Lenten Reflections #36
On this last night of Women’s History Month, let’s continue to honor women not just for a month…but always.
There is one thing my mom always told my sisters and me: “learn as much as you can…because nobody can take away your education”. In fact, she just told our son that today on Face Time. Mom always wanted to make sure we were able to take care of ourselves, have a career and be independent. Dad wanted the same, he just hoped we would all be independent and live on the same street.
Here is a compilation of some of the best quotes out there from the most notable women!
