Today is International Women's Day, yay! I am sad that I didn't even know that until one of my small group friends sent me the Google image today and said "it's International Women's Day, this made me think of you". So sweet. I'm thankful to live in a country where women and men have equal rights, hopefully the world will continue to change where this will be the case in all countries. I saw where women of valor were commended on one of my new favorite blogs and I thought I'd commend the first woman of valor who influenced me, my mom.
Mom, you are an amazingly hard worker and have a strong work ethic. You help those who need help and don't seek praise. You fiercely love your family and would do anything for them. You are a strong woman that has weathered many storms and I know you credit the Lord for that strength. You taught me to stand up and be my own person. You've taught me to hold my tongue and think through my words and actions. You've taught me that I can truly do anything I set my mind to. You have loved me unconditionally. You taught me grace, class, style and poise (things that you can't put a price on). You always have a plan for a plan for a plan. You are full of mercy. I know I will always have you in my corner and for that I am truly thankful. You are an incredible woman of valor. I love you!
