Today is International Women's Day-celebrated on 8th March annually.
As some of you know I am involved with a local womens group (WOW-Women Of the World) and we meet every Fri morning.
We are celebrating tomorrow by sharing skills within the group. My friend and I are giving a Reiki demonsatration. Others are displaying art/crafts etc.
The theme of this year is encouraging/supporting young women. Earlier this month we held a coffee morning (which I was unable to attend) and raised £400 to assist a local 17 year old girl going back to her original school in Nepal (shes there NOW) helping them get basic school supplies.
Today I am spending the day with my daughter who was 19 yesterday.
What I really wanted to say was, women-be pround of who you are and celebrate. Men-show appreciation for the ladies in your life (just a suggestion!)
Happy IWD to all
