Pop Culture would have it that women are supposed to be sexual beings. And we are. But we were made for so much more! Our feminine graces, our maternal instincts, our soft curves, our ability to heal, sooth, and calm … these gentle powers may not be valued in the eyes of the mainstream as “sexy,” or “cool,” … Forget them! Let’s be proud of what we were designed to be: Beautiful. Graceful. Helpers. Mothers. Friends. Caretakers. Healers. Peacemakers. Sisters. Daughters. Wives. Homemakers. Creators. Suppliers. Givers. Communicators. Liaisons. Lovers. Counselors. Promise Keepers. Guardians. Comforters. Beautifiers. Servants. Goddesses. Leaders.

Mary Stevenson Cassatt (May 22, 1844 – June 14, 1926) was an American painter and printmaker. She lived much of her adult life in France, where she first befriended Edgar Degas and later exhibited among the Impressionists. Cassatt often created images of the social and private lives of women, with particular emphasis on the intimate bonds between mothers and children.
