9jaflave Soliloquy - Name One Woman Who Inspires You Outside Your Biological Mother

Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely mothers out there. You are worth celebrating indeed!!!!
I believe outside your own biological mother, there must be one woman somewhere who remains priceless in your heart, who inspires and motivates you and who is an unforgettable part of your success story and life's journey.

Your paths may have crossed physically, spiritually, through books or even social media. Let's celebrate that special woman with you here on the blog. Share your story about this inspirational woman and why she inspires you.

The stories of many mothers inspire me, but today I would like to stick with Sonya Carson, mother of world renowned neurosurgeon, Ben Carson. This is why she inspires me.....She had a third grade education, was divorced and a single mother of 2 boys whom she raised in desperate poverty. Her son Ben, had been labelled the class dummy for his very poor performance in school. She prayed for wisdom on how to raise and guide her sons towards the path of success and direction to show them the importance and value of education.

Mrs Carson went on to cut off the time her sons spent watching TV, instructed that they read 2 books a week, and submit a written report about the books to her. This decision opened up Ben's mind to knowledge on a variety of subjects through books and he eventually rose from the bottom of his class to the top. Today Dr Benjamin Carson is a world renowned neurosurgeon who has performed life changing surgeries to give children a new lease of life. He is an author and also a well sought after speaker.

He has often times spoken about the influence of his mother on his life. In his words: " I not only saw and felt the difference my mother made in my life, I am still living out that difference as a man." What if Mrs Sonya Carson simply ignored her sons and chose not to go the extra mile in raising her children and seeking a great future for them, the world would have missed their well of knowledge and gifts and their positive influence in the lives of many around the world.
Thumbs Up to Mrs Sonya Carson for being a great and inspirational mother.
