Woman must be the pioneer in this turning inward for strength. In a sense she has always been the pioneer. Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I doubt Anne was talking about this particular pioneer but I often check out the Pioneer Woman blog. Her recipes make me swoon (and gain 10 lbs if I cook them!)
I enjoy reading about her families adventures out on their farm. It makes me jealous often, then I think about how much work all those cattle and horses would be and I come back to reality, I kinda like having 3 horses and a cat!
