INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN

Hello lovelies,

Happy mother's day to all gorgeous mums out there! I hope you all get spoiled today by your loved ones.

To celebrate Mother's Day, I asked some of my Etsy buddies about famous women whom they found inspiring.

The answers are pretty amazing ...
From a German nun to a quadriplegic woman ... these women are not just beautiful, but they are courageous, talented and inspiring.


"A woman whom I found inspiring is Golda Meir. She was the first female prime minister of Israel. She was very active as one of the founders of the Jewish state, but always behaved like a regular woman. She was never overdressed or put on make up. She rather looked like anyone's grandmother. That's what made her so loved by everyone."

"I really admire Joni Eareckson. She had a diving accident at the age of 17 and became paralyzed. Yet her disability didn't stop her. She overcame anger and depression through her faith in God. She is now a Christian author (she's written over forty books), mouth painting artist, a singer (she's recorded several musical albums) and an advocate for the disabled."

"I really respect Maria Clementine Martin, a German nun-turned-entrepreneur from the 18th Century. She spent many years in a monastery close to where I live now and acquired great knowledge of herbal medicine. She invented the "Melissa Spirit" and it is still a best-selling product in pharmacies to this day! It is used for all types of ailments, such as muscle pain, headaches, insomnia etc. and most people keep a bottle in their medicine cabinet! She's a true self-made woman - quite unusual for that time!"

"One women who inspires me is Michelle Obama. Her grace and elegance are a few things that describe her. But her commitment to her family is truly inspiring. Hard to carry out when you are a first lady! She also has an unending commitment to our military families (which is very close to my heart).

"Women who inspire me are those with positive energy, big smile, creative in any way, people who love life and enjoy the precious moments in their life."

  6. What an awesome group! It's been a few months now after Mother's and International Women's day, but the spirit of those two events still live on, hopefully for the rest of the year. I know two, and the other two women I'm getting to know better right now. All their stories are special and very inspiring, and we see many more women parallel their achievements. Thank you so much for sharing that awesome post. Wishing you all the best!
