National Women's Day

Every year on August 9, South Africa celebrates Women's Day.

In celebration of Women's Day, I'm sharing something that was sent to me by my friend Chantal. I think it sums it up quite nicely about what a woman is.

RESPECT A WOMAN BECAUSE....
You can feel her INNOCENCE in the form of a daughter
You can feel her CARE in the form of a sister
You can feel her WARMTH in the form of a friend
You can feel her PASSION in the form of a beloved
You can feel her DEDICATION in the form of a wife
You can feel her DIVINITY in the form of a mother
You can feel her BLESSING in the form of a grandmother
Yet she is so TOUGH too...
Her heart is so TENDER...
So NAUGHTY...
So CHARMING...
So SHARING...
So MELODIUS...

She is a WOMAN

So which women do you regard as true hero(ine)s? It can be anyone... I'll have to say my mother...along with every single mother in the world.

Women24 pays tribute to women all over the world who "do good".

Leave a comment about the women you love :)
To South Africa - have a fantastic day!
