Celebrating Women

I received the insightful words below in my inbox this morning, sent by a good friend. Although I have been unable to find who wrote them, I decided I had to share them. 
It is a timely reminder to all of us to celebrate the amazing women in our lives ~ beginning with our wonderful mothers!

Women have strengths that amaze men. 

They bear hardships and they carry burdens, 

But they hold happiness, love and joy. 

They smile when they want to scream. 

They sing when they want to cry. 

They cry when they are happy 

And laugh when they are nervous. 

They fight for what they believe in. 

They stand up to injustice. 

They don't take "no" for an answer 

When they believe there is a better solution. 

They go without so their family can have. 

They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally. 

They cry when their children excel 

And cheer when their friends get awards. 

They are happy when they hear about 

A birth or a wedding. 

Their hearts break when a friend dies. 

They grieve at the loss of a family member, 

Yet they are strong when they 

Think there is no strength left… 

They know that a hug and a kiss 

Can heal a broken heart. 

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours... 

They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you 

To show how much they care about you. 

The heart of a woman is what 

Makes the world keep turning. 

They bring joy, hope and love. 

They have compassion and ideas. 

They give moral support to their family and friends. 

Women have vital things to say 

And everything to give.

However, with all that they do for others, women forget their own worth. We need to remind all those wonderful women in our lives of how amazing they are!
