Not far as we need to go. But WOW! When I think about what things were like for us when I was a young woman in the 70's and 80's and what they're like today, I can honestly say "We've come a long way, baby"!
There's not much I can do to change the world. I'm not wealthy; I don't wield power; I don't have the ear of influential people.
But what I do have are daughters -- three young women that I raised; and a parade of young women that are entrusted to me for a season or two.

I try to teach them how beautiful they are; how valuable and unique and intelligent and able they are; to give them a sense of self-worth and family; to help them grow to be humble, kind, generous. And I try most of all to let them know how much they are loved.
Motherhood is probably the most important job in the world.
So, stand with me ladies and raise a glass -- a latte, a coke, a water bottle or a glass of chablis -- and smile!
And thank you for being my blogging buddies.
