I was umming and aahing about what to write about for Celebrating Womanhood, when I decided to rope David in and see what he thought. Here’s our combined effort!
Celebrating Womanhood with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dave
Okay, now I’m getting frightened. Seriously, though, being a mother – not just the birth but beyond that – is incredible. Women are amazing in so many other ways though. I mean, men are too but this is a Celebrating Womanhood day.
My Mum was a SAHM when we were little but worked when we got a little older. She then trained to be a teacher after we’d grown up and left home. She now holds a great position. She’s worked so hard. Every time I need inspiration, I think about all she’s achieved.
When I think about women I think about mothers but I think it’s the qualities that makes women great mothers that I’m really thinking about. How caring they are, compassionate and loving, patient and kind.
I think women have a natural gift when it comes to caring and being emotionally in tune. They so often seem to know the right things to say when you’re struggling. Not to bring down men, of course, but you know it’s unlikely a woman will say ‘Hey, you Pansy!’ when you need a shoulder to cry on.
I’m all for equality of the sexes and it’s been a long time coming. There are always going to be differences but women have shown how much they can overcome and achieve. We need to support them, not block them.
How are you Celebrating Womanhood?
