Jan. 17/18 – “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” -E. Roosevelt                                                                                               

Here’s a few fun facts – Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was an American politician, diplomat,

and activist. She married her fifth cousin Franklin. Not only did she serve as first lady

(1933-1945) but held regular press conferences, wrote a daily newspaper column,

monthly magazine column, and hosted a weekly radio show. Wow. She was widely

admired and controversial. According to her biography her personal life was anything

but dull. Eleanor was before her time in the evolution of women’s liberation.

Grace to you.

About bshiveofhope

I have worn different hats and travelled down many bunny trails in life- custodian, writer, florist, grandma, community nurse, mom, wife, Jesus Girl. With these vocations have come many stories and life experiences that I want to share with you. They're not all warm and fuzzy, and are sprinkled with humility, and sadness. That's life. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
