Playing "Just The Way You Are"

Tribute to Women

  [submitted by a reader at the Ask Dear B site]


WOMEN have strength that amaze men.
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.

WOMEN wait by the phone for a
"safe at home call"
from a friend or a relative
after a snowy drive home.

WOMEN have special qualities about them.
They volunteer for good causes.
They are pink ladies in hospitals.
They bring food to shut-ins.
They are childcare workers, executives, attorney,
stay-at-home moms, biker babes and your neighbors.
They wear suits, jeans, and they wear uniforms.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They are in the front now at PTA meetings.
They vote for the person that
will do the best job for family issues.

WOMEN walk and talk the extra mile
to get their children in the right schools and
for getting their family the right health care.
They write to the editor, their congressmen
and "to the powers that be"
for things that make for a better life.
They don't take "no"
for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

WOMEN stick a love note in their husband's lunch box.
They do without new shoes
so their children can have them.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.

WOMEN are honest, loyal, and forgiving.
They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power,
but they still know how to use
their softer side to make a point.

WOMEN want to be best for their family,
the friends and themselves.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.

WOMEN are happy (or cry) 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.

A WOMAN'S touch can cure any ailment.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
She can make a romantic evening unforgettable.

WOMEN come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They live in homes, apartments and cabins.
They drive, fly, walk, run
or email you or
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.
All they want back is a hug, a smile
and for you to do the same
to people you come in contact with.

WOMEN have a lot to say and a lot to give.

The beauty of a woman
is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries,
or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen
from in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart,
the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
the passion that she shows, and
the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.
