Here’s to the ladies
The, smart, fierce, brave and kind
On a holiday about love
They are the first that come to mind.
They are not often thanked
For what they sacrifice and give
For all of the joy and love and the reminders to really live.
They take care of the babies
And do an insane amount whether they work or stay at home
They clean and fold clothes and pay bills while fantasizing about Rome.
They are strong and relentless
They put in full days before they uber the kids and pack the lunch
They deserve the world or a massage or at least a little ladies brunch.
They are the glue
They hold life from falling apart
I’m grateful that the tribe I hold dear are true works of art.
There should be more days to thank them
But for now, this is a start.
Please move over Valentine, there is a new saint in town
It is high time we celebrate the ladies that never let us down
Here’s to the dear Galentines,
There is no need for chocolates, we will take our brunch with a crown.
So thank a lady who has made a difference in your life
Whether a friend, a sister, a mother or a wife.
We all deserve to be seen
That much is truer than true
So be a gem and thank the women that make you, you.
Raise a glass to those who show up time after time
Here’s to the warriors among us we are lucky enough to call Galentines.
