This week’s topic was suggested by the List Master Stasha at The Good Life. List 10 things women to commemorate the International Women’s Day last March 8.
Ado at The Momalog, made our heads churn with trying to identify the 10 women in history whom she admire. I was only able to correctly identify Julia Butterfly Hill (thanks to Ado’s previous post), Princess Di and Audrey Hepburn.
So pressure, pressure.
Then finally I decided on this.
Friends, meet and greet the 10 Beautiful Women in My Life:
1. Sharon Georgette. Bestfriend. The witty-comeback queen. Walking encyclopedia. Sky high IQ. Staunch supporter. From her I learned that the bonds made by the heart is the most enduring kind.
2. Dionedylle Melody. Bestfriend. Officemate. The girl with the sweetest smile I know. From her I learned to have grace and beauty under pressure.
3. Stella Marie. Sister. My sister not by blood but by bond. Bubbly. Honest. She reminds me of myself at times and I nurture and value the special big sister/small sister relationship we have and more. From her I learned to be more bubbly and open.
4. Sis. Rose Ann, OSB. Spiritual adviser. Friend. From her I learned selfless service and real active alive faith.
5. Nerissa. My Stepmom. She redefined the word accepting and compassion. She accepted us (my twin sister and I) with open arms and heart. From her I learned that love doesn’t put labels.
6. Rosalinda. My Mother-In-Law. To her I am eternally grateful, for raising such a good and loving son. From her I learned temperance and tranquility.
7. Epifania. My Auntie. Educator. Charity-cases magnet. She can’t help but extend her time, money, heart to those who are in need. From her I learned my love for reading and so much more.
8. Nanette Lyn. My Twin Sister. I will always have someone who will have my back no matter what.
9. Teofania. My Mama. Fashionista. Fighter. She gave birth to us at 22, unwed. Her life’s adventures are tv series worthy. From her I learned to be strong and brave.
10. Presentacion. My Grandma. To her I owe my life. I miss you so much Lola. Thank you for all the love, the support, the care. I am what I am today because of you. My earliest memories were that associated with you. You, making sure I have a blanket on when it is cold. You, buying me a gift when I placed first honor in class, you, bringing us to summer vacations at the place you grew up in. Those were just some of the best memories I have of you and thinking about it now makes me cry. I missed you so so much. Wherever you are now, I hope you are happy. I love you.
How about you? Who are the 10 beautiful women in your life?
