Two Remarkable Women~

I have had the great pleasure of knowing these two remarkable women,  Karena of Art by Karena  and Linda of Life and Linda. No, we have yet to meet face to face, or even talk on the phone, but only through our blogs and emails.  Both of these women have been such an inspiration to me.  Each and everytime life has kicked them in the butt, and let them down, instead of whining, complaining, crawling in a hole, they have reached out, shared, and possessed a positive attitude.

I feel like this quote sums the two up perfectly.  One has had to endure numerous surgeries on her hip, endless hours of rehab, to only have to do it again, and again, and again.  The other, is now facing cancer for the second time.  But, each have once again reached out, shared, and conveyed a fighter's attitude!

Karena and Linda, thank you both for being such an inspiration.

And, to those of you reading.  Please lift these wonderful women up in prayer.  At some point in our lives we all face those challenges, some more trying than others, but with the love and support of those around us (known and unknown) we can beat what ever comes our way.

Love you girls!
