Yesterday was International Women's Day.
Often throughout the day I thought of strong women,
women that touched me, and women around me.
Lek Chailert of the Elephant Nature Park in Thailand is
one of those women.
I was so honored to meet her a few years ago and to
follow her work on Facebook.
She is an amazing woman who not only rescues elephants
and has made a difference in their lives, but rescues whatever animal
comes across her path, even dogs and cats.
Also having had the opportunity to watch these women
arrive at a tea field in Taiwan, I was touched by their dedication
as they shared time together singing and chatting as they so
beautifully picked the tea that I drink.
We are blessed by some amazing women in each of our lives.
From our mother's, sister's, daughter's, dear friends,
or women that just briefly cross our path.
I am thankful for those women.
They delight my soul.
They make me what I am today.
They are to be cherished.
A few years ago I did a series here on Strong Women.
