Five on Friday

1.  Quote:

2.  It's International Women's Day!  Here's a great photo tapestry that shows women around the world - what amazing pictures and there are links if you'd like to check the photographers.

3.  Do you know about Kiva?  It's a great place to support people around the world with micro-lending loans as they seek to provide for their families and alleviate poverty.  My daughter gave me a gift card to spend there last year for Mother's Day and I've been a big fan ever since.  Since then I've given several as gifts myself and the original loan that I made to a woman in Pakistan so she could buy a sewing machine, has already been partially repaid.  I invite you to check them out - they have received Charity Navigator's highest rating.

4.  So excited to be spending some time this weekend at a women's retreat with my sister!  It's been a long time since we had a full day and then some together, just the two of us.

5.  Photo of the week:
