My Hero

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” I’m sure not the hero in my life, and I don’t think of myself as a victim either. But, reading this quote from screenwriter and journalist Nora Ephron made me think about heroes. My first hero was probably my dad. My dad was smart and he could do anything, from overhauling our old car to making me a whistle out of a willow branch. He was a carpenter, plumber, electrician and overall handyman, all in one. Later I had comic book heroes like Spiderman and Superman too, and some sports figures. But none of these were the hero I needed in my life. Even my dad couldn’t be there for me all the time. The one who has always been there for me, providing for me, protecting me, rescuing me, is my Savior. Jesus is my Hero!

  1. I think it is okay to have two heroes. Jesus first and our dads second. My dad would let me comb his hair for an hour. That’s true dedications. He could make anything. I would show him a picture and he would make it. I miss him, but he is being taken care of by my first hero Jesus. Thanks Sheila!
