    I don't think I have one either, besides trying to do my best.
    I often think of my parents, I guess they have been my greatest role models. I was very fortunate to have amazing parents.

    I am me, why should I try to model my existence on someone else?

    My Grandmother...she raised three generations and still takes care of my 68 year old handicapped Uncle.  This young lady is 94 years old and will still tell me to go get the switch. She is strong, compassionate and loves with no expectations.  I've always prayed to be 1/2 the woman she is...if I acheive that...I've acheived success!!! Love You Gram Ma Ma  smile

    Sheep Dog off the old Bugs Bunny cartoon.  He rocks!  He has a carefree job that he is faithful at.  He punches his time card and watches the flock.  He has great perception abilities.  He is able to tend to the flock without even seeing them  with all that hair over his eyes.

    Sheep Dog's the man!  smile

        Not really, hot chocolate comes later before bedtime.  The question was posed and it has been answered.  Very few people in this world actually strive toward emulating characteristics of their role models.  In light of that I chose a light-hearted character that always made me laugh.  smile

    My aunt Jean, because she wasnt afraid to be a strong, outspoken woman in politics during the 50's and 60's. Not that I dig politics..but she showed me its ok to be different, and that Barbie and Miss America were not the models that every woman should emulate.
