At Time Out for Women, a question that was asked of the presenters was, "Who Is Your Hero? They all had interesting comments, some said family members, others people from history. That got me to thinking about who my heroes are (is). Sheila Doherty is a hero to me. She is an amazing woman. Fun, full of energy, so totally devoted to the Gosepel of Jesus Christ, GREAT mom and grandmother. Missionary. She, to me, has always been so totally insightful to so many things. It's like she's always where I want to be. She's about 10 or 12 years older than me, so maybe that's why. I consider her the big sister I never had.

Stephanie Waite is a woman I've never met. But, I've read her blog on a regular basis. She's heroic in how she's handling the drowning death of her baby girl, Camille. She wouldn't think she's heroic. But, her willingness to share her experience with the world is.

So, who are your heroes? I'd like to know.

Well, my dad has been my hero for as long as I can remember. BUT, my mom entered the race a while back and is gaining on him pretty heavily. So in the end I think it might be a tie - because they never do anything with out the other. I know, it might be a cliche answer, but it's my truth.

My dad for his generosity, his humility, his failures and successes, and how he just exudes love. My dad is the father that he never had. And the husband that every woman deserves.

My mom for her sassy spirit, her courage, her faith, her laughter, her super-human strength and her ability to make a friend anywhere she goes. She is the mother that every child deserves to have. And the wife every husband wishes they had.

They are both everything I ever hope to be. And I am extremely blessed to have them in my life.
