Inspiration for the Week: My Heroes Out In the World

In his essay, "Heroism," Ralph Waldo Emerson said,

 "Oh friend, never strike sail to fear. Come into port greatly, or sail with God the seas. Not in vain you live, for every passing eye is cheered and refined by the vision."

Over the past week, I have been cheered by the vision created in this blog:

I am inspired by the account of one family's journey to Taiwan not just because I want MY family to enjoy a similar journey. And not just because it was one mom taking on a foreign country with 5 KIDS. Though WOW! is it inspiring for BOTH those reasons. But in her writings, I hear in the family's experiences the perspective-shifting, eye-opening, delightful moments all great adventures have. I am cheered and refined by reading of a journey, imperfect and laced with difficulty, but cherished too, for being the incredibly blessed learning adventure each moment was!

BRAVO! And check it out at!
