Being Female- A woman of the Earth

I was born a female of the species that scientist’s refer to as Homo sapiens – that’s us (people). It is estimated that roughly half of the population of people who reside on our planet are female.

Today I’m celebrating all that we are – we the women of the earth. As mothers, it is one of the very earliest things that all humans understand about women. Within a female womb the nourishing and growth of both males and females begins.

However, I strongly believe that being a mother is not what shapes women into who they are, but rather it is the very nature of how women think and feel that shapes the mothers they will become.

Most women are gentle, caring and nurturing but we are so much more than that. When people typecast us (females) into only the “mother” role they forget all the other attributes we so richly possess.

Like men we too are thinkers and doers and as responsible as they for the shaping of civilization. Today more than ever we are taking an ever increasingly active role in this, life’s great adventure.

So to every female on the planet – I applaud you all. For being brave, for being strong, for taking risks, for overcoming, repeatedly adversity, for continuing to fight for our right to be seen as equal to, for believing in ourselves and having the ability to be who we want to be, and for making, repeatedly an amazing difference on this planet we reside on. A woman in the very true sense and meaning of the word.

Today is Amelia Earhart’s birthday, I join in celebrating the spirit, vivacity and determination she displayed during the course of her amazing life. She is only one of many who have helped women realize what each of us are capable.

A few words in closing from a song by Helen Redding …”I am woman watch me grow, see me standing toe to toe as I spread my lovin’ hands across the land, but I’m still an embyro with a long, long way to go until I make my brother understand”…So way to go Amelia! Way to go – all the rest of us females, we can do this. We are doing this! Isn’t it wonderful. Celebrate today, being a woman.

  1. A wonderful post Penny – and lovely tribute to Ms. Eirhart too! I agree ~ women are complex creatures with limitless potential to expand in so many directions ~ in addition to being the Great Mothers and Nurturers that we are. You have summed it up beautifully here ~ Brava to you my friend and woman of the earth 🙂 – enjoyed much xo

  2. “It is the very nature of how women think and feel that shapes the mothers they will become.” Well said. Thank you for sharing your insights, as alway!

  3. It is always nice to come to your blog. There always is a surprise waiting. Something just the right size and always seems to fit. The words on the page remain here in your blog, but I always take a little bit with me. 🙂

  4. Eve was created not from Adam’s head to rule and not from his feet to be ruled – but from the rib and close to his heart… to walk side by side. Thanks for honoring women! God did and does honor us… ~ Wendy ( We are the icing on the cake.)
