Recently a reader e-mailed me and mentioned that she'll be having a bone marrow transplant within the month and would like to have something in her hospital room that would help her to remain cheerful during this time. She mentioned her favorite quote and that she'd love it if I ever decided to make it into a printable. I knew immediately that making a printable was one small thing that I could do for her, to help her through this time, as well as for any of you who are experiencing 'rough waters'.
Her favorite quote is: "We have no control of the winds in adverse situations,
but we can adjust our sails.
So what happens when I have two different ideas for the design and the two people I ask for opinions each like a different one? Why, I post them both and let YOU decide...that's what I do. :)

Edited to add: Revised 'a' Version
(I did a bit of cutting and pasting and fixed the 'a' in sail so it doesn't look like a 'q'.)
To Download the prints:
1. Click on the image--this is important, it will open the image in a new window at it's fullest resolution.
2. Either right click on the image and choose 'save image as' to save it to your computer, or click on 'copy' to copy and paste it into a document, like Microsoft Publisher/Word, or another similar program.
3. If you past it into a document, you will need to size the image before you print it. Just click on the image and drag it over to the ruler bar then click your mouse on one edge of the picture. While holding down the button, move your mouse to enlarge/reduce the size of the picture. Drag it vertically and horizontally to the size that you want it. The words in some sizes may appear slightly stretched. This quote will look the best as an 8x10.
4. Center the image on the document page and print.
There is so much truth to this quote. Sometimes life sends us in directions that we don't expect, but we can choose to do our best to keep our spirits high and just 'keep sailing'.
