Honoring Our Mothers: Affirmations for International Women’s Day

Who I am and Whose I am

Today is International Women’s Day, and the world is celebrating us. This entire month, people will acknowledge the contributions that women have made throughout history. There are many extraordinary figures, but none as wonderful as the one we each call “mother”. Some may say that I’m missing the point. To them I say, without our mothers, none of us would be here. “I know who I am and whose I am” is honoring a woman that fought cancer at a time when it was an automatic death sentence for more than a decade. Each affirmation in this piece is a testament to the strength and courage passed down from a strong woman to another strong woman.
