Who's Your One?

My mom is my one. She inspires me. She always goes above and beyond in caring for me and my sisters. I know it's "in the job description", but my mom really cares. She inspires me because she is always thinking of others, from my family to peoples she's never met. My mom got my sisters and I into volunteer work, she teaches us about her faith and beliefs, but also lets us create our own beliefs and ideas, and she never judges anyone before she gets to know them well, and even then she tries to find the good in them. We often argue because we are both kind of opinionated. In this picture she is volunteering at the South Carolina Aquarium Turtle Hospital. I love my mom so much and she really has made me who I am today.
