GIU Day 5
Thank you, Unity.
This stamp set if very special to me, because this was when I first heard of Unity stamp company and it was my first purchase.
Being a woman of color, i long for stamp sets that reflect me and my heritage. This set was a pleasure to find. I do have to remind people just because we are of color doesn't mean we all dress in traditional garb. We dress just like everyone else. We sit on the beach, look at the ocean, have moments of solitude, think deep thoughts. I was happy to see Unity's choice with this stamp set.
The strength of a woman of color. We are the same, we take the burdens, we stand for what is right, we stand strong, we are the gatherers, we start our journeys. Just like all the other women. Our difference is we do this while being challenged about our purpose, work twice as hard to be considered just as good , so we can be viewed as equal. Most will not see or understand because as women this is not what our hearts are we are the nurturers, but this is how things are.
We women of color show our strength by also understanding that those views don't define us. We defines our selves, we reach out our hands in friendship, because we know this is where our strength is. We understand that it is the journey that make us strong.
Thank you Unity for the stamp set and for the opportunity to be a GUI girl. May you continue to be women of strength in your business, within your family and as you continue to create inspiration in you sentiments and to show portraits of women of strength in your stamps.
