I ran across a quote yesterday from one of my favorite people..Eleanor. She speaks to me like no other, and for me, her words always ring true. A practical down to earth woman, ridiculed for not being "pretty" or "eloquent" enough to be first lady, she had a quiet unwavering strength that I admire, and wish to possess. Here is the quote that struck me, and gave me hope:
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along."
