Friday Frills



A strong woman works out every day to keep her body in shape… 
But a woman of strength uses the power of kindness 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 doing the same in the future…
A woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes can also be a blessing
in disguise and capitalizes on them.

A strong woman knows how to walk on a tightrope in high heels...
But a woman of strength masters the art of walking tall after stumbling over. 

A strong woman wears the 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… 

A strong woman is one who gets her heart broken time and time again and still has the strength to gather the pieces to create a new life for herself. 

This is a Salute to you, dear friends, each of whom is a Woman of Strength.

I love it !! :)

Denise said...

Oh, thank you so much for including us there! I used to see myself as strong, but after some things, I kind of doubt many times... you know that! What I most like was "shaping her soul" and "grace". Shaping my soul, is what I always try... still owe you something :) will do it next week - a bit nervous because of the trip, so many things to do, and in 9 days I'll leave... :( Have a great weekend, my beautiful friend! You always make my Fridays!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Your frills of this Friday just express so much power and energy! I do agree with each sentences and with the contrast you outlined between the 2 kind of women. In my personal experience I can tell you that is in the journey we become woman of strenght, the experiences and the wisdom of ages only make it possible. Keeping having faith and optimism in all life is the best way to reach it! Happy Friday to you Sam, woman of strenght as well:) Hugs! xo

Denisa said...

I really like it. Have a nice friday and weekend.
