As my personal blog begins to grow I am inspired by many people. This blog is about my mother who is a blogger as well. I may have gotten her going on this blogging thing, but her posts continue to inspire me. She is a storyteller, poet, painter, thinker, and all around inspiring human. She is 71 years old and in great health. She is a gardener, avid volunteer for her church and foster-care organizations. She is a traveler, a hiker, and a foodie. She taught art lessons at home, grows her own vegetables and has taught hundreds of high schoolers the value of literature and critical thinking. She is also pretty techie for a gal her age. We do not live in the same city or state for that matter, but we have a special bond. Her posts always touch my heart.
I love that she blogs because anytime I need to hear her voice or take a moment to pause and consider a different point of view I can read her posts. When she has a grace-filled moment with a grandchild, she blogs about it. When she has had a conflict, she blogs about it. Her posts are filled with inspirational quotes, life lessons, and humorous situations. When I am struggling to find an idea to write about, I think of her and my life. I think of small moments that someone else could relate to, or moments that might inspire someone. Everyone has something to share. What could you blog about? Who inspires you?
