I found this wonderful quote that really seemed to speak to me today:

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,

"I will try again tomorrow."


Anybody else have a great inspirational quote that speaks to you? I put things like that in a journal that I've started so I'll have them all in one place.

Here's one I live by:

"Stop wishing for things you complain you have not, start making the most out of all that you've got. "

I heard that at a memorial service one time.. It just stuck with me...

Thanks for sharing all the words of inspiration. Personally, I like them all. Gretchen, I try to tell my kids the similar thing, unfortunately, kids today are very caught up in materialistic thinking. I worry that despite all my good intentions of putting my kids on the right path in the end I am going to fail.
