Inspiring


My friend Debra at Common Ground
hosts a wonderful weekly party,
Vintage Inspiration Friday....

I didn't think I'd be participating this week,
what with packing and moving, as well
as working 12 hour shifts today and tomorrow at ye olde coal mine.

But it hit me on the drive home tonight
just what inspires me the most these days...

all of YOU.

You lift me up

You make me laugh

You pray with me and for me

You challenge me

You truly do help me to be a better person.




That's all.

I just thought y'all should know that.

:-)

Hello Anne... oooh, I had a comment all ready to go, and it kicked me off... maybe someone is telling me to go do my dishes and quit looking at blogs... tee hee hee... YOU are inspiring sweet lady, but not vintage!... xoxo Julie Marie

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Anne you inspire me also!

Shelia said...

Aw...little Annie! Dear One, you are the inspiration and I'm so glad I walked into that Antique mall in Kerrville and the lady at the front gave me your card and told me you were a blogger! :) With all your hours of work and packing and unpacking - I hope you get some rest too.
You are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Anne, I think we all inspire each other. Don't you? I love all my blog friends. I get so much inspiration and wonderful ideas from reading blogs. The problem is, there are just not enough hours in the day to do all the things I read about. Have a great weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Anne,

Lovin' that "hand" dish, you've got some of the coolest stuff. Oh to be young enough, and mobile enough to work 12 hour days.......

Oddly enough, I envy your ability to still work like that. I haven't been that mobile since 1998, and disabled since 2003. Your ability to work is a blessing in disguise, however, please don't kill yourself by overdoing it. Never take your body for granted, and please be kinder to yourself.

Hugs and Happy Holiday thoughts to you,
Meri
