Years later, nothing makes me more grateful as a parent than my daughters' encounters with classroom wizards.
Without a doubt, absolutely, a woman will be a president, and probably sooner rather than later. I am excited about that, and if what I did serves as a steppingstone for another woman down the course, I am very grateful to have had that chance.
I have pretty thick eyebrows, so I'm really grateful to Brooke Shields, the first time around, and now Cara Delevingne for making that such a thing. For those of us who were born that way, it's kind of nice.

Writing is never, ever easy but I wake up every morning grateful for the gift of being able to do this.
