Who RUNS the World???

Thanks, Queen B for that anthem!  Happy International Women’s Day!  I like a day when we are celebrated…for out likes and dislikes; our opinions and objections; our strength and weaknesses. The beauty of being a woman is the choice  we have to be what we want in this world and how we can make a difference.  There are many women to inspire us with their words, their actions and their convictions. Here’s a few that I like… 

 As cheesy as this may be, she was/is my girl!  She was the first real mainstream female superhero and made all us little girls that we could get respect, be beautiful and kick some serious a**! I wanted to be her…and truth be told…still do!!😂 

  What’s not to love about FLOTUS Michelle Obama. I really don’t care what your politics are, she is an inspiring and intelligent woman. She had a career and a voice before taking on the FLOTUS role.  Her voice and involvement with children’s health today has helped pave the way for changes in our schools and at home.  I am excited to see what she does once out of the official limelight!

  You may not recognize her from this picture because generally what you see is her iconic movie star picture.  I love Audrey Hepburn because of the style and class that she portrayed on the silver screen. But her work and philanthropy outside of tinsel town is what makes her a superstar!!! 
  My sister, Mo is literally amazing. An attorney, a wife and a mom to 4 amazing kiddos that get to call me “Auntie Ang”.  She may feel crazy sometimes (don’t we all??) but she does it with grace and style!   

 Then there’s this lady right here…my mom!  Mother of 2; Grandmother of 6; multiple college degrees and the reason why my sister and I are who we are today. This is a perfect day to celebrate Moms and not only Mother’s Day. ❤️

I could go on and on, but you’d be bored! Make sure you celebrate YOU too!!  

 
Do you have some strong ladies you like to share about?

    Awww…thanks! It is indeed a blessing, honor and privilege to be called Mom and Grandma/Grandma Sunshine by my two FABULOUS daughters and six, count ’em six, GRAND grandchildren, respectively.

    If I see far, it is because I stand on the shoulders of two wonderful women – my mother, Honoré B. Smith and grandmother,
    Sue Alexander Twine. Let this be a “shout
    out” to them – Mom and Twiney-girl!

    From them I learned, among many things, how to absolutely adore learning, how to leave the house looking like $2 million, i.e., never let ’em see you sweat, how to be a mother-in-law
    who gets invited back and a grandmother who the kids like to be around.

    None of this do I take for granted.
