Yes, I got a tattoo. It is the Chinese character for strength. I did it to honor both of my daughters. I knew at the beginning of this year that, before it was over, I would have a tattoo. I just didn't know what it would be until recently. As you readers know, my youngest daughter is adopted from China and has special needs. She is a strong and brave soul, to have overcome all the obstacles she has faced and still remain such a light and a blessing to all of us. Secondly, my older daughter enjoys drawing and painting, so one day she asked me what I wanted her to draw for me. I told her to think of  a word that reminder her of me and paint the Chinese character for that word. She chose "strength." I hung the picture on my refrigerator, and then when I was cooking dinner a few days later, I saw that picture and knew that it was going to be my tattoo. So, there you have it. I guess my next tattoo will have to be in honor of my sons. I do have another wrist just waiting!

I wonder what the one for your guys will be? Hmmm.


“Transformation” Don ’t be stifled, set yourself free, You’re not who the world tells you to be. Break the mold, loosen the chain...
