The Joys Of Women

A warm quilt
A cup of tea
A cozy chair
A book to read.

Chick flicks
Acting goofy
Soft hands.

New lipstick
Painted toes
Single rose.

Car remote
Blue tubes.
Cell phones
Drive thru's.

Ziploc bags
Dollar stores
Post it's
Pens galore.

Full service
Triple AAA
Oil of Olay.

But the greatest Joy is to give a friend...
A reminder to have a mammogram.

Great reminder. Just came over to wish you a good day [week]. Blessings to you sister.

Rachel said...

Beautiful as always. Love being a woman ;-) and one of the greatest joys is the friendship of other women.

God created us with a unique beauty - may we grow in appreciation of it in ourselves and in others.

What a wonderful way to remind women that having a mammogram is as, and more, important than those things that make our lives enjoyable. I hope your message is heard and heeded.

God bless,

Debbie said...

This was really cute and so true of course. I will be scheduling mine soon. Have a great week. Blessings to you, Debbie

Good morning Lorie,
Love your little poem! I don't know whether or not you receive awards, but I have one for you on my blog if you would like to stop by and pick it up.

I tell you what, I am sure glad I wasn't born a man. I love (almost) everything about being a woman (I wouldn't mind being able to bear children without the drama of menstrual cycles and painful birthing). As much as I am glad I am not a man, I sure do love my husband, which is also the duty of a woman.

Being a woman is great fun. I'm gonna thank God when I get to heaven for letting me live my life in the old world as a woman.

A neat post ~ Pray for a good report for me, as I'm having one on Wednesday.
