Thankful Thursday - Strong

"Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That's what little girls are made of.Bethany Hamilton

Bethany is definitely proof of that. She was a young surfer who had her arm amputated after a shark bite. Instead of giving into fear, she jumped back on the board and took up surfing again. 

My girls and their friends have already figured out that Bethany's saying trumps the one I learned, sugar and spice and all things nice, that's what little girls are made of.  I see their grit and determination. I hear their strong belief that they're strong and capable of anything and everything. 

And Bethany's words are not just for little girls. It's for everyone. I've taken her saying for me too and running with it. 

Happy Thursday, Guys.

What an inspiration she is! I'm a bit late visiting this week as I have been rather occupied with some things going on in my family. It's always nice to pop by and see what you have been up to. Thank you for sharing this and enjoy your weekend.

Hugs & blessings,
