Proud Mamas

Today is International Women's Day and today I choose to honor Leymah Gbowee and all the amazing Mamas from Liberia. I honor her in thought, word, and deed. I am proud to be a Mama and I am deeply grateful for the strength and courage of the Mamas around the world.

You too are a strong, proud, beautiful Mama and make sure to take a moment today to honor yourself and to teach your children to honor the powerful being called a Mama. It is by the blood, sweat, and tears of your hard work that your family is healing. You are doing a beautiful thing and you are a beautiful creature.

I can...

  • Make a potroast that will knock your socks off!
  • Advocate for the needs of my children.
  • Love my husband more deeply and soulfully than I ever thought possible, even when I am sometimes annoyed with him.
  • Express my public opinion publicly.
  • Teach my children anything they wish to learn.

Happy International Women's Day. You have it better than some, worse than others, and a profound responsibility to honor yourself.
