Heroes… a thought

Posted on December 13, 2011. Filed under: My Lemon Recipes |

I have many heroes, but I wanted to take a moment to reflect on three of them.  I have these “Amazonian” female cousins I’ve always looked up to, me being the youngest female cousin on the maternal side.  While spending a good piece of my childhood dealing with physical shortcomings, they made me feel like I came from royal blood and could overcome anything.  I had one cousin who was an international model, another was an artist who could (and did) knock out a guy with one punch.  Another was an adventurer and inventor, still another a mathematics whiz.

They watched over me during my various stages of healing.  They were not aware, but the actual healing came from them inspiring me.  A little bit of each of them is woven into the fabric that is me.  When I felt weak, I pulled on that fabric to make it through.  I have a stack of DC and Marvel, but nothing compares to my big cousins.  They never realized how much I observed them, and what strength they were, and are, for me.

In this, I discovered that sometimes, we ourselves are hidden heroes.  Somewhere, someone may be watching, drawing strength from our actions.

We all have a hero inside.
