And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.
- Abraham Lincoln
All things are difficult before they are easy.
- Dr. Thomas Fuller
Lexie has been keeping a quote book for years. I've decided that they hold a kind of power. Sometimes power to understand ourselves better, sometimes power which gives us strength to carry on, sometimes power to see the path ahead. Life is hard, wasn't meant to be easy, but there is good and beauty in it - everywhere. A quote can help us see more clearly when we feel stuck in the fog. Thanks, Lexie for your strength and example. We can all do hard things. To find out that we can and that the hard things in life don't ruin us, but make us stronger is a priceless discovery.
