March 8 is International Women’s Day and I would be remiss if I let it pass by without acknowledging some of the women in my life who have shaped me and supported me throughout my life.
There is no love like the love of a woman. Women are kind and nurturing. Women make you feel important and valued, seen and heard. Women are the backbone of our society and need to take up more space and be allowed to be who they are, not someone’s spouse or someone’s mother, but themselves. When we put women in a space that minimizes them, it takes a little light out of the world, light that we desperately need.
