A Quote I Like

You gain strength, confidence, and courage through every experience in which you actually really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt

I love this quote,too, Martha. Recently when I was talking to my Aunt Teresa, she told the story of when she was a young girl and Eleanor Roosevelt and Amelia Earhart came to Douglas and she went out to the airport with her dad to meet them. I remember always hearing what a great lady Eleanor was when I was growing up!!

Wow, Sheila! That is an awesome story. How amazing it must have been for a young girl in those days to go and see two women who were so strong and successful. Did they take picutes? I have never read a biography of Eleanor or Amelia and plan to pick one up today while I'm out shopping.
