Being a Woman

Being a woman...
I honor that I am sometimes
{well almost always}
too soft.
I embrace who I am.
I take pride when I say No.
I pray that I am forever strong.

Life blooms in complete fullness.
Sometimes beautiful
&
sometimes not so beautiful~

Being a woman is most magical.
Just like a pearl...
as we are tumbled through it all,
regardless, we can only shine~
As time polishes us
all we will know how to do, is to
~R a d i a t e~

Have a week that is
nothing but
Beautiful!!!

  7. What gorgous photos and sentiments, dear Janet. Being a woman in this society is quite challenging, as well All know. And the women that can do it ALL that we do and still mantain everything with dignity, class, and thoughtfulness truly stand out to me. These are called "Superwomen" to my son and to me. Well, because everyone he loves is a hero (Batman, Spiderman, Luke Skywalker, etc...). But, any woman that maintains her sanity in this crazy world and still has time to think of someone else with grace and compassion is a superhero to me. That would be you, my Mom and a very few handful of exceptional and special women in my life. These are true gems to be cherished.

  12. Dear Janet,
    Aren't pearls just one of the most amazing things ? I can never believe that those beautiful, spherical, lustrous orbs, emerge from such rough shells !!

  13. Dearest Janet,

    Yes, being a woman is definitely magical. Many of us even have had the privilege of experiencing the maturation of our children in our womb and then we get the joy of holding our dear children close to us in our bosom--a safe and comforting place.
    Another thing I love about being a woman is our soft, soothing voices, and-of course- wearing pink, ruffles, flowers, and dresses!
    This post is just beautiful-from a beautiful woman-You!

  18. Thank you for this post, and for these pictures. You inspired me to arrange some of my pearls in a shell - and to display this on my old "Sécretaire" - it looks phantastic....
    Your entire Blog is very inspiring - kind regards, Martina
