For Marie and Mary!
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. They are child care 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 against injustice.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
Women are honest, loyal, and forgiving.
They know 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.
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.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They live in houses, apartments and cabins.
They drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about
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 in return is a hug, a smile, and for you to do the same
for people you come in contact with.
Men are good at lifting heavy crap and killing spiders.
Love you both. Thanks for being my friends.
