Believe in yourself

Thursday: Artichoke Pasta

Reflections from the Backcounter

Find your center and stay there. Life can send you a series of challenges that seem overwhelming. Your center is your safety. Often a blow can seem crushing but the truth is that women are a lot like the old clown punching bags that we had as kids. We are hit, knocked over but we always bounce back. A good friend says" Hit me with your best shot" and she always gets back up. Stay centered, have faith and remember to count on your friends. They will always help you back up.

I sense a kindred spirit in you! I'm reminded of a quote, "A woman is like a tea bag. You never know how strong she is until she's put in hot water." That may not be verbatim, but you get the point. Blessed be.

Wow - Julia - "clown punching bag - hit me with your best shot" - you took the words right out of my mouth. :) You are a good listener!
