There’s a Hero in everybody’s heart

 

Heroes.

I’ve been filming a small program over the past week about my  heroes.

 It’s a reminder of our personal journey over many, many years.

At this time of the year, for about 20 years we camped on Lake Bonney in scorching heat with about 100 or more friends. We ate communally, fished, swam, quilted and shopped. Our children loved it with a passion and continue the love by sharing the experiences with their children.

We all have large families and to have a week of wind down was the best beginning to the year we could ask for.

Keith and I haven’t been for 10 years or so, but the memories are still some of the happiest days. I consider the friends  who traveled to far flung places to bring a small child back home to Australia, my Heroes.

In saying that I wonder who you consider a hero?

As I mentioned, my heroes are the families in our adoption group who some 40 years ago changed the lives of so many children. We all grew up together in happiness  and pain and its hard to come to terms with the fact that some are loosing their personal battles.

I also include my close personal friends, Miss Lisa Blevins and our team of volunteers in Alamogordo New Mexico. We make the sun shine for many and you are my hero’s. This will be our best year yet.

My mentors, Gay Jenkins, an older friend who lives in England. She has  wisdom and determination.

Kaye England for her guidance and belief in my career.
Ginger Geissler your generosity touches many.
Kathy Heydorn. Your determination through adversity is a lesson to all.
Mr Jim West who’s enthusiasm and talent is infections and makes happiness happen for 1000’s of people.

I treasure my friends who are honest and sincere and of course, our Bambinos and Grandies.

    Loved this post. Wonderful photos of Lake Bonney, a lovely spot to meet and camp, we always stop there as we travel at least twice a year. My heroes are some very close friends who support, love and care through every joy and sadness and the most difficult times. We laugh, cry and travel through life together. Then of course there is my mum and my dear husband .
