Hero is defined as...a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal.
Jesus Christ...Died on the cross to save a wretch like me.
Soldiers...Anyone who fought or is fighting for my freedom, is a hero to me.
My Hubby...He is a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. (According to dictionary.com) At least that is what his heroism is to me.
My Cousin...She is a single mom, works full time and is fighting cancer, that sums up courage to me.
My Mama...She has gone through a tragedy and come out the other side better off because of it.
I really wanted to talk about these hero's because they make my life worth living well.
Jesus Christ laid down his life for me, not only that but he took a beating, was spit on, and suffered enormously so that I could partake in eternal life.
Many soldiers have fought and given their lives for the very freedom I enjoy today, some are still fighting. Thank you just does not seem enough, so I try to support them at every opportunity.
My hubby has been there for me every step of the way in our marriage, but little did he know that the "in sickness" part would come after we had 4 small children to care for. He has stuck with me through it all, he worked full time and took care of the house, cooking when he had to, and of course taking care of me.
My cousin, is an inspiration to me. She is a full time single mom, works full time, and is fighting cancer...full time. She is truly a hero in my book.
My mama went through a heart wrenching divorce after almost 30 years of marriage. She was lost and fading fast in the beginning. I was the one to go in and pick up all the shattered pieces of her life and help her begin to put it together again. Her and I never were real close when I was a teenager, but this changed everything. Suddenly we were forced almost to put our differences aside and move to a different place in the relationship, she is now one of my very best friends, and one of my hero's.
