Admiration :: Fall Fearless





Challenge 5 for Fall Fearless and Fly

Headline Prompt: "What or who have you consistently valued or looked up to in your life? What lessons have you learned from people you admire?

Quote Prompt: "Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator; but among those whom I love, I can: all of them make me laugh." ~W.H Auden

Color Prompt: Your favorite color now or from childhood, or both!


I have always valued the lessons of my father. When Dad died, strangers came up to me by the dozens, just to tell me that my dad helped them in their careers and made a difference in their lives. My dad always told me that "If it was worth doing, it was worth doing well."

My friend and co-teacher truly makes me laugh every single day.

Love. Perseverance. Faith. Forgiveness. Laughter.

These I value.

It's always heart-warming when other people appreciate the ones you love, too.
I like the rose over the old receipt page and the way it shows through.
