For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...
A set of screwdrivers,

A cordless drill, and a black lace bra..


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

Onr friend who Always makes her Laugh...

And one who lets her cry...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

A good piece of furniture

Not previously owned by

Anyone else in her family...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

Light matching plates,

wine glasses with stems,

And a recipe for a meal

that will make her guests feel honored...


A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE...

A feeling of control over Her destiny...


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

How to fall in love

Without losing herself...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

How to quit a Job

Break up with a lover

And confront a friend without ruining the friendship...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

When to try harder...

And WHEN TO WALK AWAY...


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

That she can't change

The length of her calves,

The width of her hips, or

the nature of her parents...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

That her childhood

May not have been Perfect..

but; Its over.. .

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

What she would and Wouldn't Do for love or more...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

How to live alone...

Even if She doesn't like it...


EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

Whom she can trust,

Whom she can't,

and why she shouldn't Take it personally...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

Where to go...

Be it to her best friend's kitchen table..

Or a charming inn in the woods...

When her soul needs soothing... !

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW...

What she can and can't accomplish

In a day... A month..And a year...

but, if nothing else...

I like this. I think it's talking again about growing up and maturing into a solid woman. My personal comment on this is that Rome wasn't built in a day. I t takes time to learn these things so take your time to learn these things. Enjoy growing up. Look at each one as something wonderful to experience.
Love,
Chatty
