One Inspiring Woman (Bird)

Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. ~Victor Hugo

This bird is my sister Carrie.  Her strength and faith are truly inspiring to me and I am so thankful that to call her my sister.  It's impossible to sum her up in words, all the things in life she has overcome and conquered and continues to every day.  This is a meager attempt, as I write about her, to pay homage to a woman who sums up grace, strength and sacrifice.

She is a true servant of the Lord and has proven that in this life many times.  Her selfless and trancendant ways are not just words in her repertoire; they are actions that touch the lives.  Her sweet and gentle nature comfort those in need and provide smiles and this is why it comes back to her.  Her constant quest for truths makes her pliable and adaptable in any situation or place - she can relate to all.  She exudes compassion and understanding and this is only a fraction of why she makes the perfect nurse.  She has empathy that some people couldn't achieve in many lifetimes of experience.  She is an angel and is as close to leading by example as I have ever encountered.

And this is why God continues to bless her.  She is moved by the Spirit and lives her life the way we are intended to.  She has given birth to two amazinly strong and beautiful girls and it's really no wonder that they are such a rarity in the realm of science.  The have no idea how inspired they will be by this mother who has so much to instill in them.  She has so much love to give to strangers, imagine the love she will have for her own.  She already grasps unconditional love so she is far ahead of this game of life. 

She flies above the daily travails of life with faith unshaken.  She even comforts others in her own times of need.  She sees things very clearly and she knows that God will provide and take care of her and her family.  She is a rock and she is my inspiration.  May God continue to bless her and her family daily.  Thank you Carrie for showing us and not just telling us the true ways to live life.
