The thing about #InternationalWomensDay is, it's sort of every day, no? Well, it ought to be, anyway. 'Cause women are da bomb diggity, yo.
Speaking personally, the women in my life are nothing short of inspirational. Beginning with the single greatest lady ever: my Mom.
She was the first woman to be a living example of love, kindness, compassion, fairness, strength, humility, empathy, humor, wisdom and of course, the most important of all things: faith.
My Mom, a devoted wife and parent, a brilliant nurse, a caring community member, a devout Catholic. What an ideal role model for little girls everywhere, especially for the two she raised. #LoveYouMom
I've been blessed with so many other incredible women in my life: my adorable yet strong-as-heck little Grandmothers, my fierce big sister, the incredible sister I got when I married my husband, my amazing aunts and beautiful, wonderful cousins; my absolutely ADORED goddaughter and nieces -- my besties who are really sisters from other misters. My Mum...and the Moms of dear pals whom I love to the moon and back. The teachers, the mentors, the colleagues, the sweet pals...the nuns for whom I will always hold special affection and reverence. My adopted "daughters".
Those lovely special ladies in my circle who have gone to heaven already.
Look, you don't need to have built an empire, started a revolution, or founded a billion dollar company to be an honorable woman. You just have to care enough to toss your pebble in the pond, Capisce? Your ripples will touch someone, somewhere because you are INCREDIBLE, girl.
Here's to brave, strong, wonderful, faith-filled, BADA$$ women everywhere. You rock.
