A Woman is Like a Tea Bag . . . . {#TuesdayTen}

I have been fortunate to have some wonderful women in my life. That list would have to start, of course, with my mom. Now as a mother myself, I have a much better understanding  of what she experienced raising me. Now, we are not just mother and daughter, but friends and confidants. 

I would also have to include my mother in law on that list. We have always gotten along well and she has supported me in my past career as a teacher and always as a mom.

There are also my grandmothers. I was very close to my paternal grandmother, MamMaw, and I am reminded of her every day on some way. I never met my maternal grandmother because she passed away before I was born, but I know she still had a great impact on my life through my mom.

There have been plenty of other women in my life - teachers, coaches, other relatives, and friendships that have blossomed and then faded. 

Today, in honor of March being Women's history month and in honor of all the women who have taught me so much throughout my life, I though I would share with you some quotes made by women about women. 

"Any woman who understand the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country."
~Margaret Thatcher

"Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away."
~Barbara de Angelis

"Well-behaved women seldom make history."
~Marilyn Monroe

"If you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman."
~Margaret Thatcher

"I'd much rather be a woman than a man. Women can cry, they can wear cute clothes, and they're the first to be rescued off sinking ships."
~Gilda Radner

"Your clothes should be tight enough to show you're a woman, but loose enough to show you're a lady."
~Marilyn Monroe

"Nothing makes a woman more beautiful that the belief that she IS beautiful."
~Sophia Loren

"The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul."
~Audrey Hepburn

A couple bonus quotes that don't apply to only women, but they were said by women and I like them! 

"Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world."
~Lucille Ball

"Don't compromise yourself. You're all you've got."
~Janis Joplin
