Women have strengths that amaze men. They
carry children, they carry hardships, 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.
Women wait by the phone for a "safe at home
call" from a friend after a snowy drive home.
Women have special qualities about them. They
volunteer for good causes. They are pink ladies
in hospitals, they bring food to shut ins. They are
childcare workers, executives, attorneys, stay-
at-home moms, biker babes and your neighbors.
They wear suits, jeans, and they wear uniforms.
They fight for what they believe in. They stand up
for injustice. They are in the front row at PTA
meetings They vote for the person that will do
the best job for family issues. They walk and talk
the extra mile to get their children in the right
schools and for getting their family the right
healthcare. They write to the editor, their
congressmen and to the "powers that be" for
things that make for a better life. They don't take
"no" for an answer when they believe there is
a better solution.
They stick a love note in their husband's lunch
box. They do without new shoes so their children
can have them. They go to the doctor with a
frightened friend. They love unconditionally.
Women are honest, loyal, and forgiving. They
are smart, knowing that knowledge is power.
But they still know how to use their softer side
to make a point. Women want to be the best for
their family, their friends, and themselves.
They cry when their children excel and cheer
when their friends get awards. They are happy
when they hear about a birth or a new marriage.
Their hearts break when a friend dies. They have
sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they
are strong when they think there is no strength
left. A woman's touch can cure any ailment.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a
broken heart. A woman can make a romantic
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and
shapes. They live in homes, apartments and
cabins. They 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 spin!
Women do more than just give birth. They bring
joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
And all they want back is a hug, a smile and for
you to do the same to people you come in contact
with. Women have a lot to say and a lot to give.
This is a note of appreciation to some wonderful women...
