You Inspire Me

Good morning Stampers!

This card means a lot to me as it was created for a very special lady in my life.  I have adopted her as my Mother, but technically she is an Aunt from my Daddy's marriage.

This beautiful person has fought cancer four different times, yet she continues to fight her battle as if it were the cold or the flu.  If I were to be given the news that I had cancer... well, let's just suffice to say that I would handle it no where near with the dignity, grace, and confidence this woman has demonstrated.  Every time I wallow and feel sorry for myself when I am hurting really bad, I make myself think of her.  She has had 4 different occasions to throw in the towel and accept defeat.  She hasn't, and I know she won't.  So how dare I boo hoo over pain.  I am left feeling ashamed and embarrassed, but more importantly, I am proud of her and so blessed that God put her in my life since I was a little girl.

She should be an inspiration to people everywhere, but she is a private person and only let's in those she is close to.  This is why I am telling her story for her.

  • Stamps:
