Who Inspires You?

Monday, March 15, 2010

In "TainerJame's" Blog he asked who our inspiration is and who we inspire. These were my thoughts:

My biggest inspiration came from my Nana. She has been dead for over 20 years, but her guidance still leads me on. Ironically I have been thinking about her a lot lately. I'm not sure if I'm looking to her for strength or if i just see her body in mine. My Nana was a very heavy lady. She loved to bake and I loved to eat her goodies. When I look in the mirror I definitely see my Nana's arms and heaviness(I loved her flabby arms when I was growing up). I carry my weight everywhere and so did she. I would be honored to be as wonderful of a person as she was, but I do not want to remain the same shape.

Since joining SP I have been getting to know some of the wonderful people here that are a different type of inspiration for me. I thank all of you who reach out to us "newbies" and make us feel welcome.

As for who I inspire, I hope other members of SP when I've made some real progress. I also am hopeful that I inspire my children to be good people.

    I loved my cinnamon roll baking grandma too, and when I look in the mirror I see her face. It is kinda of reassuring.

    I loved reading about your Nana. I just lost my grandmother two weeks ago, so the topic is very fresh in my mind. How beautiful that you still feel her presence.

    I loved your blog. My grandmother was and still is a big part of me and my life even though she has been gone for four years.

    I have met SO MANY fellow members of our SparkFamily who have been TREMENDOUSLY inspirational!

    We all keep each other going, even when we can't! :-)
