happy international women's day!

They smile when they want to scream
They sing when they want to cry
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous
They fight for what they believe in
They stand up for injustice
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without new shoes
so their children can have them
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend
They love unconditionally
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards
happy when they hear
about a birth or a new marriage

Their hearts break when a friend dies
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member
yet they are strong when there is no strength left
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart
Women come in all sizes, in all colours and shapes
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or email you
to show how much they care about you
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!
