On this day it is customary for men to give the women in their lives - mothers, grandmothers, wives, girlfriends, daughters, sisters, colleagues, etc - flowers and small gifts. In some countries in Europe it is also observed as an equivalent of Mother's Day, where children also give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers. In 1975, which had been designated as International Women’s Year, the United Nations gave official sanction to and began sponsoring International Women's Day. Now, it appears they are making a political statement, by giving creedence to women working, as in a socialist party.
In America, and I hope, everywhere else all over the World, Women are celebrated for the Beautiful and Special people that we are! Having been a career woman all my life, I appreciate the fact that I have the freedom to work, but also, being a wife and mother, it is really nice when others recognize and appreciate the liberty of the most important work of a woman's life as well- birthing and raising the children! Now I also can share that being a Nana, Grandmother, Matriarch is moving along the path to more important work- that of loving the children, no matter what, and passing on the wisdom of the ages- divine justice for a life well lived!
Celebrate and Honor at least ONE important Woman in your life today!
