For those of you who may wonder what each Friday’s FITFS series is about, I will catch you up. It’s all about heroes, specifically my heroes in the Blogosphere. People I admire, have a blogging relationship with, people I want to emulate in some way (or in every way). People I learn from.
You know that corny line in the movie with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt, As Good as it Gets? – “You make me want to be a better man?” Well, my Following in the FootSteps heroes enrich my life and by their very example make me want to be a better person.
And so it is with Georgette Sullins where this multilingual wife, mother, daughter, and grandmother takes us along on her journey of memories, life lessons, and new things discovered. We get to arm chair it with this well travelled southern lady. On her very first blog in Sept. 6, 2010 she started us off with memories of Oaxaca Mexico.
As a teacher for over 30+ years Georgette continues to teach us in the most delicious way. Her entertainment value is first but oh my there are wonderful things to learn from all over the world. I love how she did an end of the year review and in December 2011, I think it was, she gave us a recipe for mulled wine, that I had been searching for since 1985. The exact recipe!
Georgette’s blog has universal appeal, I believe – and I say universal because should there be an intelligent life form in space I am sure they will also be reading her.
Oh! And she names scarecrows! Don Francisco is one!
Do I have a favorite blog? Can’t say I do because as soon as I read one, it becomes the fave.
Now just what would I like to emulate about Georgette?
Certainly her ability to place us along side her as we travel, observe and learn. Becoming part of her reality. It’s a nice place to be. In her company. Could not ask for better! And, her enthusiasm for life, her joy and her faith! Oh! and her humour and wisdom. Oh! and of course her appreciation for me which makes me want to do the same for others.
Please do drop by, say hi, and leave a comment or two.
*How do I choose my heroes? Well, in the main it is they who choose me. I cannot choose in order of importance as they are all important so I started first with those whom I have the closest relationship through comments on my blog and those who subscribe to Bridgesburning. I have a long way to go because I have been very blessed by these most wonderful people. And if I can ever truly emulate them it will be by inspiring others.
