inspirations and forgotten birthdays

First of all, I have to confess that I totally forgot Jetty's birthday this week. He is married to my best friend Lisl, studying hard to become a preacher and a super star all-together. I'm so glad to have him in my world and if it weren't for him, I would have never conquered my fear of heights and made it up those rocks in Italy this summer. Thanks for pushing me friends.
Miss the two of them lots and am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo excited to spend some time with them and the rest of the gang after Christmas!

As for the inspirational part. A couple of weeks ago I was reading an interview Oprah did with Jay-Z and he said something that has been stuck in my head ever since. Thought you might like it too:

"There is the gift, there's the spirit and there's the work - all three have to come together. If one of those things is off, it can stop you from becoming who you were meant to be"
