her consolation

She is humble but blessed

Calm and reserved
For she knows her worth
It springs forth even when she's not acknowledged
She sacrifices all, gives all, bears all and even endures all
As she awaits the prize of her pain
For it's is what she lives for and draws joy
Even when tomorrow seem blank
The past pain is forgotten
But replaced by wonder
As she holds her child
For what seems like months of pain came with a life time of joy

This is her consolation

Happy mother's day...

This story was written for World Pulse’s Girls Transform the World Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring girls greater access to education which will transform their lives, their families, and communities. The Girls Transform Campaign elicits insightful content from young women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as women, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Mothers are our greatest gifts

Words alone cannot appreciate them but through fighting for what we believe in, we make our mom's proud of us

their worth

That's true. We cannot really quantify their worth.

Thank you my sister

To Know her Worth

I wish every woman could know her worth. Then they could stand strong when they are told they can't or they shouldn't and say "that's not true, I deserve opportunity, not restrictions". I hope the doors of opportunity are opened wide for you. I enjoyed your ability with words.

Thank you Diane. You are an inspiration.
You are right. It takes a lot to be a woman and so we must take pride in it.

I am proud being one.

Her Consolation

Thanks for your beautiful words. My son turned 13 today and I thank god for sending him to me. I wish I had such eloquent words to describe the experience as you have.
