On International Women’s Day, i am going to slightly adapt a speech i gave yesterday !
For all i that i am, and for all that i have become this is my thank you :
Margret Thatcher said : “Being powerful is like being a lady, if you have to say it, you aren’t it” and for me being a lady is being powerful
Thankyou to my dad who gave me wings ( to dream and to soar)
Mom for giving me roots, always keeping me grounded
To my sisters for being my guidebook to life, for being my worst critics, and my best friends
Thankyou to my in laws. My father in law who has always been there for me, my sister-in-laws, the kind i know everyone wishes for, but is rarely lucky to have.
Thankyou to my teachers, for making me the woman i am today
My friends for always believing in me
The Fia for pushing me to put good food out on the table
Thankyou to everyone i work with, if i am being recognised today, its your fault
Finally to the men who work the hardest to make me a better woman :
My son, who pushes me everyday to be a better a person, a better woman and a better mother
& to My husband: nothing… nothing in my life makes sense or matters or would be possible without you.
Happy International Women’s Day !
Hope all you men out there do something special for all the ladies in your life !
Until the show is over and the fat lady sings.
