I am contemplating the various people who have come and gone through my life, leaving and taking little qualities that make me who I am. It starts with my Dad – whom I have written a lot about, but he still tops the list. He inspires me! He was an inconsequential short man who was one of the kindest men I have known. I never heard him say a bad thing about anybody. He had a high moral fiber that led him; he had an inner compass that kept him ultra loyal and steadfast with his friends, his family, his coworkers, and everyone who crossed his path.
I am inspired by my two sons who miraculously made it to adulthood with those same humble yet high qualities that my Dad had. I am amazed and in awe of their morals and principles.
I am inspired by friends. Kathy who lives with Parkinson’s and is the epitome of inspiration as she faces each day as a goal to meet with grace and humor. Jackie, who raised a daughter alone, who grew into a beautiful compassionate woman; Jackie who built her house almost single handedly from trees cut from her property.
Who inspires you?
