Well it was a toss up as to whose post really hit me in the gut this week. But by a slight advantage (she posted first) I have to go with Sherry from Two Sticks or a Lighter and her post about Taking a Stand. In her post she mentioned about going to a wedding and enjoying that moment when the doors open and the bride is standing there: "How many times will we have everyone in a room STAND to recognize and honor our presence? ... When we feel like a star." She posted some awesome pictures from her honeymoon and I hope to do the same. My pictures need to be scanned first because most were pre-digital! I want to remember how it was to be a star.
But I will give honourable mention to Amanda and her Don't Worry-"every little thing is gonna be alright!". Having lived so long :-), I can honestly say that everything does work out, maybe not how we always want but we get through the bad times and enjoy the good times. They will happen. Some we can avoid, others we can't. But we can change how we react to them.
These posts (and lots of others) inspired me to write my post "It's a Journey...Not a Race". But I can only link one post to the Lollipop Award for most Inspiring post, so click on Shirley to the right and read Sherry's post. Please feel free to post your own inspirations (and use the Shirley picture if you like).
