This week’s topic, which I am late to getting to is who inspired you. I’d initially thought this was a toughie. But then I got to thinking about it. It’s not that hard after all.

My dear friend, I’ll call her E since she’s not online and isn’t going to see this, is the type of person who is always on the go. Always moving, always doing, always helping. Then she fell. The fall wasn’t so bad, but she developed a blood clot. The clot moved around, as they do, and she started having other problems. She’ll need to a couple other surgeries, but one involves having her heart fixed. Now all while she’s dealt with this, she’s been so upbeat.

Then came the day she wasn’t herself. She’d come to a group meeting we had and just wasn’t herself. She’s normally on the ball and sharp but this time she wasn’t. Turned out, she was in the early stages of having a stroke.

Now on to why she’s inspired me. She’s inspired me because she sure did have that stroke and it sidelined her. She can’t go, go, go the way she used to. But she hasn’t given up, either. She’s gotten right on therapy and is home. She’s walking, talking and doing many things like normal, but she gets tired easily. She sometimes gets distracted, too. But she’s kept going. She may never get back to go, go, go, but she’ll darn well try.

That’s why she inspired me to never give up, no matter the odds.

What about you? Who inspired you? I’d love to know.

  1. Very inspiring. I’ve had blood clots myself and know how dangerous they can be, so your friend is amazing.
