We are a who, not a what. 

We are passion, not emotion. 

We are precious, not fragile. 

We are yours to love, not to own.

 

We are more than your limited imagination and temporary play thing. 

 

We are words. 

 

We are adjectives like beauty, bold, worthy, fearfully and wonderfully made. We are verbs like love and life, hugs and kisses...forgiveness. 

 

We are nouns - PERSONS, to have and to hold, not PLACES to seek that which you can't find in yourself or THINGS you collect and save for a rainy day.

 

We are grace, even when we are tired of repeating ourselves. 

 

We are the safe space you don't always appreciate but that we are always willing to be. We are givers...of so very much and takers of so little. 

 

We are woman, and we are enough.
