WOMAN. . . . . . . . .
When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….
An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”
The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”
She must function on all kinds of situations,
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
She must do all this with only two hands,”
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day”
THE ANGEL was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!
And this is the standard model?”
The Angel came closer and touched the woman”
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”
“Can she think?” The Angel asked…
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”
The Angel touched her cheeks….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”
“She is not leaking…it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angel…
“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel….. .
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…
This made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous”
Lord said.”Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.
Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”
The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback
“She often forgets what she is worth”.
Send it to all the women u respect ….👍
And to all men who respect woman 👍👍
W O M A N:
● changes her name.
● changes her home.
● leaves her family.
● moves in with you.
● builds a home with you.
● gets pregnant for you.
● pregnancy changes her body.
● she gets fat.
● almost gives up in the labour room due to the unbearable pain of child birth..
● even the kids she delivers bear your name..
Till the day she dies.. everything she does… cooking, cleaning your house, taking care of your parents, bringing up your children, earning, advising you, ensuring you can be relaxed, maintaining all family relations, everything that benefit you.. sometimes at the cost of her own health, hobbies and beauty.
So who is really doing whom a favour?
Dear men, appreciate the women in your lives always, because it is not easy to be a woman.
*Being a woman is priceless*
Happy women’s week!
Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.
Rock the world ladies!
A salute to ladies!
I respect women.

A good Marriage. Almost 50 years and going strong.

Before going for his walk today, hubby smiled at me and gave me a peck on the cheek. I asked with a smile ‘what is that in aid of?’ he said ” i just looked at you and remembered all the years we have spent together”.  I wonder if that’s because i was in the kitchen preparing vegetables for soup and his main memories are of me in the kitchen :-/. However, this was a lovely unexpected gesture:-)) as he is not a very demonstrative man and these occasions are sporadic.

It got me thinking….in 4 years time we will have been married 50 years. Wow!! Believe me when i say it just seems like 20 years. Time flies past so quickly that is seems like a blink of the eye and your collecting your pension. I feel blessed and i want to share a picture with my followers of my lovely hubby ,children,grandchildren and foster daughter. You might think I’m showing off, and yes…. i am because i am so happy and proud of what i have and i wish the same for all couples. (p.s don’t know why my eyes are always closed when i have my picture taken 😦 )

Being married is not easy and everyone has their ups and downs and we are no exception. They say, never go to bed on an argument…well we have! I am sure we all try not to but in reality it does not always work. My stance on this is not to let an argument fester and things generally look better in the morning so sort out your problems asap. Mutual respect, consideration for each other are very important and cover a multitude of things.  Knowing that you can depend on each other whatever the situation and talking about your feelings. These things have to be a two way street. Although i have my own way a lot because my hubby is so laid back i still respect his opinion and discuss things with him. If he ever says no to anything that concerns us both then i will listen and refrain. I never take advantage of his kindness and vice versa.

One of the nicest things you can say to your partner, “If I had it to do over again, I’d choose you. Again.”

Because I realise just how extremely lucky I was and how unlikely are the odds of finding just the right man I’d be the last one to advise anyone else on how to do it and also the last to judge anyone whose marriage didn’t work out because they hadn’t been as fortunate as me.However i do think that many people rush into relationships and expect them to just keep working after the honeymoon period not expecting to re adjust, not to expect falling out periods,  feel defeat at the first signs of a crisis. We cant expect to spend our whole life in close proximity to another person without some trials and tribulations .

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails..”

Here is a story that touched my heart.  http://www.sptimes.com/2008/03/04/Northpinellas/Even_death_couldn_t_k.shtml

Too many gadgets in my kitchen.

I am usually quite an organised person and i don’t like clutter but when it comes to anything in the kitchen i always seem to find a place to put food and gadgets.

I had a very large chest freezer whilst i was bringing up my family and fostering teenagers. I needed the room for the big family shop and bulk cooking. I love feeding people and i have always been adventurous in my cooking. My foster kids just loved me for my food i think.

Anyway when my kids left and i gave up fostering i downsized to a smaller freezer but as there is just two of us now its still too big. It just encourages me to keep filling it up 😦  I am afraid to ask hubby once again for a new smaller freezer as the present one was quite expensive. I buy things i think i want at the time and a year or two down the line its not what i want.

I bought a mini doughnut make just to practice a different kind of doughnut, doughnut pans and rings for another kind of doughnut and i don’t even eat them! I bought a new food processor ,a new fancy hand blender and then decided they were not big enough to do large amounts of food so bought a ken wood chef. Like i said there is only two of us in the house and how many times i will use then goodness knows. I bought an actifry and used it 3 times and ended up giving it to my daughter. I gave my george forman large grill away as i thought it was too big and then i decided to buy another when we changed to low fat cooking. I decided to try making my own icecream so i bought an ice-cream maker which i later decided i did not want, after all said an done i dont really eat ice cream, i used to give it away. This is all within the last 3 years. I always seem to need a new gadget for a new challange and one of these days hubby will put his foot down and say ‘No more’.

I have to cut this post short because i am off to the supermarket. I have just realised that i need some new utensils for my new cake decorating hobby and while i am there i might just need something else.

Gimmie my socks!!

For years i have been having the same problem but this is just getting out of hand

If you have a husband and his underwear goes missing you’d be worried. Or a wife who’s bras went missing you would ask yourself some pretty close to the bone questions. I have 8 odd socks, 8 are missing they belong to both male and female and i was the one who was handeling them They go into the washing basket and then when i am ready they go into the washing machine. Ok……….normal you say but i really need a detective here now!!! when i open the machine door i discover theft……….theft of socks.

Who the thief is i have never been able to find out. Its such a mystery. I spend a fortune on socks.If any one knows who or what the sock snatcher is or how this occures i would be forever in their debt.
