A Valentine for Working Daughters

Macro photography of defocused Lights and glitter hearts

Here’s to the working daughters.*

The caregivers. The nurses. The taxi drivers.

The ones who take the call in the middle of the night.

The ones who take on the toughest job.

She wants to be a daughter, a child, but she shoulders the weight of the world.

Love her, second guess her, admire her, or judge her.

But what you should do is support her.

Because she is glue.

She holds it all together.

And she may not know how she’s doing; she may have lost her perspective.

But she hasn’t lost her way, and she makes all the difference.

With a nod and an apology to Jack Kerouac or Steve Jobs or the advertising team behind the Think Different campaign.
