Through The Fire

I'm really bad at this every day blog thing. It has evened out to about once a week, but I am really going to try to plow through the rest of this picture challenge! Woo!

Day 16 – A picture of someone who inspires you.

Now, this isn't because she's one of the few people who I know will read this, but she's the person who over and over again comes to mind with this prompt. There are people who inspire me with their drive and talent, with things they accomplish, but I think it's safe to say that when someone has those things and has walked through the valley of the shadow of death, there is depth and wisdom and insight beyond an ordinary life.

Jessi, you inspire me! (Read about her family's story and of their little superman, Jack, who was born between 23 and 24 weeks.)

I dug back into my photos and found these photos. One of our freshman year of college and one from when Jessi was about to get married and I had the great privilege of being "most holy" maid of honor. ;) 

Jessi, you are a treasured friend and an amazing woman. Truly, an inspiration. Love you!


  1. Thank you, dear friend. You encourage me to keep on keeping on! Love you and of course, MISS YOU!!!

  2. And those pictures are awesome... such good memories. You were the best maid of honor (can't believe that was 7 years ago!)and the pic with Erin cracks me up :)

  3. I could have gone on and on about what specifically inspires me...I didn't go into detail, but the impact is profound. And yes, aren't the pictures awesome? I actually think the one I said was Freshman year is actually winter before you got married. And my face is fat because I had just gotten my wisdom teeth out, ha ha. 7 years--I can't believe it!!!
