Jumpstart Week Day 4

This week I'm going to be blogging along with the SITS gals.

They posted a neat idea last Friday, and you can read about it here.  They are also going to be giving someone a really rad washer/dryer combo thingy, so maybe you want to blog along too.  (just read all the rules)

Anyhow, so here is today's bloggy idea:    
Thursday, September 16
Write a new post about a woman who inspires you. 

  I am greatly inspired by women who overcome, and live to tell about it.  I am greatly inspired by someone that most of you bloggers have read (or heard) about.  Her story touches my heart everytime, and though we have a different set of beliefs, I think she is an incredible woman.

  Her name is Stephanie Nielson.  You can watch a short video about her story here .  Although she and I have actually nothing in common (now that I think about it), her attitude about the loss she has suffered has greatly impacted me.  I long to be more than my loss, and everyday I hope I am closer to that goal.  I want to remember my boys, and tell the world about them...and shout their names from the mountain top, but I also want to be better because of mothering them.  I want the deaths of my children to have a profound impact on the world, because it has had a profound impact on me.  But, what I have learned from Stephanie is that I have to be an overcomer, and rise up...and then I can make the difference that I want to see.  

visit her blog & be inspired too!

So sorry for your loss. I can't begin to imagine the pain you have gone through.
