My cousin Kerryn went to Paris a couple weeks ago and sent me this necklace as a surprise. I opened it yesterday and love it, especially since I never would have picked this out for myself.
She’s a mini-warrioress wearing a basket-weave vest that looks like a shield with a silver feather across it, a leather and feather skirt, hip boots—she’s even carrying her black cat.
Aren’t mothers like a warrioress? I know mine was when any of her kids were sick—she went into warrior-mode until we were better.
Actually, there is no such word as a ‘warrioress.’ Apparently, the word warrior is non-gender and applies to both male and female. However, if you wanted a female-specific word, it would be shieldmaiden which is a woman who had chosen to fight as a warrior.
Happy Mother’s Day!
BTW the necklace came from Anoki Paris
