Day 2 of the 11 question challenge and I fear that I’m already stumped. [smile] Read this question and tell me it doesn’t give you pause.
2. Who inspires me the most? Think about the one person you most want to emulate. Who is it? Now what is it about their story or character that draws you to them? …The person you want to be like the most tells you a lot about who you hope to become.
I mean really one person. Just one person who inspires me. I am overly blessed and like the gift of great friends, I am fortunate to have many people who inspire me. Rounding out the top of the list are my grandparents, parents, and in-laws. Each of these incredibly special people have taught me so much simply by being their authentic selves. From them I have learned that it is better to give than receive. I have seen them open their homes to the world. I have heard the stories of their perseverance to work to provide for their families and the stories of the stances they took against injustice. I could do little better than channel a bit of their work ethic, love for family, faith, and passion to help others.
