INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY #IWD2020 #EachforEqual March 8, 2020

I couldn’t let this day pass without recognizing the importance of Women in my life.
The most important being my mother of course. She raised eight children each two years apart. She is the strongest person I know. She had depression at times, but she never let it stop her from being the rock my father and we kids relied on.
Our father worked two jobs, about 70 hours a week, to house, clothe, and feed us, so Mom was having to play both mother and father on many levels at home. She gave me an appreciation for strong women who make a difference in this world by simply being who they are.
