Thankful Thursday #51

I am so thankful for so many things everyday.

I am thankful for strong women.

I love the quote: 

     Here's to strong women
     May we know them
     May we be them.
     May we raise them.

I was raised by very strong women.  It also reminds me of the saying, "Women are like tea bags.  You don't know how strong they are until you put them in hot water."

I think, at least hope, I have been a strong role model for my daughter and sons.  Our boys need to see strong women so they appreciate them and understand them. 

I have raised a very strong and independent daughter.  She's 24 and amazes me every single day with her drive and sweet heart.

This charm came in today. 

In the spirit of women breaking glass ceilings and raised to be tough I designed this charm.  It is a "princess" shoe breaking a glass ceiling and has the hashtag #noprincesshere.  I think it is a strong symbol of what women have done through history, are accomplishing today, and will do in the future.

Being strong doesn't mean being a bitch or having no appreciation of or respect for men. Strong women can be good mothers, successful in the workforce, and still cheer on their kids at the ballpark or make the class brownies.  We are resilient, we are fun, and we can speak our mind.

This is the listing for the necklace in my Etsy shop with the new charm on a Stainless Steel chain.  I will be making more pieces with it, I just got this one done today.  Oh, and being strong also means being easy on ourselves when our plates are full and we know we are doing the best we can.  Just because we are capable of doing it all doesn't mean we have to all the time.
