This is what I get for not posting everyday -- so much to yap about and not enough time, nor space to share with my worldwide friends. Well ... this will teach me a good lesson!
First off ... Happy International Women's Day! I claim this groovy gal, Elizabeth Cady Stanton as one of my own, Now .... she doesn't look like she was much of a powerhouse. Stanton narrowed her political focus almost exclusively to women's rights, she was an active abolistionist. She was also involved in issues including women's parental and custody rights, property rights, employment and income rights, divorce laws, the economic health of the family, and birth control. And on top of all this, she was Momma to eight children! Bonnets and petticoats off to you, Elizabeth Cady Stanton!
Last night, I had a visit from a woman who was just as powerful as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, but in a gentle, loving way. She was my Godmother and one of my single aunts. Aunt Margaret died a month ago. I do miss her very much. In fact, every night, before going to bed, I whisper, "Meg, you can come for a visit tonight."
Well, last night, she took me up on my invitation! I was awaken by the sensation of my blanket being pulled up over my shoulders. (Which was the last thing I did before I said "cheerio" to her before her death.) Now, the husbster was upstairs working, so who else could have it had been accept for the one women I invite into my dreams every night -- Auntie Meg! She was really there ... taking care of her little girl, who is going through a tough time right now. I actually called out her name ... but nothing ... Just the feeling, just the love ... that's all I needed.
This blog is for all the beautiful women in our lives. Mommies, StepMoms, Gramdma's Aunties, Sisters, Nieces, Friends and Ancestors. They have made our lives what they are today ... fuller ... richer ... (maybe a bit crazier!) but still their influence DNA'S its way into our psyche!
