The Reluctant Mermaid

one woman unwilling to swim in the same direction as the others


Real Women Wear Ruffles

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
...Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me."
~Maya Angelou

I would like to thank my beautiful, phenomenal sister in law Kelly for taking the time to share this with me. Today, I will not be ruffled by my feelings of inadequcy. Today I will be ruffled instead by some hot fushia.
