Stopped by my bother’s house. Here I can access the internet. My computer is still down, awaiting the key board that is in transit.
My message is short today. I am asking for prayers for our dear blogging friend Sarah. Over the past few months Sarah has become an important part in many of our lives. If you check back and read her various messages, she has been bravely battling cancer in the final stages.
Sarah our prayers are with you and we all hope the best for you and that we may even actually hear from you again here on the blog.
While here at my brothers I have also checked email, which I can’t access from home. There are many messages that are so meaningful to me. With Sarah in mind this one really struck me:
One Flaw In Women
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and 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.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies…
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they
think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours.
They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what
makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.
Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
This is directed to Sarah and all the wonderful ladies both in my life and every where in this world.
My wise bother Eric just walked past and pointed out laughingly. Women don’t appreciate their own worth any more than they seem to appreciate the value of the Howdle brothers. LOL
