Mothers day will soon be here and thinking about that makes me think of all the strong women in my family. I have to say that in every aspect there are strong women of all sorts Many of them were not able to receive a college education rather they received an education in life. My mothers mom was a strong lady in religion, strength in raising her children, loved nature and loved being married to a farmer. She held her head high doted on her grandchildren and made her life both personal and that others saw to be as good as she could get it. She played piano, sang sweet gospel and was just a lovely Christian lady. My other grandmother was a bit different while she to was married to a farmer as well she could run they also had a business. I saw her work hard and long hours and always had time for her grandchildren. My own mother is a strong woman and I believe that I admire her even more as I have watched her grow after my father passed on. She was always a strong lady but through tears, fears and self doubt she has become a woman that is strong. Without these three ladies I do not know where I would be, who I would be or what I would be doing. They kept me out of a lot of trouble, always showed love as well as discipline to me and I will always cherish them.
The She Colors My Day is built on love as well. The love a mother who had breast cancer and that of a daughter who would watch her go. A mother named Annette who was dying of breast cancer wanted to leave a memory for those that she loved and those that loved her back. Annette would be leaving four daughters so she created a c.d. of her and her daughters singing to family and friends. Annette's friend, Christina Carlino would pick up the torch and create the act behind She Colors My Day. She Colors My Day is a celebration of the never ending bonds of mothers and daughters and one that has embarked upon a global journey to create for a cure. The Susan G. Komen foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's/ Women's Cancer Research Group benefit from this great celebration
