Going with the theme of women for the day, I began thinking about how amazing it is that women give birth.
It is the ultimate spiritual and sacrificial act filled with love, wonder and growth. It is only recently that I saw the beauty in using your body (vessel) as a portal to expel a new spirit into the world (or possibly an old spirit depending on what you believe). To give your life to helping another spirit grow; shaping and teaching, is a beauty that nothing else can surpass (at least in my mind).
Thank you Mom for giving me life (and Dad for pitching in the sperm).
