In The Auntie Way, I write about the importance of all our Aunties, whether related or chosen. Aunties are special people in our lives who lead and support with kindness, fierceness, and creativity. In the conclusion of The Auntie Way, I write, “Aunties best distinguish themselves through demonstrating the care and concern of kin, with or without the sturdy branches of a family tree; Aunties can provide other trees, blossoming with hope and possibility.”
Take a moment today to pause and think of an Auntie who has demonstrated care for you. And celebrate yourself if you are actively Auntie-ing someone else!
Aunties are awesome!
