She is the one who had nothing; and now you’re standing in her Empire, the one she built from scratch.

She is often the last one to take a break from her role.

She is the one who fought for you to be here.

Who is she?

She is the one who made a decision not to bring life into the world.

Who is she?

She is the one who decided to bring life into this world.

She is strong. Stronger than society likes to admit.

Who is she?

She is the one who gives time she barely has.

Who is she?

She is the one who lends an ear eager to listen.

Who is she?

She is the one who opens her arms for a warm embrace with an open heart.

Who is she?

She is independent.

Who is she?

She is the crafter, the dressmaker, the cake baker, the driver, the DIY- er and oh, so much more …

Who is she?

She is everywhere.

Who is she?

She is powerful.

Who is she?

She is Mother, she is Granny, She is Sister, She is Aunty, She is Cousin, She is Niece, She is friend, She is Godmother, She is Wife, She is Partner…She is a little mix of us, Women, who come in all wonderfully different shapes, sizes and colour.

Women are amazing, aren’t they? Men are obviously awesome too but so many women have so much history and we just get on with life and do what needs to be done.
