International Women's Month

March 8 was International Women's Day and I wrote a tribute to my mother. I enjoyed honouring Mum in this way and got some good responses from readers too. When I showed the post to Mum, she was really pleased.
So far so good. But I think I'm not done with IWD yet. I think I'd like to write about other feminine influences in my life, particularly during my early life. So I'm declaring March International Women's Month. Watch out for more posts...
Meanwhile: who were the major feminine influences in your life when you were growing up? Write and tell us.


  1. Like your mom, my mom was an amazing infuence when I was growing up and she still is. As a broke single mother with two kids, she masterminded a way to start her own business and became the most successful florist in NJ. She worked 6 days a week throughout my childhood and taught me that hard work and creative thinking can get us anywhere.

  2. Thanks for sharing that, Suzanne. Your mom sounds like a wonderful lady, strong and determined. My best wishes to her, and to you.

  3. Happy Women's month to you!
    I read the post on your mom, my salutations to her. :)
