Thoughts for a house full of women…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
One friend who always makes her laugh… and one who lets her cry…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
A good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
Eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored…

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE:
A feeling of control over her destiny…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to fall in love without losing herself…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to quit a job, break up with a lover, and confront a friend without ruining the friendship…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
When to try harder… and WHEN TO WALK AWAY…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
That she can’t change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
That her childhood may not have been perfect…but it�s over…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
How to live alone… even if she doesn’t like it…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Whom she can trust, whom she can�t, and why she shouldn�t take it personally…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
Where to go… be it to her best friend�s kitchen table… or a charming inn in the woods…when her soul needs soothing…

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW…
What she can and can�t accomplish in a day… a month…and a year…

    No bra is fine except you might get tired of kicking them out of your road! I liked the list and I hope we are all working toward the goals. We are STRONG. You never know what life has in store for you but need to do the best that you can. Nana

    A friend sent this and I liked it. Some hard lessons to learn but what growth they provide. Shall we all be STRONG WOMEN! (Don’t know about the black bra thing- no bra sounds good!).
