Inspirational Friday

I'm late to the party with Debra, but I've been busily preparing for company and... my mother's retirement party is tomorrow (so excited for her, almost wish it were me)!  So, I guess better late than never.  I wanted to share three women that have really touched me this year.  Three very couragous women that probably have no idea the impact of what they've gone through has forever touched my life.  Here they are, in no uncertain order:

Cher of The Texas Woman with Deb.  I mean how could you not love this woman.  Her witt alone just keeps you in stitches.  Go over and see the "pet" name that she calls her husband.  You'll laugh, you'll cry, and then you'll be encouraged. She's also an amazing photograher.

This next lady needs no introduction.  The short time she's been in the blogging world and the friends she's made just makes me feel that much more happier to have called her my friend for so so many years.  She's a truely amazing woman.  The talent she has in one finger just blows me away.  And the funny part is, she can't seem to realize just how talented she is and that's my friend Ann of The Tin Rabbit:

The last woman on my list is Lanna of Antique Queens.  She has one of the absolute best attitudes in this business that I've seen and the energy, wow, not sure that I could keep up with her.  She seems to have a strength to her that is quiet yet you can definately see it.  I am amazed how she's continued to run a shop, all with a great attitude, and still go through what she's gone through.

You ask what made me want to feature these women for this post, well they all share this common bond and seeing the courage they had to face this head on just makes me so glad they are my friends and thankful that God brought them through this.  Because of them I made sure and went this past week to get my checkup, so for this, I thank you all! 


  1. Theresa, the inspiration you shared is so sweet and personal. Knowing people puts us in the place of being with them on their journey. Loved hearing about your inspirational friends. And like Anne, I have to say that you've been the most inspiring in my life of blogging. If it weren't for you I wouldn't be here, so thank you, dear friend. I know there are so many like me, on whom you've taken a chance and encouraged. Maybe small to you, but lifechanging to us!
    lots of love, dear T,
