Life of late has been pretty crazy. I've found that sleep is often more restless and non-relaxing than vegging in front of the TV because of everything on my mind. I guess that's life though, right? 

I've decided to dedicate this post to one of my followers who inspires me. In fact, I think I'll be doing this quite often, so if you're following this blog it could be YOU! 

The person who inspires me to be a better person and be proactive is my sister Tracie! Tracie's birthday was yesterday so I've been thinking about what an amazing person she is. She basically has the patience of Job and is the best peacemaker I've ever met. I honestly don't ever remember fighting with her in my entire life (and believe me, that's got nothing to do with me!). She always remembers birthdays, anniversaries or anything else special in someone's life. She has made several baby blankets for family members, which is an arduous feat given that she can sometimes be quite the perfectionist. She is always looking on the positive side of any situation and very very rarely gets discouraged. She is not afraid to try new things and she doesn't judge by what's on the outside. She doesn't compare herself to other people - only to herself and in how she can become better. All of these things (plus about a million more) are reasons why my sister Tracie inspires me. 

Thanks for everything, Tra! I can't wait to play this summer!
