In the past week I have shared different places, things and people that inspire me to write. In this last post for my "Inspiration to Write" series I want to highlight the last three people that inspire me to write. I've saved them for our final topic because they are the ones that motivate me, encourage me, love me and provide the energy and push needed to keep writing.
Two people that inspire me to write are my parents, Ken and Sue Allen. The parents of Heidi Allen who has been missing 16 years, with the 17th anniversary of her disappearance one month from today. My parents inspire me each and every day - as they wake up and start the day with a smile on their face and hope to find Heidi. My parents inspire me because they set aside their own needs or desires for the sake of my and my family. My parents inspire me each day because they are able to live their life after losing their youngest daughter in such a tragic way. They inspire me because they hope and trust there will be closure as it pertains to knowing where Heidi is.
Each day my parents wake up and place their feet on the floor not knowing where their youngest child is yet they choose to get up and "do". They have decided not to let the evil and bad of the world consume them. My parents inspire me as they have the strength and heart to find a reason to get up every morning - with hope...today will be the day Heidi is found! I love you Mom and Dad!
The final and foremost person that inspires me is God! He sent His One and Only Son to be born a baby, to suffer, die and be buried - knowing He would rise again three days later for my sins. For your sins. I write because He has blessed me with amazing parents and hope...God has never left my side in this journey of not knowing...I left Him. Thankfully I recognized the many blessings and God-stops in the past sixteen plus years - with the support of God, my parents, my family, the community and all of you...God will be glorified! Thank you for reading!
I am doing a presentation tomorrow about writing in the classroom. Read tomorrow's blog to learn how it went.
