As we wrap up Women’s History month, I can’t help but express my gratitude to you all. I applaud women for all they do.
Grandmothers, I thank you for your words of wisdom. Thank you for the life experiences you have shared with me. I pray I live as long as you ladies. Thank you for raising my parents and enabling me to be born.
My lovely Mother, I thank you for giving birth to me and raising me as your precious jewel. You love and discipline me as your only treasure. You teach me the importance of prayer and faith in God.
Aunties, you raised me and changed my diapers. You love me and shower me with gifts. You showed me how to be a woman. You care for me and teach me about life.
Sisters, you have been there since day one. We have argued and reported each other to our parents. As my older sisters, I respect and look up to you. Yes, there is an unbreakable bond between us, and I pray we keep it tighter as we grow older.
Friends, thank you for being my sisters. Thank you for allowing me to sleepover at your homes. Thank you for laughing with me. Thank you for supporting me. Thank you for correcting me; I still love you all.
Co-workers and mentors, thank you for showing me diversity. You have taught me to fight for what I want. You show me who people really are. You help me grow and learn about the work environment and life.
I thank you all.
I love and respect you all.
Keep doing the good work you do.
We are powerful so let’s keep our heads up and keep running this beautiful race called ‘life.’
