I will persevere!

A newly found friend from Pink Ribbon Cowgirls just sent me this awesome quote that she said helped her through chemo:

                 “I am responsible.  Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening,
                 I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life.
                 Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life.
                 I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can
                 choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself.”
                                    ~ Walter Anderson

Perfect timing as I’ve been having very emotionally heavy days lately.  I feel like I need to tattoo this on my forearm or something–or not.  Maybe I’ll just add it to the sidebar of this blog. ;-)  

As Bridget Jones would say, “I will persevere!”
