We put up with, make the best of, and work with what we have.
Women are the smartest people in the world.
We reason, discuss, and find solutions.
Girls are bravest people in the world.
We aren't afraid to show our emotions and carry on.
Daughters admire, aspire, and attain.
Sisters encourage, enlighten, and edify.
Nieces connect, reflect, and respect.
Aunts know when to pull their hair up and when to let their hair down.
Grandmothers pay attention, work behind the scenes, and take care of every detail.
Together we keep the world turning,
keep the men yearning,
and keep the home fires burning.
I'm thankful for all the women in my life.
November was a tumultuous month for me. Severe highs and lows, many tears of sadness and joy, and oh so many wonderful hugs I haven't had in a very long time. I was blessed to be able to spend time with so many of my favorite women and I appreciate them all, especially living in an emotionless house full of boys.
One day as I was leaving my room, I noticed the hidden heart above. It comforted me during one of the bad days I had. It lifted my heavy heart with its levity and my day turned around.
May you find a hidden heart when you need it most!
