The Gentle Hand of Lady Bird

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at PhotobucketI don’t care who you are or what your politics are–you’ve got to recognize that Lady Bird Johnson was a great and gracious lady.

Mrs. Johnson was a calm and steadying influence on her often moody and volatile husband as she quietly attended to the demands imposed by his career. Liz Carpenter, her press secretary during her years in the White House, once wrote that “if President Johnson was the long arm, Lady Bird Johnson’s was the gentle hand.”

She was devoted to her husband. Still yet she was true to herself.

God bless you Lady Bird. May you rest in peace.
