The Best of the Best

The Best of the Best

Inspiration comes from the most unusual places

Last week, Eric and I spent a beautiful Sunday on Lake Michigan. We were out on our friend’s boat. Friends and family were drawn to the lake to watch an air show over the Northwest Indiana Lakefront. We anchored near shore. The show was amazing from the VIP view from our floats on the water and picnic lunch on the beach.

All afternoon, we watched amazing parachuting daredevils, feats of heart-stopping stunt plane loops and stalls, and spectacular mid-air military maneuvers. As the afternoon wore on, we gathered on the boat to watch the final act of the day – The Blue Angels.

I must admit, The Blue Angels took my breath away—the speed, the sound, the accuracy. I had to admire their dedication, hard work, precision, awe-inspiring skills, and most of all, magnificent trust in one another. Their performance inspired me to want to “fly jets” in my everyday home life, work, and writing. It’s not every day we get to see the best of the best—watching the Blue Angels reminded me to be the best of the best in all I do.

What inspires you?

Between you, me and the gatepost,
