I've been searching for inspiration to write this post for the past few weeks. I might've written the first paragraph about 10 – 15 times, and then erased it slowly by pressing backspace. So I decided to start at the beginning…well, my beginning. (photo credit earth sky.org) Growing up I was daddy's little girl. I played games with my brothers and was very very mischievous…but to my dad I could do no wrong. What I loved the most about my dad was how he treated the women in his life. He treated his mother with love and respect, his sisters like princesses and my mother like a queen. He always showed my mother love and affection privately and publicly. Growing up I believed and thought all men were as good as my father. Why would I think otherwise? Due to medical requirements at the young age of seven I was sent to live with my grandparents in Canada and thus began my life in the west. I missed my family so much — especially my father. My father's love was replaced by four uncles and grandparents. Again I experienced love, kindness and respect at the hands of the men that continued to raise me. The most amazing thing I found about living in Canada or the west was how readily available news and information was. I learned so much about the world, politics and history. I blame my grandfather for turning me into a news junkie. In all my research and news obsession, I began to notice a discrepancy in how women were treated versus

Thanks to the Women's Wing Organization , Christmas came early this year for a bunch of kids. For 10 years, the organization has reached out to low income families with parents who are ill or incarcerated or can't provide for whatever reason. "To see all of this that people have done, this is overwhelming, overpowering," says Audrey Gibbs, a grandmother. Gibbs' daughter recently passed away, after a battle with cancer, leaving her the guardian of her four grandchildren. And she's battling cancer, too. John Wall of the Washington Wizards and other volunteers delivered bags full of gifts to Gibbs' home. "My goal is not just to play basketball," Wall says. "You've got to do stuff off the court to make things better. And it's just great for these kids to have a great Christmas with clothes and toys to play with." "All this, nothing will replace the loss of their mother," Gibbs says. "It won't replace it for me, but it's gonna ease the pain, it's gonna ease it a lot." Gibbs' family is just one of many receiving a helping hand this holiday season from the Women's Wing Organization. At nearby Marshall Elementary School, Christmas also came early. Whether children have a parent serving time in prison or are fighting illness or simply can't provide much at this time, "we are here to put all of that aside, that despite who you are, we love you," says Saymendy Lloyd, founder of Women's Wing Organization. More than 250 children received gift
