A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

Thursday, January 15, 2009

Someone sent this to me when I was going through some hard times with our journey . I hope it gives you a *spark* of strength like it did for me :o)

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

one old love
she can imagine
going back to...and one who reminds
her how far she has come...

enough money within her
control to move out and
rent a place of her own
even if she never wants
to or needs to...

something perfect to wear if
the employer
or date of her dreams
wants to see her in an hour.

a youth she's content
to leave behind....a past juicy enough that
she's looking forward to
retelling it
in her old age....

a set of screwdrivers, a
cordless drill, and a black lace bra...

one friend who always makes
her laugh...and one who lets her cry...

a good piece of furniture
not previously owned by anyone
else in her family...

eight matching plates, wine
glasses with stems, and a recipe
for a meal that will make her
guests feel honored.

a feeling of control over
her destiny...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

how to fall in love without
losing herself.

HOW TO QUIT A JOB,
BREAK UP WITH A LOVER,
AND CONFRONT A FRIEND
WITHOUT RUINING THE FRIENDSHIP...

when to try harder ... and
WHEN TO WALK AWAY...

that she can't change the
length of her calves, the width
of her hips, or the nature of her
parents....

that her childhood may not
have been perfect...but it's over...

what she would and wouldn't
do for love or more...

how to live alone ... even if
she doesn't like it..

whom she can trust,
whom she can't,
and why she shouldn't
take it personally...

where to go...
be it to her best friend's
kitchen table...
or a charming inn in the woods...
when her soul needs soothing

what she can and can't
accomplish in a day...
a month...
and a year.


am still awaitng to see two more dr's sometime before the end of the month.....am hoping i will have some answers soon........... ......i continue to work through the pain some days are better than others of course........one day at a time...............
blessings and hugs.....................lita

    I've seen this, love it and I think it is soooooo true. Women should be a little more prepared than men just because we are more often targets than men. Good words Lita!
