This month we're celebrating inspirational women to mark International Women's Day, 8th March.  Not only will we look to those women who are on the public stage, doing great works for charity, making their pledge for equality, but also those women who are closer to home - the friends, family members, and acquaintances who touch us directly with acts of kindness and selfless deeds.

So many women inspire me every day from Mums on the playground raising families, managing homes and running businesses; friends who have dealt with complex situations in their lives, and have come through the other side with vigour; and business acquaintances who juggle work life balance effortlessly, and deliver such value to the community.

My inspirational woman is even closer to home, I nominate my Grannie! She inspires me because she's about to enter her 10th decade (she turns 90 in April) and attends philosophy classes and theatre groups, travels, is fashionable & thrifty, and is the most well read person I know.  She has lived through a World War, The Great Depression, become a widow, raised three children whilst working & has life-long friends many of whom have departed over the recent years, and yet still to this day she makes new friends.   She reminds me that life is long, telling me these are my 'wonder years' and to make the most of every day.  This picture is of her and my eldest son celebrating their birthday last year, which they share.
