Inspirational Monday: Getting up that mountain

Hi Nadra and Dawn!!!

After my aha! moment (click here to read about it) in the car, I walked up Kennesaw Mountain. At the entrance of the road heading to the peak of the mountain, I said, "The first person that encourages me to get up this mountain, I'm going to take their picture."

I guess because of the expression on my face told the story of pain, Nadra’s and Dawn's voices sprung out at me like thunder. “Keep going, you can do it.” I smiled and jumped at the opportunity to stop climbing. I told them about my feeling at the entrace of the trail and we had a great conversation. They were so sweet and kind especially because they allowed me to take their photo. We were equally impressed and thankful that our Creator allowed our paths - our energy to conjoin together as one. All three of us looked to the sky with gratitude.

I was inspired by Nadra and Dawn, such kindred, smiley and beautiful Beings, to get up that mountain. I successfully made it to the top. Thank you, Nadra and Dawn, because this time the expression on my face was of gratitude rather than pain because I did it with a smile. I felt the energy and the warm hellos from others as we passed each other.

God's universe had given me just what I asked for and that was the opportunity to meet beautiful people that were inspirational and conscious. What a gift! The sign posts we look for, we travel! Isn’t that powerfully amazing?

Who are what inspires you?

Happy Inspirational Monday!

JAH has certainly provided us with all that we need. I am inspired by random acts of kindness.

I totally want to cross your path! I'm like that, talking to people, never met a stranger, but up here in WI, people don't really talk to each other. I get strange looks when I speak and I have noticed that it's made me talk less. Back home, in Missouri, I was often told that I could get the life history from a tree, people always opened up to me - in check out lines, etc. I miss that.
