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.
Woman have special qualities.
They volunteer for good causes.
They are pink ladies in hospitals.
They bring food to shut-ins.
They march to support cancer research.
Women are in all walks of life.
They are child care workers, executives,
attorneys, stay-at-home moms,
nurses, doctors, school bus drivers,
biker babes and your neighbors.
They wear suits, jeans, dresses, sweats, shorts...
...and they wear uniforms.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up against 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 lead boy scouts and girl scouts.
They walk and talk the extra mile to get
their children in the right schools and
their family the right health care.
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 a lunch box.
They do without new shoes so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
Women love unconditionally.
They are honest, loyal, and forgiving.
They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power...
But they 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.
They can make a romantic evening unforgettable.
Women come in all sizes, all colors, shapes, and ages.
They live in homes, apartments, trailers, and cabins.
They drive, fly, walk, run, write, call 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 was sent to you by someone who respects you
as a woman and
who sees many of your qualities in this.
Why not pass it on to someone you know?
"That which does not destroy me only makes me stronger."
