"As you get older it is harder to have heroes, but it is sort of necessary." ~ Ernest Hemingway

We all need someone to look up to, even as we get older. The people we view as heroes shape us, and make us people others can look up to.

My mom is my hero for many reasons. She got her GED when I was 3, she went back to school to get her RN when I was in Jr. High, she opened not one, but TWO businesses that help people in her community. She makes me want to be a better person.
I've been told (by people that know my mom) that I am just like her, in my need to help others, which is the biggest compliment I can receive.

I volunteer with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Colorado, and I hope that I am someone that my little sister can look up to. I hope that when she becomes an adult, she will look back and remember the things we did together, and pay it forward.

Be blessed my Spark Family
