Someone who has influenced me is …… my husband.  I think his influence in the early years of our marriage was in his leadership, his courage, and being more ready for change than I was.  I was the follower.  Perhaps thinking I was supposed to be the follower.  Something about submission – since I was being taught this by books on marriage from the Christian sphere.  Submission to a courageous leader is easier when you’re scared of making change anyways.

Now we influence each other.  It feels more equal to me, but I think I’m the one who changed more.  I enjoy the balance.

Now my daughters have grown to have a great influence on me.  It is so amazing to hear their thoughts on so many issues, causing me to pause, to think, to reconsider, to learn.
