    My Cousin Sent me this Poem today. She didn't say who wrote it, but whom ever it is really put some thought into it. As I said, I do not know who wrote it, But I was impressed enough with it that I thought I would share it with all of you today. I hope it touches you too....there is so much truth to each and every verse......

    Read, Enjoy and be inspired.

    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 for injustice.
    They don't take "no" for an answer when
    they believe there is a better solution.

    They go without new shoes so their
    children can have them.
    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 new marriage.
    Their hearts break when a friend dies.
    They have sorrow 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 sizes, in all colors and shapes.
    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 spin!
    Women do more than just give birth.
    They bring joy and hope.
    They give compassion and ideals.
    They give moral support to their family and friends.
    Women have a lot to say and a lot to give.

    This has been sent to you from someone who
    respects you as a woman
    Pass it along to your woman friends to
    remind them how amazing
    they are............

    IT'S GOOD TO BE A WOMAN.

    We got off the Titanic first.

    We can scare male bosses with mysterious
    gynecological disorder excuses.

    Taxis stop for us.

    We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing.

    No fashion faux pas we make could ever
    rival The Speedo.

    We don't have to pass gas to amuse ourselves.

    If we forget to shave, no one has to know.

    We can congratulate our teammate without
    ever touching her rear.

    We never have to reach down every so often
    to make sure our privates are still there.

    We have the ability to dress ourselves.

    We can talk to people of the opposite sex
    without having to picture them naked.

    If we marry someone 20 years younger,
    we're aware that we look like an idiot.

    There are times when chocolate really can
    solve all your problems.

    We'll never regret piercing our ears.

    We can fully assess a person just by
    looking at their shoes.

    We can make comments about how silly men
    are in their presence, because they aren't listening
    anyway.


    THIS POEM IS BY AN AUTHOR UNKNOWN.....BUT THE WORDS RING TRUE TODAY AND FOR YEARS TO COME......

    I HOPE YOU LIKED IT.
