I'm Every Woman



Okay, ladies let's admit it  . . .
We are awesomely created. . . 
but we are also (sometimes . . . admit it) 
very moody.

We are the Queens of our castles.



We are fun loving.



We also cry a lot . . . but that's okay :)



Sometimes our days are about as delightful and happy as they can be . . .


Other times we just feel a bit blue . . . and don't even know why.



We have powers that we don't even realize.

We are brave,
We are strong,
&
We are LOVED and very worthy of LOVE.


And above all
WE ARE AMAZING!!!
 Yes we are . . . 
Isn't it wonderful to be a woman!

Go visit your mirror and say,
I'm Amazing.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. Hi Val, yep, I think a good cry sometimes does a world of good.
      It is the gals that keep it bottled up that suffer.

    1. Hello Dee, "girl powder" is the slogan of my granddaughters. Whenever they get ready to try some new sport or to help out at home with a tough and dirty chore, they go into girl power mode . . . I love it. They are only 5 and 6 years old, but they have such a positive energy, and they believe that fear is just something that needs to be faced head-on :) When I'm around them I feel 15 years younger (that's in the mornings . . . by the end of the day . . . I'm wiped out). That's why we have our kids when were young, LOL.
      Have a great weekend.

  30. Hi Connie,

    Oh, I LOVE all your girls! Very inspirational post - for sure! I just posted about my wonderful blog candy! I've had so much fun looking through the Somerset magazine (which I didn't have) and the Get Real Greetings card book. There's lots of fun ideas in there - although I may tone a few down a bit! I love the handmade cards - thank you so much.

    Hugs,
    Kay
