Inspiration for the Future

Pin It
Inspiration comes from many places and things.  Lately, I've been a bit frazzled, a whole lotta impatiant, and a heaping mess of 'where is my life supposed to go?'  Sometimes I wonder if my dreams will ever come true, I have lots of them you know (smile) but my impatiance gets the best of me... then I look at my kids.

My inspiration, my hope comes from above in the faces of my children.  Especially Alexis, that child has a magical way of reaching the core of my soul.  As a mother, I would love to take all the credit for who my children are.  A main purpose of being a parent is to teach and guide your kids... they are who they are because of us right? ... but they teach us so much more.

BUT, what does this have to do with dreams for the future?

When I feel down, when I feel lost, when I feel dreamless... I look at this face.
Each day this little girl pulls herself out of bed and heads off to school in the big scary world, she faces great


She faces her fears with each new day.  She carries the burden of pain on a daily basis with merely a mention to it.  She is deep.  She is a Thinker.  My daughter has an incredible belief in mankind.  I wonder at times if I were in her shoes, would I be as kind as she manages to be everyday?  Her tears on a bad day rip my heart apart... as only she holds the key to a very deep locked cavern in my heart.  Her smiles, hugs, and laughter are purely heavenly.  Her fight is never ending.

I look at that face
and I am Inspired beyond my wildest dreams to be better than I was the day before.

Where does your inspiration to dream come from?
