by: "Would you rather be right or would you rather be kind?".
