Today for Women’s Day, I salute all the women who made me, positive and negative (because, let’s be honest, that middle-school bully had a pretty big impact on my life and so did that bad-influence friend we won’t mention), and all the women who made them.

Mother and grandmothers and aunts and cousins, friends and enemies and ones who went from one to the other. Sunday School teachers and Girl Scout leaders and that second-grade teacher that let me read in the back of the classroom; (1/2)

the art teacher who really tried and the bosses who taught me how to be part of a workforce. Friends! Friends who have good advice (and friends with bad advice) and co-workers who made me go out and socialize.

I salute you.
