I have memories that stretch back to being a little girl, in which I remember being so happy to have been born female.

I didn’t give much thought to whether other people felt this way, or even if there was a majority or minority on the subject. It’s that I felt like I was part of a tight-knit group. Two sisters, a mom, four grandmothers, aunts, cousins, friends, and neighbors. The world can be challenging for women, though, in many ways. And I discovered that when I was older. I attended an all-women’s college and took many women’s history classes. I also studied Women in the Media. We are a fascinating bunch. I was raised by a strong woman who was raised by a strong woman who was raised by a strong woman, and so on. We have a long history in this country, and a history of longevity and boldness. I hope I’m carrying that torch.

And I know my super strong daughter is too.

I was heartened to read about Johnson & Johnson’s long commitment to the health and wellbeing of women and families, dating back to the late 1800s! Johnson & Johnson created Maternity Kits in the 1890s – which were filled with surgical products and easy-to-follow instructions that helped make childbirth and the first days of life safer for mother and baby.

Then, in 1897 Johnson and Johnson mass produced disposable sanitary napkins. These replaced the alternative homemade methods that women relied on. Johnson & Johnson continues this work today – working with organizations worldwide to provide women, children, and expectant mothers with the resources they need to live healthy lives. We all deserve that.

Johnson & Johnson has a dual commitment to public health education and high-quality products, and it shows! They’ve been at the forefront of healthcare for well over a century. Reading about their heritage is powerful for me.

It’s powerful for me as a granddaughter, a daughter, a wife and mother.

Have That Friday Feeling All Week Long With Tai Pei!

This is a sponsored blog; while the views expressed here were genuinely mine, consideration was paid to me by Tai Pei Food to review this product.

I don’t think I’ve ever had to tell you twice, or three times, how much I love Tai Pei Asian Cuisine.

And I remember the first time I bought it. I was at our local grocery store chatting with a friend in the frozen Asian food section of the freezer aisle and I must have been telling a particularly gripping story (to myself) because I backed up into the freezer case and that’s when I saw it. “I must have that now!” I shouted. By the way, my story was a funny story about Des starting kindergarten, but that’s no longer neither here nor there. I loved these flavors! I wanted to try every entrée.

And I eventually did.

Think about it. We all have our own brands of “busy.” I don’t think I’m unique in my zany life but we all balance our own schedules uniquely. For me, it’s working at home which is not the same as staying at home, and it makes the endless list of domestic and work tasks seem insurmountable. I juggle two businesses, two kids, two dogs, and even the cat and chickens – although they’re a lot easier in terms of daily routines than the kids and dogs. The doorbell is always ringing. The dishes are always piling up. And I have to do errands too. I’m a juggler! Like her! This isn’t me, but there are similarities for sure.
