Inspiring Women Who Changed Our World

There are many we personally know who have inspired us in ways we cannot begin to explain and somehow these are the women who may not be famous in the face of the earth but are simply famous in the depths of our hearts.

The list goes from mothers to aunts, school teachers and religious educators, personal coaches and at times even people who are younger to us, daughters, nieces, granddaughters or girls that we have no blood connection with but inspires us to exercise our existence as a GIFT.

With mother's day just around the corner, let us ponder on the women who have inspired change in our lives and lift up a thought of gratitude or prayer for their footprints imprinted alongside ours.

The women who have inspired me and changed my world are:
1. My MUM (don't tell me it's cliche okay not everybody says mum in their list)
2. My form 6 Discipline teacher (no I didn't have a disciplinary problem) who was my mentor through my involvement with ACS' PRS (Pembimbing Rakan Sebaya), Students Service Society (SSS) in Convent Klang and the Liturgical committee in OLL Klang - Mrs Teresa Lee.

So let's remember them and if they are still around, call them and say THANK YOU this Mother's Day! I'll be making a call to the 2nd person on my list and God bless the soul of my mum.
