Someone wise compared women to the tea that gets plunged into hot water…the hotter the water, the stronger she gets! As women, we shoulder a large load — family needs us, jobs depend on us, chores call to us, others pester us, daily “disasters” unnerve us. We “do it all” with grace and appreciation for our blessings, but sometimes it helps to let our feelings fly — to complain, give thanks and say “Are you kidding me?!”
In this program, we reflect on poetry written by and about women, share our stories and pull strength from one another. This gathering gives us permission to praise ourselves, laugh at ourselves, feel sorry for ourselves, and relish in our own strength, regardless of what life sends our way.
