    A Woman's Strength

    A woman has strengths that amaze me...

    She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens
    She holds happiness, love & opinions
    She smiles when she feels like screaming
    She sings when she feels like crying
    She cries when she's happy, and laughs when she's afraid, and her love is unconditional.

    There's only one thing wrong with her, she forgets what she's worth!


    Have we forgotten what we're worth?

    We walk around carrying the world on our shoulders, day in and day out, and at the end of the day we don't have anything left for ourselves!

    Have we forgotten what we're worth?

    In the midst of the storms, we shoulder the burdens of everyone to the point that we become drained, stressed and literally beaten down from it all!

    Have we forgotten what we're worth?

    Walking around with a smile on our face and pain in hearts...trying to hold inside the hurt and wondering all the while why we have so many health issues!

    Have we forgotten what we're worth?

    Come on my beautiful sisters let's purpose to DO better and BE better! No one can do this for us. We have to do it for ourselves! It's timeout for that old school mentality of 'just trying to get by and maintain'! Forget that!!!! We want PROSPERITY so let's just take it!!!

    Be encouraged my beautiful sisters!!!

    . Black Women
    Honor Thyself. Black Men Place Black
    Women On Pedestals. Black
    communities throughout the world
    continue to face serious social
    dilemmas, which jeopardize and

    and females of all age how to
    initiate meaningful dialogue and
    change their negative and
    degrading perceptions of Black

    women to recognize their personal
    and ancestral worth and celebrates

    prevent demoralization and burnout.
    Behold, Black women are beautiful,
    Black women are powerful, and
    Black women are
    extraordinary...they are Queens.

    A BLACK WOMAN'S WORTH
    by Darrell A Cador
    Monday, May 28, 2007

    In the midst of all that was, is, and is to be, the one consistency in the life of a Black Man is the presence of his cherished Black Woman. Whether he's aware of this or not is a matter of perspective. Yet, her profound role in the evolution of this uncrowned king is truly unmatched.

    'Do Black Men Still Want Us?' was the question that blazed the cover of a popular magazine. To all of my beautiful, intelligent, multi-talented, multi-dimensional, heart-warming, free-spirited, sumptuous, sensual, mind-blowing Black sisters who desire an answer to such an inquiry, you need look no further than the question itself. Black Men Still Do. And not only do we still want the most prized and treasured possession on earth...but we need you!

    We yearn for you the way a flower yearns for the sun: For without you, existence is difficult if not impossible. We long for you the way fish long for the ocean: For life begins to end the moment we are separated from you. And we desire you the way a Black Man desires his Black Woman: For only Chocolate Stars can make little chocolate bars.

    Too often a particular value is placed on you, which, honestly, makes me laugh. The Hope Diamond, in all its marveled brilliancy, appears as nothing more than a dollar store paperweight compared to you. How foolish is it to put a price on something so priceless.

    And by all means, my dark-skinned, light-skinned, fair-skinned sisters, if nothing else, always be mindful of the resilient gene pool from whence you came. A mere one out of five slaves survived the physical, mental, and spiritual horrors of the Middle Passage. And you, in all your strength, beauty and allure, are a direct descendant of those determined few.

    A Black Woman's worth is worth more than the world will ever know. And as long as you know, trust, and believe this.then so shall we.
