Recently, I've seen so many articles featuring some great women who became popular in their respective fields. Some are successful business owners, some are those who excelled in the field of arts, politics, theater and movie industry. I was just thinking, how about those ordinary women who do not have a successful career but are just plain people, housewives or simply mothers. Don't they deserve some kind of recognition too?
In this modern times, women are no longer regarded as the weaker sex. They play a vital role in politics, business and the arts. Gone are those days when women were just regarded as ordinary people of lesser importance in our society.
However, on a personal note, women need not excel in any field to stand out. Women have so many inner qualities that were not present in men and yet brings out the uniqueness in them. The power and strenght that resides in women during motherhood is an attribute beyond compare.
The following is an excerpt from a literary piece written in honor of women. I'm sorry but I lost track of the name of the author. I just wanted to share this to inspire all women out there.
Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk and run to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY OFTEN FORGET THEIR WORTH.
