Dear Lord, I pray for:
Wisdom, To understand a man
Love, To forgive him and
Patience, For his moods
Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength
I'll just beat him to death.
Hugz,

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE


....one old love
she can imagine
going back to...
and one who reminds
her how far she has come...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

....enough money within her
control to move out and
rent a place of her own
even if she never wants
to or needs to...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...something perfect to wear if
the employer or date of her dreams
wants to see her in an hour...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...a youth she's content
to leave behind...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

....a past juicy enough that
she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age....

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE
....a set of screwdrivers, a
cordless drill, and a black
lace bra...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

...one 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

....eight 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...

As the saying goes, "Been there, done that and have a few t-shirts, battle scars, etc., to prove it. :bg: and now my biggest decision in life right now is whether I want to retire next spring and stay home and quilt and sew the rest of my life or work 2-3 more years and pay for another new Ford Expedition. :nc:

Hi Patsy, I canít wait till I retire (a few more years to go!?), so I can sew and quilt and designÖ I would do it tomorrow if I could. Is the new Ford Exp so important? You are talking about a car? If you are, after all, itís only a carÖ :nc: :cool:

Remember, it takes about 40 muscles to frown,
13 to smile
and only 4 to smack 'em round the head.
You can guess where my wrinkles are!
love and kisses, Jan
