In Celebration of my Female Friends

  1. :kissblush
    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 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 help to heal a broken heart.

    Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They'll drive, fly, walk, or 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.

    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. 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.

    Just remember....beautiful, caring, compassionate, loving women could not be what they are without fathers.


    ANd some guys, who wear a Speedo, would make the Greek/Roman God Mercury blush :-)

    Everyone passes gas, men may take more pride. Ladies try to "sav'em up" their flatulence :-)

    Men and women have similiar emotional qualities. We're not the same, because, well, then women couldn't shine like they do. Nothing can compare to a womans touch.
