WAKING INSTANTS 08: LISA
“If I can do it, you can do it.” That is one thing Lisa instilled in me the 36 plus year’s I was blessed to have her in my life.
With respect to her privacy, I’ll share what sums up those years for me in one word: COURAGE.
Lisa taught courage. She was the embodiment of it —and I miss that. I miss her courage among so many other things.
I learned through her ability to survive and then —to thrive in any situation, that we all could. I gained courage to stand up for myself. Courage to question what didn’t make sense to me. Courage to walk the path that has no markers or footprints.
Lisa exampled courage wholeheartedly —and then told us we could do it too.
She was the voice of reason, our sounding board, a guiding light, the rock-solid foundation of our gilded castle.
She still is.
