To be a Woman

To be a woman..
What does it mean? What encompasses the idea?
What is it to be a woman?? These are questions that many a man has and will ask. May men will spend their entire lives struggling to try to understand what it is to be a woman. Many will give up, toss their hands in the air and say " I’ll never understand what it means to be a female!" what these men do not comprehend…
Is that often even we do not understand what it means to be a woman! Our bodies often feel foreign to even ourselves, as the chemicals and hormones race around causing lumps, bumps, pains and odd feelings. physically being a woman cannot be written in a list. Each woman experiences life differently. We have moments where we do not think rationally, logic escapes even us.. Hormones, lack of sleep, stress, all take over, our brains leave us to fend for ourselves. Lord help any person who gets in our way during these irrational moments.. we scare even ourselves sometimes.

As a woman we have been gifted with the ability to give life. We carry and nurture the next generation within our bodies for nine enduring and loving months. Once born we cherish and protect that new life. God has granted woman the strength to endure the weight of the world, love unconditionally.. despite being hurt by those we love, we have been granted the ability to cherish and forgive those we love. Most of all God has granted women the ability to cry when needed! This shedding of a tear is the most precious of gifts. Irrational even to us at times. A single tear show;s the ultimate of emotion and love for those around us! A single tear can cleanse our souls, releasing the weight upon our shoulders. A single tear can cleanse the anger, hurt, pain, anquish that women carry.

To be a woman means to relentlessly rise at the crack of dawn, wake the household, assist those we care about with starting their day, once everyone is awake, and off, we begin our day. we set aside our coffee cups, dawn a pair of heels, a bright smile and head to work. We spend all day pleasing others, strangers, often those who don’t care that we send happy smiles their way despite the weight upon our shoulders. After work we stumble merrily in the door, only to kick off our heels, grab pots and pans, and start dinner for the family, toss in a load of laundry, fold a load of laundry, trail behind the children and husband to pick up that which was discarded on the way to the tv. We often switch off light switches along our path, rush back to the kitchen to finish dinner preparations, peek our head into the living room and remind everyone to do homework, recheck the laundry merrily tumbling away. Check homework, serve dinner, clean up the dishes, grab the car keys and head back out the door for the childrens extra curricular activities. Once all are tucked into bed and peacefully sleeping we sigh and move around the house, shutting off lights, picking up and putting away objects, preparing lunches, folding that last load of laundry, lock up, check on every family member and finally collapse into blissful sleep..
So what does it mean to be a woman??? even we may not understand it fully but to be a woman is to have broad accepting shoulders, bear the weight of the entire family, smile sweetly and lovingly su[pport and hold those we love up, Most of all being a woman means being unique and beautiful! We have the most precious job of all! Loving those around us :)wmaon
