INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY
Let's celebrate together!
Some of you are finishing up your day as I start mine.
We may live apart by geographic standards, but, unified by womanhood, many of our challenges and joys are similar.
I am linked to women across the globe by ideals, values, and love.
My most treasured of women
mother grandmothers sisters
grand-daughters aunt cousin
have loved me, taught me, and given me
freedom to be who I am
Women I know are banding together to banish violence and poverty.
They are working to bring education to less-developed parts of the world.
They are teaching their children to give back.
They are sharing their talents
and loving the “hard-to-love”
and managing a smile in the ravages of disease.
They are mixing adventure into the mundane
and caring for their aging parents
and singing to a child
and keeping families connected.
They are my heroes and I treasure them.
Who are the treasured women in your life?
How do you celebrate International Women's day?
