I am strong as steel.

I will surprise you.

I can make dinner, unload the dishwasher,

brainstorm for an article and help my child study for a test all at the same time.

I am a soft place to land.


I have stretch marks and an untoned tummy –

I am my own beautiful.

I am not wonder woman… I am me

and that is enough.

I will fight for those I love.

I am multidimensional.

I am a partner.

I am becoming.

I am passionate.

I am made in the image of God.

I will write my own story.

Women before me have led the way

to where we are now

and I join hands with those I walk with

today to make

tomorrow better

for our daughters and sons.

I am woman.
