That's lots of positive role models who I admire in the celeb world, in the real world I'd have to say my dad who sadly passed away nearly 10 years ago. He was the kindest man you'd ever meet and so strong both physically and mentally, even when he was ill with cancer he never gave up and I try to be just like him and hope I've made him proud. ❤️

    Hi @Tammyjane33 :)

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into the Coffee Lounge to get the conversation going.

    I'm sorry to hear that your Dad passed away, but those are really lovely words. He sounds like a great man. I'm sure you have made him very proud!

    @Tammyjane33 Your dad sounds like a true dad, I'm so glad you got to have him in your life  <3

    My inspiration would be my lovely mum.  She has had a heck of a lot thrown at her in her life-time and she never fails to be there for others.  You know, someone who just instantly puts you at ease and has a caring aura.  I aspire to be like her and make others smile if I can.

    My son is my inspiration even though is is young , he has dealt with so many things in his life and is still positive and caring

    He dealt with the ambulance when I went into a coma, his dad left us when he was 10 and he doesnt really see him often he has dealt with me becoming disabled and is my only real help and assistance

    He is my reason for living and would have given up if it wasnt for him, but he was there and I had to be able to care for him. So turned my life around and we are both now happy and secure

    @Tori_Scope
    Thankyou so much for the kind words, they mean alot. I lost him 9 years ago, I hope he is proud.

    @Cher_Scope thankyou so much for your kind words too.
    Your mum sounds wonderful, you only have one mum/dad so I think its important to spend time with them whilst you can.

    @janer1967 what a lovely answer.
    Both you and your son are lucky to have each other, he sounds like a lovely young man.
    He is a credit to you. ❤️

    Thanks @Tammyjane33 he sure is special just hope he doesnt go astray in his teenage years. Its a worry thinking about what they get up to. But hopefully I have instilled some good influence in him
