Worn Shoes

OK - so I am working out of town at a conference my organization is hosting ... and I am feeling that right now - at this very moment - I may be young at heart, but man oh man - my body hurts! Wish I'd worn my podometer cause I swear I've walked a thousand miles in my practical shoes! Enough ranting for now; today is International Women's Day. And women before me have walked a road far rougher and longer than any I ever will. So hats off to women - for loving us, mothering, teaching, caring, supporting, discovering, leading, giving and contributing ... And mostly in uncomfortable shoes!

Cheers from the Canadian capital.

  4. Lyn...I always love your insight regarding your mom and women in general.In my life every day was womens day but some of those days were painful knowing conditions in the world that were horrible for some women. Having a special day is appropriate to focus attention on the brave,courageous women who fight every day for equality. Polar Bear.
