Be it your mom or sister, tell the first woman you meet in the morning, how wonderful she is. Give her a big smile, a warm hug and appreciate her for everything she’s doing. A little bit of positive reinforcement is all she needs to keep up the good work she’s doing. Leaving her a thoughtful thank-you note or gifting an elegant piece of jewelry will make her day even more special.
Make Dinner Plans with Your Ladies
