There are many people in my life that I admire. I may admire them wholely as a person or I may admire something about them. It can be something as shallow as me admiring their looks or their success, or something deeper and more intimate like their character. Now while there are many people I admire it is far more rare for me to find someone I genuinely look up to. This goes beyond admiration. This person is someone who helps me to be a better person just by showing me an example to follow. This is a person who possesses wisdom beyond mine and who openly shares it with me. This is a person who can say more with less. This is the type of person I look up to.
Today is my cousin Jess’ birthday. You might know her better as MlleRobillard. She is, in a word, a lady. A lady in the truest sense of the word. I look up to her because of her grace, strength, beauty, intelligence, and her heart. There aren’t very many people who make me feel more loved and cared for and I love her for that.
So if you haven’t already done so, stop by Jess’ site and wish her a happy birthday. I’m sure she’ll appreciate it.
P.S.- Jess do you think the post office would let me stuff some lambi in an envelope and send it your way?
