Midweek Inspiration – Family

I am inspired by my family! They are such a help to me, and I’m grateful that I have DSCN7567them.

This is a picture of me, my mom and my sister. My mom recently moved to our small town. She has been such a help to me. She puts labels on envelopes, buys stamps, and carries packages to the post office. She saves me HOURS every week. But more than that, I know I can call and talk to her anytime. And that is a BIG help.

My sister is a reader, like I am. She has been so encouraging to me since I’ve begun writing. She’s also offered to help at quilt shows and book signings.

Is there someone you’re especially inspired by? Someone you’re grateful God has placed in your life?
