Tonight while encouraging a dear friend of mine to
“be yourself because there is no one quite like you”
She said to me that my words brought her senior quote to mind ~
“Be yourself, nobody does that better than you!”
which brought to my mind
my senior quote….
“The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory”
Who knew seventeen years ago when I was pondering what words to leave under my cheesy senior portrait
how very true and relevant this statement would become???
I sure didn’t.
Now, in my mid thirties, I recognize those eight words as
College wasn’t an easy battle but allowed me to pursue the career of my dreams!
Striving for excellence while teaching elementary school has been a daily battle but has taught me that I want to BE better and DO better every.single.day!
Infertility and loss were brutal battles but the VICTORY we are experiencing now with our two boys was WORTH IT ALL tenfold!!
… stepping into a season of life where SO much is “uncertain”
the one thing I DO KNOW is
the toughest battles are still yet to come
and you know what that means??????
the GREATEST VICTORIES are too!!
