You just have to believe you are great enough to do it. Because you are. Have a nice day and remember, Love yourself.” I saw it when changing Grace’s diaper. I love the way that she put this in a place only women with babies and young children might see it. Overly sentimental perhaps, but given the huge goal in front of me and all the other mothers headed to Springfield that day (and in the days ahead), I thought I’d pass it on.
