Wordful Wednesday: Girl Power

Here's to Rachel Alexandra, the filly who won the Preakness Stakes last weekend. Her victory in the second leg of the Triple Crown shows just how tenacious and tough we women can be, huh?

Speaking from a female point-of-view, it's hard not to root for a good-looking gal who has the smarts, too.

So, on behalf of women who rock everywhere, I give you these famous ladies, brought to you by Angie and her Wordful Wednesday:

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe, Author

Toughness doesn't have to come in a pinstripe suit. ~Dianne Feinstein, US Senator

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. ~Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady and Philanthropist

Have a Wordful Wednesday!

That was a great race. I was worried about her racing the big boys until I saw what a big girl she was I knew she would be just fine!
