Happy Birthday, Husband…

15 Feb

I know this is a bit self-indulgent but I wanted to wish my husband a Happy Birthday today.  He shares a birthday with Susan B. Anthony and Galileo.  I am always in awe of my husband, for he possesses so many talents and attributes that I lack.

He is wholehearted.  He shares his whole heart with me, which ties into his amazing courage.  He is able to move through life with optimism and without fear or panic, even during times of distress or injustice, Robert moved forward with the same love of life.  He has an amazing capacity for joy, which ties into his ability to be vulnerable.  He dances in our kitchen without being self-conscious.  He puts strange hats and holiday bows on top of his head.

There are so many reasons I love Robert, but today I love him for his whole heart, his courage, and his vulnerability.

Women’s History: February 15

Pioneer for Women's Rights

Happy Birthday, Susan B. Anthony.  Anthony is was one of the most visible and prominent voices in the Suffrage Movement. She and Elizabeth Cady Stanton worked tirelessly for women to gain the right to vote in the United States. Unfortunately, Anthony did not live long enough to see the passage of the 19th Amendment. Anthony, like many Quakers of her time, was also an outspoken abolitionist. Anthony’s work and friendship with Amelia Bloomer, (some credit with the creation of bloomers) led to a lifelong friendship and working partnership with Cady Stanton. To learn more about Susan B.

Happy Birthday, Sarah Fuller. Fuller was an advocate and educator for the deaf.
