What it means to be a working Woman: it is her Career.

As I was looking for the perfect items for a client recently, in an antique store, I found a couple of old black and white photos of women either going to work or doing work, and I thought about how us women have always had a career. The moms that I called Granny or Grandmother, mom, even my now sisters and friends, are beautiful examples of women that are not or were not scared to get their fingers dirty and do what is needed for the people around them. You may be shy in front of people, or only comfortable crunching numbers, or staying at home with kids, but most women I know will step up to the plate and do what needs to be done and worry about if it was good enough. That is what makes us who we are, we may be shy, but find courage and determination and desire when we want to bad enough. What is it, if not that spirit, makes a woman travel alone to another country, to run a business, or to stay awake all night making sure that children are okay? It is the career of Love! That is what we live for, no matter what we fill our time with it is that career of Love that pushes and drives all that we do.
