    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 honoured.


    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...

    A woman should ALWAYS know....when it's time to walk a way!

    But it's VERY hard sometimes....we were designed to nurture and love unconditionally. So walking away is somthing that does not come naturally...

    But we do need to learn how to do it at times...for sure...

    I forgot about this thread. I was just browsing around and found it again.

    What you say is SO true.

    Twice I have been in love, and I've loved deeply...and you never really walk away....especially from your first love. You never ever forget! When I was young, I probably thought I had "loved" others, but as an adult, I KNOW what and when it was.

    I was been blessed with parents that showed me how love looks in a good marriage, too. So, unconditional love is absolutely something that has come naturally to me. If once I love you....I always will!

    :hearts:

    God's love is even greater than that of a woman! :hugs:
