"You bring feeling my life. You're the inspiration"

Day 8: Name a few people that have inspired you the most.

#1 definitely has to be my Mom.  We have an excellent relationship and for that I am so grateful.  She is amazingly forgiving.  She has shown me what real grace and mercy is.  Even when I treat her like crap, which happens too often, she is still always willing to help me out and love me like nothing ever happened.  I love her and the strength that she has shown throughout my life even when I know it would have been easier for her to give up.  She is always willing to befriend anyone that needs it and she them the same love that God has given her.  Most importantly she has given me such a great foundation in Christ.  She taught me from the time I can remember that all you need is God and she not only tells me she shows it.  Thanks Mom.

#2 My Grandmaw  she is especially on my heart after spending the week with her and my family.  I love how my Grandmaw loves life.  It has only been in the last couople years that I have really started to think of my grandmother as a person and not just Grandmaw.  She has led a whole life before I was even born.  I so enjoy listening to her tell stories of the past and her favorite memories.  She has always been a live wire and even now with all the health problems that she is having she is still out there and living her life.  She still lives with joy.  She is so strong-willed.  She has such a giving heart and has never denied any of us something that we needed.  She is great.

#3 Is actually a 2fer.  Steve and Jen Collins my bosses at the summer camp that I work at and they have really helped me a lot.  They show and brand of leadership that it now always easy to find.  They seek God first in everything that they do and say.  They both are always learning and seeking for what God has for them next, both as leaders and as a couple.  I have learned so much about compassion and teaching from them both.  It is a honor to call them both boss and friends.

So theres a few ..... Happy New Year!
