Happy Galentine's Day!

Here’s to strong women 
May we know them 
May we be them 
May we raise them. 

What is Galentine’s Day? 

Observed on February 13, the day before Valentine's Day, Galentine's Day celebrates platonic friendships, usually among women. It was created by the character Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler), on the TV series Parks and Recreation as a day exclusively for women. 

Specifically it's the day when she and her female friends leave their husbands or boyfriends or empty houses to have breakfast together and celebrate one another. 
A fake holiday? Maybe. But a fun one! As Amy says…“It’s only the best day of the year!” 

So, who will you celebrate with? Who is the wind beneath your wings? 

Tops for me: 

My 101 year old mom Kitty… kind, generous, hard-working and my model in all things baby-taming! 

my friend Maria with my mom Kitty

my sisters… 2 here and 2 passed over, all ever loved 

The sisters Charbonneau

my daughters, teachers in all things that matter...

with my daughters Abby and Marya

my pals…writing sisters, school chums, fellow women’s club members, library boards and other fellow servers in our community.


writing pals and sisters...

school chums...

          How rich I am in tremendous women…
I hope you are too!
