I hope like me you have been enjoing this beautiful warm and for most very welcome weather. Having spent the weekend away I popped into a supermarket on the way home from my trip to purchase a few necessities (as one does) and I was surprised at just how busy the supermarket was (I thought with this splendid weather it would have been quiet). The supermarket was busy with, dare I say it women shopping and quite obviously shopping for food for the B-B-Q weather (so that I do not sound sexist, I did spot a few men shopping too). This made me think and admire a woman's strength, her dedication to friends and family and loved ones, womens often sacrifice a great deal and go out of their way to ensure their families and friends and loved ones are looked after. This does not mean that men do not do that too, because of course they do but in different ways.

Later that day I came across a wonderful story/quote on Facebook and I just had to share with you and my FB and Twitter followers. Here it is,

"A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?” “Because I’m a woman,” she told him. “I don’t understand,” he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.” Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?” “All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say. The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?” God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort. I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children. I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining. I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly. I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.” “You see my son,” said God, “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 in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides.”     Author: Unknown
