ONE FLAW IN WOMEN
If I could be fired as a blogger, today might be my D-day. I admit I'm scurrying around the house getting ready to entertain guests in my home tonight. Ladies, you know how that goes. Race out of bed, go through your normal daily necessities and then add on a little cooking, cleaning, straightening. Then you go to work and you come home and you do some more cooking, cleaning and straightening. It's 8:00 a.m. and I already feel like I've put 8 hours of work in ... but enough about me.
Today's post is about women. I freely admit that this is one of those nuisance emails that gets forwarded, although I didn't detect a threat of bodily injury or curses if you do not forward it. It just reminded me how special and adaptable God made women. Sometimes we need to pat ourselves on the back and appreciate each other a little bit more, don't you agree? And to the men: this is the kind of helpmate God has in mind for you - what a gift! So here goes nothing:
Women have strengths that amaze men....
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in…
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally..
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.
Women have vital things to say
and everything to give..
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
Please pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind them just how amazing they are…
One last aside, the phrase "makes the world keep turning" brings a smile to my face because my 21 year old son actually said that it's women like me who keep the world spinning around. It's nice to be appreciated. So go tell someone how much they have blessed your life, and keep on being a blessing for the glory of God.
