“Women are like tea bags. You never know how strong they are until they’re in hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt.
When I thought about this quote – I was almost overwhelmed by all the thoughts, memories and stories that came to mind of women in hot water showing their strength, courage, resolve, determination, inner power, love, care and ‘warmth’.
The women I would like to honour in this post: my grandmother May – formidable! My mother Nicole, as my brother explained to me…”she rules with her heart”. My sister Nina, R.I.P. you were never meant to be long for this world. My sister Nat…we were kidnapped together, they hurt you, they tried to damage you for life, we survived the ordeal but I remember what they did to you – you clawed your way out of that darkness, you saved others and you will always be my hero… DB
If you want to honour women you know who were dipped in “hot water” put it here…
