In honor of Lizzie Kate

Sunday, May 29, 2011

I was recently responding to another new member's first blog post when I had a revalation. The key to my success here is not just drinking my water, tracking what I eat and racking up spark points. Rather it is my participation in the community as a whole. Oh, I am committed to succeed this time, but I am discovering that my greatest satisfaction comes from encouraging others.

When I was growing up, my mother was a stay at home mom. No, that is not quite correct. She did not have a "job" like other working mothers but she was not a stay at home type of woman. She worked endlessly helping others, especially young people. She had a saying - "Lifting as we climb". In other words, as we strive to achieve our goals, we must not forget to help others along the way.

It's been a year since she has passed, but I shall never forget the lessons she has taught me and I hope that I continue to honor her by instilling these same lessons into my own children.

To a wonderful woman - Lizzie Kate from her loving daughter.

    Beautiful picture and words. My emoticon warms when someone remembers the person who raised, inspired or taught them. It could be a grandparent, foster, adopted or biological parent or extended family member.
