In your response, depict something or someone you admire. Bonus points if you share a paragraph or two on the source of your admiration.
For this week’s challenge I didn’t have to think too long about who I admire. It is definitely Claire who at 95 is starting out on a new adventure. She is selling her home and relocating to the western part of the state. I admire all women who break barriers and live their lives to the fullest no matter the obstacles placed in front of them.
Formerly a librarian, wife, mother, avid reader, world traveler, and life-long learner. Claire was a part of the book club I belonged to and we hit it off from the start. She has a great sense of humor and wonderful philosophy on life. Always ready with a smile no matter how her body is feeling. After her husband’s death she continued to travel and explore the world.
Claire was taking college courses until she decided to give up her car a couple of years ago. Some of the courses she enrolled in were The Works of Shakespeare, Spanish, and many others. She continued to learn and build skills on the computer, even has a Facebook page and email. Claire is a genuine soul who is filled with love, compassion, and a sense of humor.
I will miss her cherry disposition and wisdom. She will forever remain in my heart no matter where she travels and I feel privileged for having her as part of my life. Our loss is her new communities gain.
