Women 

I’m not sure I’ve mentioned this before but I count myself mightily blessed to be a woman. 

I didn’t think so when I was a little girl who, back then, couldn’t go to Cubs cause that was just for boys. And it was immodest to tree climb or swing to high in a dress, among other things. I thought I was awefully hard done by having to be a girl. I hadn’t really changed my mind till I met and married a certain cowboy. 

It does seem like I, or any woman should feel priveledged to be a woman, what with going through periods, childbirth, and menopause. None of them without a pretty big downside.  But as I have learned they are necessities in our partnership with God to bring precious sons and daughters into the world. In the end they are a small price to pay for the opportunity to be a mother. I love being a mom. Also not without its heartaches but again, so worth it. 

Today I’m thinking about something else, the privilege of associating with other women. I stand in awe of so many whose courage and kindness astound me. Their examples comfort and inspire. 

It is my greatest sadness that so many are treated so badly.

Such a brave young women. I pray daily for women in the world who face terror and abuse everyday of their lives.

  1. Standing together, supporting each other is how overcome.

  2. There are so many women in this world who are the victims of male domination. The majority of the world cultures, in fact. Even though we live in North America we are still at risk of these cultures becoming common place here. I am glad I am getting old.
