poem – from e-group

August 1, 2006

A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape…but a
woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn’t afraid of anything….
but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of her fear.

A strong woman won’t let anyone get the best of her….
but a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
a woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be unexpected
blessings and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
but a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she
will become strong..

“I can handle anything that life throws at me. I may not be able to
handle it well, or correctly, or gracefully, or with finesse, or
expediently, but I will handle it.”

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might
as well dance!
