Monday's Muse - Who inspires me?

Over at Maternal Spark she asked us creative moms to write about who inspires us. Wow, this is gonna be a little difficult for me today 'cause I am feeling a little down BUT I am sure as I write the sparks (and muse!) will begin to flow.

I am actually inspired by many people. First, my four children who are often amazing and beautiful when they're not being naughty. Without knowing it they remind me of why I shouldn't give up. Secondly, one of my best friends. There are a few close friends I have in my life, but there is one who is always there IMing me, texting me and talking to me to encourage me. Sometimes he just sits "nearby" (on the phone or IM since he's a 12-hour drive away) or talks me through a project or writing until inspiration hits. Lastly, I am inspired by individuals I don't personally know. Like Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry and Robin McGraw.

It is my hope that I can reach pure happiness like that of a child, that I can have pure optimism like my BFF Frankie gives me or that I can have pure financial and personal success like the celebrities I mentioned above. Now that, my friends, is inspiration.
