Día de la Mujer

Yesterday, Nicaragua celebrated Día de la Mujer. March 8th is International Women's Day. I didn't know this...did you? International Women's Day originated as a socialist political event 100 years ago; and apparently, in 1977 the UN declared March 8th as a day of Women's Rights and International Peace. Regardless, in a country where the "machismo" culture is still is somewhat interesting that this day is observed. May there be true appreciation for the women of Nicaragua, women created in the image of God.

The kids celebrated at school. Andrew had to bring an extra snack to share with one of the girls in the class. Noah brought me home a little paper flower.

And, to all the women reading this...¡Feliz Día de la Mujer!...may you know that you are loved by God, your Creator.
