(S) SHE (#AtoZChallenge 2019)

She is elegance
She is beauty
She is enigma
She is sublime
Symbol of endurance
Epitome of love
Sign of ultimate sacrifice

She is nature
She is nurturer
She is supreme 
She is divine
I bow to thee
I bow to SHE!

I want to thank all the women who have played a crucial role in my life.  
My Mother carried me in her womb and gave me life. She has been my constant critic and guide.
My grandmothers have looked after me and nurtured me when my mom was still completing her medical studies.
My maids in kindergarten who cleaned me with smile whenever I was soiled.
My teachers in school who have taught me language and other subjects. I would not have been literate without them.
My friends with whom I have enjoyed life as a carefree soul.
My warden in hostel who was strict but also very kind and reasonable.

I want to show my appreciation - 
To all the women who have been playing their role so well
To all the women who forgo their dreams and desires for their family
To all the women whose role is never appreciated by many
To all the women who live in anonymity for bringing forth humanity...

Let me know about a woman(women) who has(have) been your constant support.  Or share about a woman who has left an everlasting impression on you because of her sheer grit and determination.

[I appreciate the complimenting role that Men (father, brother, grandfather, husband) play in this world. But I will keep that post for some other day.]

(These AtoZ Challenge posts pertain to my thought process, physical and mental changes, stress levels & mechanisms to cope, perspective, journey and experience as a first-time mother who has yet not delivered her baby.)

  1. What a lovely tribute of appreciation!

  2. They sure do go majorly underappreciated!
    Good tribute here.
    I don't really have any exceptionally strong women in my personal life that I could look up to. Even my mom got ill when I was still in school, and passed away soon after I moved to college.
    But yeah, there are a lot of public figures who inspire me.

  3. Beautiful tribute to 'She' without whom no world is complete!

  4. Beautiful tribute. I'm going to say that my late mother has been my biggest strength in this journey to reach where I am. The next would be my mother-in-law who has been extremely sweet and tried her level best to be more like a mother to me

  5. My mom had been my greatest well-wisher as well as my greatest critic. My childhood girl-friends with whom I am in constant touch everyday on Whatsapp liven up my day. Some of my teachers were wonderful. I would thank a KG teacher of my son who took great care of my introvert son. the list is endless

  6. Amen!
    I am lucky to have had many female storytelling mentors, and also female storytellers who inspire me even though we have never met :)

  7. My mom was my greatest support, and I still miss her even now sometimes for she trusted me in every decision i took. Another wonderful women in my life was a religious sister who inspired and motivated me to continue education despite my failures. I owe a lot to my women friends who are like my extended family. I feel a sense of gratitude to all these and many more lovely women who shared their stories to enable and empower me.
