I tired to upload the pix of me with Gloria Steinem and Lee Greenwood, but my tech skills got in the way. So go to my facebook page: VictoriousWomanProject to see them.

Today's quote came from Brigid Shulte’s daughter, Tessa. Brigid wrote that one day she found her daughter sitting in a chair, hugging herself and smiling. When asked her to explain, she said,

“I just love feeling my soul.”

This weekend, take a little time to hug yourself and feel your soul. And enjoy the moment!
