To be a Woman



There is eminence in being a woman. And this trait is propelled by her desire to live her life to the fullest, setting her goals while being mindful of her surroundings; achieving her dreams without abandoning an attitude of just taking care of herself.

To be a woman is to recognize success with humility, to face challenges with generosity of spirit, to conquer the world with magnanimity.

In her everyday endeavor, a woman uses her heart to discern what is best for her and for the people she loves; her mind, to pre-gauge the impact of her choice; and her soul, to keep her afloat with all the things life has to offer.
~ Bum D. Tenorio Jr

Don't you think that was a pretty good description of us women? I don't think I could add anymore to that.

This is my salute to all the wonderful women of the world. I salute all my women friends, my grandmothers, my sister and most of all my mom.

I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by loving. ~ Anais Nin

Hi Sophiagurl,
I would like to join you to salute all the wonderful women of the world, especially mothers, for their strength to bear the pain of giving birth, to stay awake at night for their babies and to pour their endless love to their children.

I've tagged you in my blog :)

Hi Sophiagurl,
I fully agree with you.
"O woman! lovely woman!
Nature made thee
To temper man:
we had been brutes without you."
Thanks for sharing another nice post.

Hi Sophiagurl,
I didn't appreciate mothers much until I got married and watched my wife doing housework, raising children and so on. I learned that it need a lot of patience to be a mother and I also learned that I can never repay my mother.
