I’ll be honest…I didn’t know that this was international women’s day till Google reminded me of it.

A day to celebrate women!

A day to celebrate all of the wonderful things women have done for our world!

Let me write it again….LIFE!!!!!

No matter who you are, a woman gave you life. It’s the least you can do to say Thank you and celebrate it. Because no matter how bad you see your life, at least you’re still going through it and have the opportunity to make it better.
