A Day of Sharing Words









A friend & fellow blogger, Minnie at http://herminnie.blogspot.com/ has followed a lead from one of her first teachers, LK Ludwig (http://gryphonsfeather.typepad.com/) LK has suggested November 19th be a day for words. Post a poem that touches you inside or inspires you. This is what I have selected (simple & to the point) & I love it!

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
...who knows where she's going
and will keep on until she gets there;
who knows not only what she wants from life
but what she has to offer in return...
HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who is loyal to family and friends,
who expects no more from others
than she is willing to give;
HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who guides and inspires
not by quoting others philosophies but by living her own good example;
who accepts both victories and disappointments with the same grace,
and who can rise above life's challenges and move on...
HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who gives the gifts of her thoughtfulness,
who shows her caring with a word of support,her understanding with a smile;
a woman who brings joy to others
just by being herself...
