The above photo is of Vulcana, taken in the early 1900s. Vulcana was the stage name for Kate Roberts, a Welsh strongwoman of Irish parents who toured music halls throughout Europe and Great Britain with strongman William Hedley Roberts, better known as Atlas.
What relevance is that to my intention to be grateful for something every single day during November?
I am thankful today for my upper body strength,*** which keeps me from being a total loser in the fitness regime that I am currently undertaking.
***The upper body strength I do possess is, apparently, partly due to having to lift and carry and care for a fifteen year old with special needs and also to genetic inheritance (my grandmother and both parents are both quite strong). I'm grateful for both!
