As I write this, my 21-year-old daughter is at a car race in Alabama with her Team – Her Team of mechanical engineers…and I wonder – What in the world led this young woman to be so motivated to become an engineer in the Automotive world?? Well, although she isn’t actually employed yet, she is working in an industry that she finds very exciting and thought provoking and she says – I have been surrounded by strong women in my life, from teachers to family and friends and they have achieved all kinds of amazing things and I just want to set my own path.

As we celebrate Moms everywhere this month, I salute All Strong Women that have set their own path to become motivators to your children, siblings, and friends. It’s an amazing privilege to be a woman.  We have been given talents and strengths that are too numerous to count and yet we are soft and tender. We are powerhouses that run businesses AND families.  We really do “bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan” and we are beautiful as we do it. How great are women!

Sure, some days we don’t feel like getting out of bed, let alone wrangle with the laundry, the dog or the husband, but we do – and we do it bravely. So, here’s to you – The beautiful and brave, the strong and successful, the wonderful Women of the world. Take a moment and celebrate YOU- and all your amazingness.

“Here’s to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.” – Unknown
