Todays's Back to Blogging event is actually some new stuff!!  "Write a new post about a woman who inspires you."


I sat looking at my computer for a minute and really thought to myself OMG who am I going to write about!  I could definitely write about my mother, my Aunt, my Grandmother...they are all inspirational in their own ways and have had a huge impact on me and the way I lead my life.  Then I thought, well maybe the SITS Girls were looking for someone more main stream.  My mind immediately went to the fabulous Miss Ellen DeGeneres, because she has an infectious way about her.  But let's face it I have never even met the woman... or even corresponded with her.


Gasp I thought, am I even inspired right now.  What does inspirational even mean...So what does a girl looking for an answer do, yup thats right she hops onto the internet and googles the definition of inspirational.  This is what Google provided..."arousal of the mind to special unusual activity or creativity."  This is definitely not the dictionaries definition but it sparked something in my mind for this post and thats what I was looking for after all.


All of my bloggy friends are inspirational to me.  I can not only learn new things for practical uses (like from my new follower Hannah who showed her first post about her boys birthday party - totally stealing SO many of her ideas), but about myself and the way I am raising my children (Like when chatting back and forth about my day with Kate from Mommy Monologues).  I can make new friends (like Jenn over at West Sac Honey), but keep the old (Like my sorority sister Gretchen over at Our Journey).  I am inspired to be just as crafty, just as good of a writer, just as loving of a mother, just as good of a friend, Just as kind of a daughter, and just as giving of a sister as each and every woman whose blog I stop by every day.


So thank you to everyone who continues to write meaningful post everyday for ladies like myself who are still trying to find themselves in a sea of unknowns!
