Why It’s Great Being A Woman!

by Sherry Riter in Women Stuff

Live in each season as it passes;
breathe the air,
drink the drink, taste the fruit,
and resign yourself to the influences of each.

~Henry David Thoreau~

I love being alive and a woman! Every day presents a new possibility with endless choices. Today is the beginning of a hectic week, but I am excited to have the opportunity to experience it with a fantastic family. Here is a list of reasons why I think it’s great being a woman:

  • We don’t have to apologize for crying.

  • Men happily hold the door open for us to pass through first.
  • We can spend as much time getting ready and it is just expected.
  • All we have to do is give “the look” and everyone listens.
  • It is A-O-K to get a pedicure.
  • We have no problem matching our clothes.
  • Mowing and the garbage is not considered our normal duties.
  • The world stops when we get hurt.
  • Ooohing and aaahing over flowers and babies is acceptable.
  • All hair lengths are acceptable – short, medium, long and longer.

Take a few minutes to contemplate the joys of being a woman and being in YOUR life.
