It is truly an amazing event when a woman understands how strong she really is. I wrote a friend today, and it dawned on me....I really am a strong woman. If you know me, you most likely know my past, and you know it's not pretty. But if you don't, it's okay. The ephipany doesn't have to be lost on you. Living in this day and age is remarkable. We have every known convenience. We have everything a civil society could want, and yet there are women in this country who wake up every morning and truly believe they are ugly, fat, unwanted, stupid...the adjectives could go on for days. How did we come to this?
If you have a woman in your life, any woman; whether she is your wife, mother, lover, sister, aunt, grandmother or just your mail carrier, please tell her you appreciate her. Tell her she is lovely. Tell her she is fill in the blank. Because women are more than 3 times likely to attempt suicide than men just to see if someone will care enough to ask why. So if you care about a woman or women in your life, tell them.
We are the last glorious, shining creations of God's hand.
