    there are so many women
    to whom I owe so much
    for sharing their wisdom

    since I was 17, apart from
    my mother and my
    motherdear ~
    both exceptional women,
    God blessed me with an
    outstanding cast of characters
    who taught me so much

    there was gloria
    who told me never to
    get in the "family way"
    or I might end up like her
    married, with children...
    and not in love

    there was tina...
    who told me to always
    have enough on my
    credit card for a room
    at a hotel for a night or two
    "cuz girl you neva know"

    there were linda, gail, and monica
    who said they didn't understand
    what it was about the insides
    of a woman's love canal
    that drove men crazy...
    but it was shole worth
    finding out

    there was brenda
    who said to always have
    my own bank account
    and some mad money
    nobody knew about

    there was "brenda brenda"
    who said it was all well
    and good to buy property
    as joint tenants in common..
    but by all means own my own
    ... and I could
    always be viable...

    there was linda c. who told
    me not to feel guilty if I needed
    to take "quiet time" away
    from the babies...I needed
    to energize in order to
    keep all of us healthy


    there was jean
    who said to lift my hands
    toward heaven, & pray out loud
    in front of my children
    "Lord, I can't be with em
    all the time, but WHATEVA
    wrong they do in secret, bring it to light!"


    there was loretta who said
    sex is so gooood after forty...

    there is evelyn who said
    sex is better after fifty...no inhibitions
    no fear of more babies, nobody in the nest
    to interrupt ~ uh you know...

    and then there is floy who said
    sex is the best after 60...
    no more punching the clock...
    just ~ :wink:


    I thank the Lord for all the women
    who have come my way
    every report they've given
    I've trusted, have heeded
    most of their advice...and can truly say

    I've been blessed thus far

    and I'm still

    looking forward...
