Oddly enough it was a man at work who told me today was International Women's Day. So all my girls ... Happy Happy Day!
I've never given much thought to Women's Day .... although perhaps I should. We need to celebrate our uniqueness and our strength and everthing that makes us special. But not just once a year; every day. Women are the glue that binds everything together. We're the caregivers (big time); the cooks; the cleaners; the laundry person; the taxi (if you have kids although I must admit I have a pretty awesome "chauffeur"); the list goes on and on.
I digress a little ... today was just the most spectacular day, weather wise, that we've had in months and months. it got up to 14 degrees C (almost 60F); bright sun, not too windy at lunch ... I even made a point of walking down to Harbourfront. It was a brisk walk, followed by sauntering along the waterfront, then a brisk walk back to work. Everyone just seemed to be in a good mood, lots of people just sitting, basking in the sunshine. Of course I can't seem to sit still for that long ... or is that because I needed to get back to work ... hmmm
Ladies ... we need to make sure that we carve a little time for ourselves each and every day. It might only be 20 minutes. But I urge you to take the time. It's totally worth it. After all, without us, where would the men be?
