We have six kids. Some are readers and some are not. Amy, our 13 year old definitely falls in the reader category. She loves to read-a lot. For her last birthday, John, bid and won a box of over 60 Louis L’Amour books on Ebay. She was ecstatic! She has read almost all of them. This can be a great thing, but sometimes she is too enthralled by tumble weed surroundings to notice that her room is still a mess and violin needs to be practiced.
Today, John took her book hostage until she finished what needed to be done.
I wish I could write like that. I admire those who have perfected any craft to the point of moving someone else to such a strong reaction.
2011 is only a few days away and I have been thinking about what goals I would like to have in the New Year. After mulling over several things I decided my mantra will be “Aspire to Inspire”.
Like Loius L’Amour, who inspires a young girl to worry about a stranded stranger in the middle of a high dessert, I want to be someone to makes a difference on this planet we call home. Whether it is in a big way or several little tasks done well I want to aspire to inspire.
What New Year’s goals do you have?
