Who Is YOUR hero?

I love this old phrase that any old donkey can knock a building down, but it takes a good man or good woman to build one up. Do you have someone in your life who has been your hero - - who has built you up when you needed that?

In my life, I would have to say my mom definitely. She's the one that has been through with me ups and downs, and even if we have our differences (and not much at all), mostly I'm agreeable with her most of the time because her take on life is always wise and heroic. She will always be the apple of my eye. I can never find anyone as heroic as her. She has gone through some deep in a rut situation that not all can get back up and for that, I admire her and feels that she will always be my best example in life.

I have many heroes. Heroes for life, heroes for art. Joss Whedon is one of my big heroes, art-wisely speaking. He's genius, he can do everything art can provide, including high philosophical discussions. For life, I have many heroes, and every one of them contribute in some way to my inner self and my attitude towards life and the world. My parents, for example.

hi valentinesdiner.that would have to have been my husband, I am now a widow but during all my marriage he knew I had low self esteem so he adopted something 'from an old tv series the bionic woman. he 'made me say aloud I am somebody,I like myself, I am unique, I am Patsie Hatley,then he would say yell it mean it, you are somebody. also' he reminded me that Christ said first you must love yourself so then you can love your fellow men. He was the wind neath my wings as the song goes.I will always treasure the 43 years we had together and remember what he taught me.
