We are here because a woman loved. A woman felt. A woman laid herself bare. We are nourished because a woman cared for us, a woman sacrificed for us. We continue as a human race because women make a choice to bring life into the world. The sheer strength of a woman can be found in her enduring heart, her undeniable strength, the quiet knowing of her mind, the fervent curiosity, effortless sensuality, and mostly her uncanny ability to rise from the ashes. There is nothing more beautiful than a woman finding her freedom, surrendering to the callings of her soul whatever they may be. Innovators, literary masters, engineers, mothers, poets, designers, biologists, herbalists...each of us unique, each of us navigating a world that has devalued us since the beginning of time. I bow to you. I bow to the light that radiates from the core of your being. Women, with all our curves and edges, our bright eyes, and our cunning minds... you all are a masterpiece.
Today a group of us would like to gift one of you an array of goods and services curated by Michelle Nicole Gerrard. This incredible woman is a poet, artist, chef and so much more. She has a gift for creating community, it just comes naturally for her. Michelle asked each of us to share our stories about becoming a women entrepreneur. I hope you enjoy!
