Thanks to the woman who taught me it was okay to have a family and a career.
Thanks to the woman who impressed upon me, the importance of a good education (never mind that it was so I could pay someone to clean up since I’m a slob).
Thanks to the woman who did her best all the time, even when the cards were stacked high and against her.
Thanks to the woman who fought fiercely for her family but prior to that, fought fiercely for her country.
Thanks to one of the many veterans we honor today.
