Are You Worthy of Imitation?

I recently joined an online weight loss group, SparkPeople. One of things that you can sign up for is an email called Healthy Reflections. Well this morning I opened up my mailbox and I found this quote in it:

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.

- Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

Wow. What a powerful quote. It made me take a moment and think if I was worthy of imitation. I would like to say that I am.

I have been trying to get healthier. I am exercising daily, watching what I eat and I am drinking lots of water. They are helpful and supportive. They put up with me stopping all the time in the grocery store to read labels. LOL.

I am showing them that there is more to life than the tv or computer. They see me reading, baking or creating a new card for someone I love. They see me creating crafts that I love.

Am I worthy? I am not sure. But I am going to make sure that I am.
