Do YOU have a role model?

Soooooo, yesterday we talked about our kids and their role models...those folks they may look up to, admire, get inspired by their actions and choices. Um, what about you? Do you have a role model? There is no age limit on that, you know?

It's funny, but I think I have a variety of role models - for different parts of my life. Kind of the Justice League of Heather's Admired Folks. I've got role models for fashion, for family, for career, for life, for entertaining...all people I admire how they do things.

I think the cool thing, when you get older and have role models, is that you know the person isn't perfect, you don't want to be just like them, you may not really like much else but the way they move about the kitchen and can whip up something with ease.  It is not someone to mimic or copy, just someone I can take tips from, to make myself a little better version of me in that specific area. More of a reminder, a focus for, say, my style when I'm shopping...and don't we ALL need little reminders in these crazy days of ours?

So, who are your role models? You can break it down by category - your fashion role model, your career role model....

I've always looked up to my father.  He was always patient, kind, caring, sensible with money, and very hard working.  I've always tried to have those same qualities.

Never ever thought I'd day this but my mom.

In the past year or so she has really showed her strength.
She is so smart and brave and classy
It's a shame that she has had to go through the things she has to get the way she is now.

It's kinda cheesy but also my husband. He just walks through life effortlessly so sure of himself. He is so confident and knows exactly who he is.

I'm never sure of anything and I'm always second guessing myself.

and George Clooney. Seriously. He and his father have done so many wonderful things--even putting themselves in grave danger multiple times in their efforts to help end the genocide in Darfur.

My best friend. She has patience, a kind heart, and is loyal in every way. She lives her Christian faith daily, doesn't just talk about it. She is always there for me, and is now facing a health crisis with her husband. I hope I can be as helpful to her as she has always been to me.
