Feeling pretty tired right now and would love to had off for a nap. Will be doing that in a while but it is just not practical at this moment. Everyday I take pills to help me pass water. By them selves they aren’t enough and I slowly retain water. Every 4 or 5 days depending on my weight gain I then take a much stronger pill. Today is one of those days and I will be running to the bathroom every 5 or 10 minutes. Makes any sort of nap kind of difficult. It just means I will enjoy the nap all the more when I do get to it. I have been thinking about a post I did a few days ago. I wrote of how I see the physical beauty of a woman as being ageless. I hear and read so often of women that seem to feel beauty fades with age or fitness level or what ever. That is just not true. Now be clear, I know the real beauty lies within. That beauty is also ageless, in fact increases as time goes by. We all grow from our experiences. Physical beauty is never a yardstick by which anyone should be measured. By writing of physical beauty, I suppose I hope to reassure all ladies that age and time do not diminish your physical beauty, which like it of not is the way so many seem to see themselves. I am trying to say something nice hear, just not sure if I am finding the words to express what I really feel. It occurred to me, that while I am sure they are out there, I have never seen anything of the sort written by a woman about men. I have read in a lot of places, a lot of men bashing and in many individual cases this is very understandable and justified. I can only hope that not all men are painted with the same brush because of a few bad apples. There are bad news stories about men everywhere. I am hoping to hear some good new stories about men. It is like, bad news flourishes and passes quickly and widely, lets see if we can’t try to get some good news being passed around. We all know the world is full of good women, well it is just as full of good men so often it seems we forget they are there. I invite all, no I ask all to please leave me a comment about men in general or your man in particular. Oh, be clear I am not fishing for compliments here and would prefer if comments were directed to your thought on men in general or of your man/men. To get this ball rolling I am going to straight out ask some of my cyber friends to give their thoughts and feelings. I do realize because of individual circumstances this may be more difficult for some than others, but please give it a go. For those of you with a blog should you choose to do it there or as a comment here, either is fine by me. I am hoping for a comment from:
Jo Hart, Jo I know you don’t have your own blog so am looking forward to hearing from you here in a comment.
Simonne As a newly wed, I am sure you can add some thoughts. I hope you will extend them to men in general.
Jennie I realize this may be a difficult one for you because of your circumstances. But it is because of those circumstances I am asking you to share. Possibly your thoughts about men in general.
nunsuch For something like this, hearing the opinion of an actual nun will be interesting to hear.
babychaos BC my friend, I know you are very busy with having just become a new mommy. I really would like to hear from you as time permits, you are my longest blogging friend. You have been with me since virtually the beginning.
PS. to my post. I was just looking at the stats and realize this is post #500 for me. Way more than I ever dreamed of. I thank all that have encouraged me to keep going through the kind comments. I still think I have a lot more to say. By my plans the journal will not be ending anytime soon.
