It’s International Women’s Day and women around the world are getting distinct attention by commemorating historical events that led to the celebration of Women’s Day. Though the celebration was associated with political awareness, it’s now becoming an occasion to express the significance of women in the society in general – mothers, teachers, girlfriends, aunts and more. In some countries, the custom of giving gifts and flowers to women on this day is still prevalent.
The only inspiring quote on women that comes to my mind is, “Behind every man’s success is a woman”, and for whatever reason a woman contributes the success of a man is certainly substantial. But the true essence of a woman is of her dignity and pride being a wife and a mother, her role in the family is greater than a man’s conquest.
Incidentally, today is also the birthday of my bestfriend, Nona. Our friendship has blossomed into a sister-like relationship when we were in the third grade. We’ve been used to long distance contacts since we graduated high school, that everytime we meet, tears flows and long talks would lead us to memory lane. The picture below was taken last year after not having seen each other for almost eight years.
