Today was the funeral for the grandmother of my son's lovely girlfriend, Katherine. The funeral was across the country and so we didn't go, but I've been thinking about the family all day. Her grandmother died after a short illness and leaves a large legacy. Last week her daughters, the "Satellite Sister," posted a tribute to their mother.
Mrs. Dolan was a do-er, and this tribute is as motivational as anything a highly-paid conference speaker or self-help author could hope to achieve. I've done a few things myself this week that I had put off doing, with her in mind. Read it and see if you don't agree.
I'm grateful for examples of "ordinary" men and women who have lived good lives.
