Last night my daughter had the opportunity to meet Alicia Sacramone, the 2008 Olympic Silver Medalist in Gymnastics. Here is a photo of them together. Meg had one of her leotards signed and she was so excited! I'm going to frame it with this picture as a keepsake and a source of inspiration for her. This is proof that you CAN be whatever you want. You CAN succeed with a lot of hard work and effort. You CAN make your dreams come true, if you set your mind to it.
On that note, I am feeling inspired! There are a lot of things going on here as of late. My car is in the shop and going to cost me a small fortune, I have some friends who are having some troubles at home, I am stressed beyond belief at the prospect of Christmas being about 9 weeks away and yet... I'm inspired.
The only way to get through the bad stuff is to look for the silver lining. You know there is ALWAYS a silver lining... I am looking, and I think I can see a glimmer...
I'm going to try to sit down tonight and make something that I've wanted to get made for a while. After Meghan's school conference, I'm locking myself in my office and not coming out until I have some of it done. Stay tuned for some photo's to come! This is a big undertaking, and I'm ready for the challenge! Wish me luck!
