Phenominal Women

I thank God every day that I'm not a man!

There are so many blessings in being a woman. I know, you're probably thinking I've lost it, but really... think about all the things that are special about womanhood.

We get to wear beautiful clothes and not be made fun of for them. In fact, where men are ridiculed for and over abundant sense of style, we are applauded for the same trait. Not only do we get to wear those beautiful things... we get to dress daughters and nieces up in things just as cute. (Have you noticed how pitiful the selection of little boys clothing is these days?)

We get to choose what we do... we can have the career of our dreams or stay home and raise a beautiful family... or find a rich man who will dote on us and treat us like gold and never have to work again (which sounds absolutely lovely in theory but probably would be extremely boring for me personally in real life)

We get to have crazy, insane, amazing relationships with our mothers, aunts, cousins and girlfriends. Men don't understand these relationships but they are the butter on our daily bread and sometimes the only things that keep us sane!

We don't get considered a wimp if we weasel out of the heavy lifting. But we do get lots of points with guys when we can take care of ourselves (Note: For some reason, my friend's husband thinks I can change a tire... I need to correct this false assumption... I know the theoretical basics of changing a tire, however the practice of such is still foreign to me.)

We are soft, we are strong, we are fearless, we are comfort, we are tenderness, we are determination, we are women! And I think... because we are so many of these things without being too much of any one of these things... we are phenominal!!

  1. I really really liked this post Katie. I’d never thought about it quite like that. And honey, changing a tire is about as foreign as Mandarin Chinese to me too. I know the concept of, but couldn’t actually do it even if you paid me.
