"Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life." Amy Poehler
These women are the warriors who changed my life.
Encircled by your friendship, love and faith,
I was mentored and schooled in womanhood and friendship.
You inspired me to be more kind, more gracious,
You emboldened my notions of courage,
You revealed the steel blade within my vulnerability,
And became my role models for resilience's possibilities.
With you behind me...I ignore what is expected in order to celebrate the extraordinary, because every image is better when you see it too. I laugh at myself and all that is and will be, because every moment is lighter when we laugh together.
In gratitude and love for you.
