One Life One Legacy~ Jeni L

I met Scot Aubinoe at the  Emilie Inc. Branding conference in February.  We discussed his company
One Life One Legacy .  The goal of One Life One legacy is to sell inspirational t-shirts to be a visible reminder that motivates people to act now and give back today.  With each shirt that is sold one is given to a person in need.   I promised Scot at the conference that  I would write about my hero.   I thought it would be an easy task, then I began to wonder, who is my hero.  What is a hero?  As I have walked through this life of mine, with many ups and downs, so many people of touched me.  I have many heros, but this woman is a hero like no other.  She is a beacon to me.  She has a successful business she started with young children even with many people discouraging her.   She shares my belief system and desire to love above all things.  She is an amazing woman and mother.  She is what I strive to be like, Jenifer Lloyd.  I met her at a meeting of area woman business owners and we connected instantly.  I tease her that our eyes met across the room and it was love at first sight.  The more I get to know her the more I crave her wisdom and advise on all things.  She has adopted me like family, and my children as well.  Our family was hit with some rough news three months ago, when we heard Peter's Step Mom was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer.  Jeni has walked us through all our questions and given us advice, and encouragement.  When my daughter had  to go to the Doctor, I call Jeni for good questions to ask when I needed to advocate for better testing for her.  She works tirelessly for our community and state to encourage, love, and assist those who have heard the fateful words, "it is cancer".  Today One Life One Legacy posted Jeni's story, Click Here and learn about my hero.  I encourage everyone to think of their hero and post them on One Life One Legacy.  It is a great project, worthy of our support.

That is totally awesome Amber. I love Jeni too, and I think God is using her in so many ways. I only pray that I will be as willing to be used through challenging times as she has been.
