Who are the women in your life?
Today is Mary Ward’s International Women’s Day… a day to celebrate and appreciate the women in your life. It can be something as elaborate as cake and flowers or something as simple as just saying ‘I love you’. It’s a day where you notice every female person in your life and you give thanks to God that they exist.
During lunch, we’re going to be giving out cake to everyone in the school to celebrate. We’re going to be focusing on all the positives women are… the positives that women bring out… the positives that women achieve. We’re going to remember all of our heroes, ones from the past or people from right now.
We’re going to be happy that we know women who are awesome and amazing and we’re going to love them for it.
So come celebrate the women in your life, and do it not just because it’s International Women’s Day… you’re going to appreciate your mom and your sister, and your grandmother and your friends simply because you love them.
Thank you for the women in our lives. Thank you for making them love us even when we’re not the most likeable.
Today, we will look around us, and we will open our eyes to see… to appreciate... all the women in our lives. We’re going to celebrate our mommies, our annoying sisters, our little cousins, our teachers, our aunts, our grandmothers and our friends.
We’re going to do it not just because it’s International Women’s Day. We’re going to do it because we should always celebrate and appreciate the women in our lives. We’re going to give them a hug, we’re going to say ‘I love you’… or, we just say ‘thanks’.
Lord, thank you for giving us such amazing, courageous, patient, funny, supporting and lovely fantastic people. We are never going to take it for granted ever again and we will remember it everyday.
Amen.Also. I went to Loretto College church and the archbishop of Toronto... something Collins did the mass. He was fantastic and funny, and I would willingly go to church if he was hosting it.
