★Phenomenal Women

Dear bminders:

For a moment let’s remember and acknowledge our mom’s, grandma’s and all the women’s role in our lives, since the Holidays are all about family, love and appreciation.

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, “I’m tired, and it’s getting
late. I think I’ll go to bed”.

She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day’s lunches.
Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, took meat out of the freezer for supper
the following evening, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar
container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot
for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the
dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and
secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table,
put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the
drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a
towel to dry.

She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the
desk, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the field
trip, and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair

She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed and stamped the
envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near
her purse.

Mom then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night solution
& age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her

Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.”

“I’m on my way,” she said

She put some water into the dog’s dish then made sure the doors were
locked and the patio light was on.

She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and
TV’s , hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had
a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own
room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day,
straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most
important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the
accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular. “I’m going to bed”

And he did..without another thought.

Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer…?

Cause we are made for the long haul….(and we can’t die sooner, we
still have things to do!!!!)

Peace and long life,


I love this Mary!!!
Thankyou for sharing it with us!
I think I will print it off for my Ma – who is a phenomenal woman!

A full and thankful heart..

i think my mom is the braviest and wonderful woman who has been through hell and has kept her beauty and wonderful spirit.

In response to raven black wolf’s post:

That is soooo cool Raven. It makes me miss my mother even more!! She left us too soon!!

I am living in many dimensions at once; the appearance of being trapped in time and space is only an illusion.

The way my husband describes his gran (his fathers mother) she sounds like she was a phenominal woman.

She had 12 children and as well as caring for them all she also had a job in a clotted cream factory.

She would be working on the land just hours after giving birth and she broke up fights in pubs.

Sadly I never got to meet her as she died 9 years before I met my husband.

enjoy life!
