This is for you. For all the good things we do as women for our families, friends and strangers. For running after someone’s escaped pet, and baking cookies the night before. We are seldom told the difference we make in someone else’s life.
This ditty from one of my favourites, Michael Franti, is just for you. Pour yourself the beverage of your choice, put up your feet or put on your dancing shoes.
We make a difference! Don’t ever forget that we can change lives every day, we are stronger than we know, and when we need to we can stand up to a boss or to our child’s principal, we can put a band-aid on a boo-boo, and walk home carrying 4 bags of groceries.
Look around at all the magnificent women who have climbed the walls of their poverty, their lack of education, their own personal demons. Let's learn from them and grow together.
Today, let’s celebrate. Because we deserve it!
