Lightbulb A Women

A women....
has worth, so stop settling for men who dont understand your worth and want to treat you as if you dont deserve the respect he is supposed to give you.
A women....
deserves only the best, so stop settling for less than what you deserve. If you know that you deserve a raise, more respect from your man or someone else in your life, don't stop till you get it.
A women....
can bounce back. Don't get discourged by life because everyone has problems, and somewhere in the world, some one has is worse than you.
A women....
understands and accepts who she is for what she is and what she has the preserverence to become. Don't let anyone make you feel like you should change who you are to better your self, because you will only hurt yourself. Change because you want to and you know that you need to.
A women..
has carisma, not a "named" appearence. Carry your self as yourself, dress to your personality, but remember that people only respect those who respect themselves. If you look like trash, you will get treated like it.
And most importantly a women knows that she does not have to have a man in her life to make her feel complete. She knows that a man is not going to make who she is and that she has to love, respect, trust, and know herself and be comfortable with that before a man can even come into question. Men are great! and there is one out there for everyone! But dont settle for any man who will treat you less that what you know you deserve because it aint worth it. A man will never make you happy till you are happy with your self and the way you let him treat you. Make sure he knows that you are not going to lower your expectaions of your self and your life so a man can be in it. A women can live with out one and she can be sucessful and happy with one just as she can without one. You bite into a few bad apples and that is okay because as long as you stand up for yourself you will learn the value of being a women, your worth, what you deserve and what you dont, and your self along the way. Reach for the moon and youll lang among the stars. Dont ever put up with bull-sh*t just because, have a reason or do something about it. You control your life, so do what you want and dont worry about what people think, let them think because you know the truth. Think about what you are upset over, if it is dumb, than get over it. If not, talk to someone, cry and the start building your brigde to get over it becaue with every heartache dome a triumph and what comes around goes around. I f someone hurts you, get over it because someone will hurt them twice as bad, dont fell guilty for doing what is best for you, always help each other get thourh times of tears, and be there for one another for the laughs. Women are respected by some, and trashed by others. Respect your self love your self and everything in the world will fall back into place with beatiful, confidant, women, taking back controll of it. Oh yeah, and dint let any one discourage you, get up and do what you know you can - nothing is impossible, esp. with God.

For all the Sisters out there

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting with her Mother. As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood.
The mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter.

"Don't forget your Sisters," she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass." They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the children you may have, you are still going to need Sisters.

Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. And remember that Sisters" also means your girlfriends, your daughters, and other women, relatives too.
You'll need other women. Women always do."

'What a funny piece of advice!' the young woman thought.
'Haven't I just gotten married? Haven't I just joined the couple-world?

I'm now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup. Surely my husband! and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile! But she listened to her Mother.

She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year. As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about.

As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life. After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned:

Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't call when they say they will.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.
Girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles
Are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.
When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk
It by yourself, your girlfriends will be on the valley's rim, cheering
You on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf,
And waiting with open arms at the valley's end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you.
Or come in and carry you out.
Girlfriends, daughters, daughter-in-laws, sisters, sisters-in-law,
Mother, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family,
Bless our life!
The world wouldn't be the same without them, and neither would I.
When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of The incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.
Nor did we know how much we would need each other.
Every day, we need each other still.

Empower someone cause you can not because you have too!

Have a great day!
May you walk in the shadow of the Great Spirit~To help others is a special gift we can either give or take~The more you give the more you receive~

Exclamation One Flaw in Women

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable
and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything
With only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hours a day."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"But I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,">the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
Her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!
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 ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
PLEASE pass this along to all your women friends and relatives to remind
them just how amazing they are.
May you walk in the shadow of the Great Spirit~To help others is a special gift we can either give or take~The more you give the more you receive~

A woman needs to know that she has everything she needs to be her authentic self. It is right within.
