if i may, i would call you friends. and as friends, y'all should know that my world is a brighter and more exciting place because you're in it.

a few shoutouts?

BaconGrease - um, hello local male! who knew a guy would put up with my rants? bless you! (any other guys out there? introduce yourselves!)

my faithful encouragers - you guys know who you are. you have cheered me on since i started the baby blog, much to my delight! you make my world go round, and i am honored to have you as a daily part of my life!

my health warriors - mo, carolyn, Peace Be Me, and so many others... you guys are my inspiration! although i wish you didn't have to bear that pain, the peace i have from knowing someone else understands is crazy comforting. you guys are my angels!

my sisters in Christ - i don't even have words to thank you for the blessing you are. y'all help me cast my cares on Him everyday, and i can't thank you enough for that. please never stop sharing His love!

family/friends - thank you all dearly for humoring me... Tanya, Connie, Mom, Mrs. Kowalik, and my facebook buds, you are my daily inspiration! y'all are an invaluable part of my life. you contribute to all my successes, and Lord knows you're my source of wisdom (it sure doesn't come from me!).

now that i've put that out there, i'm off to spend the day smiling like a total goober.

who keeps you going in life?
where does your encouragement/inspiration come from?


  1. Hey beautiful,
    your last posts have left me lost for words. You are so amazing, reflected and just GREAT.
    The way you handle things, good and bad, is something we all can learn from. You do not come across as angry, no, you try to find what is positive, what can be learned, how you can continue move in the right direction. That is just beyond words, and I can not tell you enough times how wonderful you are, and how glad I am to know you.
    You ask who keeps me going in life, and know that you are one! You, my family and friends, some I've met here in this blogger-community. They all inspire me to continue, because they make me feel important and that my life matters. That is the best inspiration and motivation. The fire within me is also starting to get increasingly stronger, and it feel so good to finally find peace with being who I am.

    Keep it up Rebekah, continue to be just who you are <3

  2. I just read your other post and I was honestly shocked. Ugh, if I were there I would have just chewed her out and made her look like the complete idiot that she is. Seriously, she was so rude and needs someone to bring her back to reality.

    I'm glad that you are shrugging it off because you are SO beautiful and inspiring.

  3. Pshh, not as incredible as you. :)
    And ahhh I just read your last post! How rude! o.O

    PS: Blog award. Come get it. ;) http://recipesbymo.blogspot.com/2010/06/long-overdue-blog-awards.html

  4. goober head <3 hehe

    im just so thankful that you're able to see the honesty in everyones words. we all care about you so much and would call you a friend just as easily. enjoy the day, and enjoy your extra 'head held high' confidence!!

    xoxo <3

  5. so i just read your last post and i can't believe how rude that woman was to you! like seriously what is her deal!? YOU DO NOT LOOK LIKE A MAN IN ANY WAY. so what you have short hair? lots of women do....your gorgeous and a strong woman.

  6. aw, you inspire me so much too, I wish neither of us had to go through this pain but I am so glad I found your blog!!

  7. Family keep me going! And friends. And of course, wonderful, gorgeous people like you in the blogosphere who help me up each time I'm down, reminding me that there is so much in life waiting for me, reminding me of God's strength and unconditional love, reminding me that the sun continues to shine even when it is blanketed by grey clouds! Thank you! x)

    Much love
    Nat xoxo

  8. Hi Rebekah. I've been reading for a while but have yet to comment. My inspiration lately has come from blogs like yours and I've finally started up a blog myself so that I can really communicate. I've been following since your post on binge eating and I found your words really helpful. Thank you! Hope we can be in touch.
