Brave – Warrior

When I think of bravery, women always come to mind.

Women are brave in caring for their loved ones; brave in how they carry out their work; brave in love and war;  brave in transitioning the end of life. Women are the greatest creation in humanity.

Celebrate all women in your life! Learn about how Women’s History Month came into existence (click on link) and Happy Women’s History Month!

Work in Progress is shown below: part of the small and large scale goddesses I’m working on.
