Ricotta Cheese Cookies

Made Famous By: Kathy Lombardi

One of my friends posted this quote on Face Book and it has really helped me out.
The funny thing is that Christopher Robin said it.
"Just remember, you're stronger than you seem, smarter than you think,
and braver than you believe."
As time goes by physically it is becoming harder and harder for me to do things. For example when I work out say I could do the elliptical at a level 10,
now a level 5 feels like a level 10 to me.
I am not going to quit or give up.
I am bound and determined not to let this get the better of me.
Some days it is overwhelming, but I have a great support team around me and my husbands shoulder to cry on. Since I read that quote when I am having a hard time I say to myself, "You ARE stronger than you seem and you ARE braver than you believe."
I say it over and over again until I make it a reality.
