"We are so lucky to be women and those men are so lucky to know us."
Marianne Williamson from A Woman's Worth
Today these women sat around our kitchen table and ate cookies and made each other laugh and cry. I feel so grateful tonight to know these women and so many more smart, funny, beautiful, loving, exuberant, fun, nurturing and impressive women. As I look back on the grandmothers, aunts, teachers, bosses, co-workers, classmates, friends, acquaintances and random other women that have helped me along the way I feel proud to be part of this group. More so, I am so grateful that Lorelai will have strong women to watch and consult as she grows. I am also, in so many ways, grateful for the men that have brought us together and helped us learn about ourselves. And given us a lot of material for laughter!
