What’s YOUR Superpower?

Can You Match Our Superpowers?

Yes, this IS the way I see it.
Volunteering for Thrift Shops for Nova gives us superpowers:  the powers to help, to give and to care; the power to offer compassion, companionship and services; the power to listen to and share stories.
We ARE strong and invincible!
Thank you, Thrift Shops for Nova, for giving us this opportunity.

Though we do have some very dedicated, committed men volunteers, no one could disagree that we are mostly women. For that reason I am reminded of Helen Reddy and her hit song from the 1970’s.
Hear the version she sang in 2013 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAo8k0Fq1OM I’ve included the lyrics for you as well. Enjoy.
I AM WOMAN by Helen Reddy
I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
‘Cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again
Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman
You can bend but never break me
‘Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
‘Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul
Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman
I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand
Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can face anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman

    It’s so sad, this constant struggle to overcome the unfair assumption that we men can’t help what nature made us.
