"Strength, Grace, Power, were a few of the words we used today to describe being a Woman! Ladies, never forget how important your role is as a woman! Instead of hating, lets build each other up! Today we truly celebrated Womanhood! Thanks ladies for attending the 2009 Celebrating Womanhood Retreat! See you next year!"
Quote from the Facebook profile of Liletta Thompson, (a.k.a "Big Sis") Host and Producer of the local cable talk show, Big Sis & Company-Focused On The Issues
Lastly, this retreat was only for a few hours, but it was MY time. It was MY few hours away from the pageant drama, the chaotic job, an email inbox with several emails needing responses, doctoral classwork, my cell phone ringing off the hook, and stress! I left all of my stresses behind and enjoyed a few hours that refreshed me and prepared me for the New Year!
I’ve worked hard this year- this day was for me!
