...who not only provides the wind beneath your wings, but gives direction to your flight.
...who doesn't just passively listen, but wholeheartedly believes in you.
...who you can completely count on, for anything at any time.
...who is never burdened by your concerns, but rather inspired by your insights.
...who looks with you at things anew, outside the box, and without judgement.
I am among the lucky ones, as I have such a person in my life. She anticipates my needs, sometimes before I do, and with unending energy helps me find a solution. Consumed with the myriad details of raising 4 children, she is busy, yet tirelessly excited and interested in the details of my life. She greets me every day with a huge smile and a reassuring hug, and willingly dives into the list of tasks involved in starting a business.
My sister, Carol Lynn Walker, has been all that I describe. She has provided me with the tangible components of a functional workshop for ddkdesigns, complete with willing staff (her sons, husband Paul, and friend Roddey Shroyer), as well as the welcomed diversions of baton twirling (Kelly Debora) and freshman float building and volleyball (Amy Lynn). But, most importantly, she has given me the precise assistance I need to make my ten year dream become real, via the intangible support and immesurable belief in me.
How do I thank you, Care Care La Moco? I love you with all my heart.
