My “Thank-You” to 20 Wonderful Women

When young, we have amazing vitality.

We endure trying times, hoping to meet our dreams.

Some roads lead to our power; others to suffering.

We learn to choose with care.

Later, we try to make sense of it all. By then, we have developed new skills.

From women we trust, we learn to see beauty around us, to stand in the center of our life, and go with flow.

We wish we could go back and thank those who helped.

This book is my “Thank you!” to 20 wonderful women, helping to heal our world.
