The Essentials

We consider hope to be an essential, something we all need to carry in our handbag or our pocket or our heart. When we posted this on Facebook, many women added lipstick as one of their essentials and we understand that too (and it did give us a giggle). Still others wanted to be sure we knew that a woman from this era wouldn’t have a phone in her handbag (that also made us giggle – how we love our literal thinker Queens). Whatever do you think is essential? What do you always want to have with you, handy and ready to use? Would it be optimism, tenacity, grit, or something else? We’d love to hear. Let’s create a big list of Queenly essentials, shall we?

    Life without hope is no life at all. Hope keeps us going and gives us the stamina to carry on. Never give up hope as an essential!

    Love! It’s a basic wardrobe staple for the heart!

    Humor. Can’t leave home without that!

    My Mother always had to have her earrings and lipstick on before leaving the house. But she also carried kindness and love with her. I would add these to hope.

    Isn’t that a wonderful lesson from your Mother, Queen Denise?
