Day 16: Favorite Female Character

Oh dear, we've got ourselves another conundrum. If I thought I had a hard time picking a favorite male character, I'm going to have an even harder time choosing a favorite female. Do I go the Harry Potter route, which is filled with smart and strong women? Do I go with something from Sarah Addison Allen? Or do I dig into my past like I did for the last one. *sigh* With so many choices I'm going to cop out a bit and go with...
Molly Weasley
It's true, I love Mrs. Weasley. I think she is the embodiment of motherhood. She is not only a mother to her own children, but to anyone in need of one. She does her best with the circumstances and hand she is dealt in life.

One thing that I love about Molly Weasley is that she doesn't back down in the face of adversity. She holds strong to her beliefs and is willing to fight for the right. I also love that she loves her children unconditionally. She doesn't always agree with what they say or do, but they are hers and she will fight to the grave for them.

To me, she seems to make anyplace she goes "home". She truly cares about everyone she comes into contact with, and is willing to take anyone she can fit under her wing. I think that, as a mother, there are a lot of things I could learn from Molly Weasley.

Plus, she has a really cool clock.
