We have been talking about children today and this week I was looking through the paper and there was a face that I have the privilege of seeing on a fairly regular basis in an ad. This woman is someone that gets very little recognition…and, well, she is the last person who would ever seek it. Over the years as I have gotten to know her I have learned that she is the first to volunteer to stay overnight at her church when they host families who are homeless in the interfaith network, she is the first to deliver food to those who are sick or at home, and when you need a kind word, someone to be there…well..she is there. A few years ago when her granddaughter needed to be cared for full time, she started her life over and gave everything she had not only to be her primary care taker, but to be give her the best home possible and succeeded…and the ad she is in..well, that was for being a survivor of heart disease and sharing with other women how to take care of themselves…..In heart month..she is a heart bigger than most and she is someone we can all look up to as a power of example…so this week,  I spy Jean Cherry…a woman who teaches us that living by the heart is a powerful way to live each day!
