This one is simple for me because my answer is always the same. When I was 17, I met my Sunday School teacher. Gracious, kind, and patient, she taught that class with so much spirit that I couldn't help but hang on to her every word.
A politician, a teacher, a mother, a wife, a Christian, and a phenomenal woman, she taught me that I could be anything. She became a surrogate mother to me, and as I grew, we became friends. Over thirty years later, the friendship remains, and I see her at least four times a year if not more. We talk on the phone several times a week, sharing the good and the bad, encouraging one another and, most of all, laughing. I say most of all because if there's one thing she brings to my life, it's joy. That is inspiration to me.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
