Friday Frills - Here's to Women



HERE'S TO THE WOMAN...
who knows where she's going
and will keep on going until she gets there;
who knows not only what she wants from life
but what she has to offer in return.

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN...
who is loyal to family and friends,
who expects no more from others
than she is willing to give.

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN...
who guides and inspires,
not by quoting others philosophies,
 but by living her own good example;
who accepts both victories and disappointments with the same grace,
and who can rise above life's challenges and move on...

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN...
who gives the gifts of her thoughtfulness,
who shows her caring with a word of support,
Her understanding with a smile;
A woman who brings joy to others
Just by being herself...

We celebrate National Women's Day here in Safrica tomorrow and I would like to dedicate this post to all you amazing and inspiring women from around the world.

Dear Sam, I spent my days in bed this week - I caught another cold... well, this time it was because of the crazy weather - 30 degrees one day and the next 3 degrees C. No one can bear it :) Now it's 12 :) So I didn't leave any comment, but today I am feeling Ok again! And today it's Friday Frills! I have been posting many quotes I came up with, my quotes! on facebook. Wish you could see them - the page is open, you can! Well, today I loved again this Friday Frills - especially the first and last paragraphs... the first one says so much... "what she wants from life, and what she has to give in return"... yes... how many people want want want... and never think about what they can offer to society, the world, people in need (not about money but emotionally). It's a very common thing these days. I hope we can all make a difference! Hope you have an amazing weekend! Thanks for these wise words! denisesplanet,com
