Who are your heroes, and why?

    One of my heroes...er....heroines....  is an ex client of mine.  Besides that she had a heart of gold, she raised three kids by herself, she first taught herself how to use a computer, then taught herself become a successful internet marketer (which was followed up by learning how to do other businesses online).  Eventually, she raised herself up from being on welfare to having a very satisfying income. She is positive minded, exceptionally smart, and a wonderful person all around. 

    she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and took it upon herself to campaign for the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, through several ingenious ways.  She raised over $13,000.  I think her light should be shared, so have a look:

    My other two heroines are my mother and my sister, for reasons that are more personal.  I hope each and every one of you has a hero/heroine to look up to.  Or....maybe you are someone's hero. smile

    My parents because they raised me to be who I am today.
    My friends for always sticking up for me and for always supporting me and being by my side through thick and thin.
    Teachers because they have inspired me to become one.
    The Military and their families because of their sacrifces they have made for my freedom and so that I can life my life the way I want to live it.
    And Authors for inspiring me to want to write and for kicking my imagination into full gear so I can write.

    My heroes...

      Paul Newman - More than just giving money, he helped many
                    with jobs and a hand up.

      My husband, Reid - No matter what cancer or treatments have
                taken from me, he only sees my heart.

      I also have been blessed with many inspiring souls in my life who have influenced me greatly smile Holly
