Today is a GREAT day to celebrate women!! Women are amazing beings and we deserve to be celebrated every day, but today is our day! This day is global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women as well as to raise awareness about women’s equality.
Today, I want to give a very special shout out to the mothers of children with special needs. Why? Because these women also deserve to be recognized in a special way as well. Some of these special mothers are unable to work since they need to spend their days as a caretaker, some spend their days as a taxi service running their children to appointments and and therapies and some have to work in order to pay for the care their children need. The job of any of these mothers can be a lonely one and I want you to know that I SEE YOU. You are not alone and you are just as amazing as any other woman! Your role is a special one and not one that everyone is capable of doing. Remember, you are not alone, you are doing the best you know and you are appreciated!! Not every day is a good day, but my challenge for you is to make today a GREAT day!
I also want to acknowledge this day for women WITH special needs themselves! There are so many women out there that have special needs and have gone on to do great things. There are so many successful businesses that are being run with women with Down Syndrome, Autism, etc. The opportunities are endless and strong women everywhere are making the world a better place.
When women support women, great things happen! Let’s do this!
