One of my friends was diagnosed with lung cancer recently. I wanted to do something for her that wasnt super emotional (since she isnt the overly emotional type), but would give her a sense of strength when she needs it most. I found a quote online and put it on some paper made by Tibetan monks. The shell printed on the paper is the symbol for victory. The quote says " We gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in whice we really stop to look fear in the face. We must do that which we think we cannot".



Thanks for looking Smiley
