who inspires me?
who do i gaze at in wonderment?
who makes me strive to be a better person?
i honestly believe that i am surrounded by folk that inspire me daily on so many different levels, so it is hard to put in to words who and why this is..
however the biggest inspiration and shapers of my very heart and soul are my grandparents, olive and harry..
they were the constant in my restless childhood, the safety that i clung to, the two people who seemed to fill me to the very brim with love and a sense of who i was and who i could become..
i wonder so often what they would say to me now as i stand at this part of my life peeking in to the unknown, what words of encouragement they would give..
they are gone, but i still listen every day in the hope that i can hear them whisper wise words to me, feel the gentle nudge as they push me forward to face challenges...
i hope they are nearby...
