Tomorrow is my favorite day…. V-Day.
It’ll be the fourth birthday of my favorite Valentine girl, Eva. The daughter of two of my best friends. She’s delightful and fiery and already, I envy her curls. Her smile can make your whole week!
It’ll be not just Valentine’s Day– but Feb. 14 re-claimed by Eve Ensler to stand up for women. At noon tomorrow, all over the world women will run out of their jobs and into the streets to dance– to celebrate our triumph over Patriarchy, over abuse, and over anyone who tries to tell us that we’re not all goddesses. Because we are.
Here’s a video to explain, maybe you can find a One Billion Rising V-Day event near you:
Last year, I was enchanted watching men with struggle against the wind with heart-shaped mylar balloons on Valentine’s Day. Tomorrow, I’m going to buy one for myself, because that would make me happy. 🙂 The biggest one I can find!
I’ll leave you with that note of hope, and see you after Lent is over. 🙂
