There are many things that inspire me! What a topic to begin with!  This past Christmas, I have to say the best gift I received was from my father.  It wasn't the usual gift of money inside the card, it was what my father wrote.

Written on the inside of the card it said, "Don't give up your dreams!" 

Even typing that, it still chokes me up! 

So what inspires me the most?  Well it is HOPE, ENCOURAGEMENT, FAITH and most of all LOVE!  That's what my father's words meant to me and still means to me.  I have that card on my kitchen table where I can see it everyday...to INSPIRE me and I am determined not to give up on my dreams.

Well, I think that's it for today! Blessings all and stay warm.
