You inspire me and give me hope for humanity!

I knew this book writing business was hardly going to be a walk in the park, I mean.. seriously... could I have picked a more heart wrenching subject to cover?  I knew there would be many tears, on my part and others as we walk back down that road they once travelled - or are still travelling.  I knew I would reach road-blocks, writers-block, red-tape, legalities and massive obstacles.  This I was certain of, and threw myself into it with the "deal with it as it comes" attitude (I have a really nice bucket of sand beside my computer desk to bury my head in when it gets toooooo hard ;) )

What I hadn't expected, and wasn't quite prepared for, is meeting so many inspirational people with so many heartfelt causes, charities and support systems.  Many of these have evolved from their own personal battles.  Some are ongoing stories - parents of children that for the entire life of their child will be riding the roller coaster and most likely their cars could find their way to the hospital without direction from the human occupants.  Some have long said goodbye to their angels and their work is in honour of their child.

All of these people amaze me.  I am in awe of the charity they show towards their fellow humans.  The selflessness, dedication and love that they show on a daily basis. 

These days - if you believe what people say - you get nothing for nothing.  Well, what I've discovered is that this is not actually true.  If you look around (and not even too hard) there are people out there doing beautiful things for others left right and centre and asking for nothing in return but the warm fuzzy feeling that they may have eased someones pain for just a second.  That perhaps, for a moment they have lightened the load of a fellow human going through a kind of heartache they can relate to.

I'm planning on introducing you to some of these people I speak of over the coming months.  They deserve some recognition.....even though they do their utmost to keep the focus on their work and claim that they are nothing special.

Indeed, they ARE something special.
And appreciated.
And I hope you will join me in saying thank you for reminding us that there are still good people out there.

First of my featured people will be revealed in a few days ;)
