Wednesday Musings - A woman should have……

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ....

...enough money within her control to move out
and rent a place of her own even if she never wants
to or needs to...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ....
something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her
dreams wants to see her in an hour...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ...
a youth she's content to leave behind....

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ....
a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to
retelling it in her old age....

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 its
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...

Yes! *makes note to run out to get a cordless drill*

Great words of wisdom, E.H. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice!!

Wren, you can borrow my cordless drill. Do I get bonus points for having a well-stocked toolbox, including a hacksaw and a corded drill that can drill through concrete?

Tracy on 17 November 2010 at 19:42 said...

That's just wonderful! Thank you so much for posting it.

And of course I LOVE that the tools and the black bra are all together. lol

@Lily.

I thought so as well, it so sums me up..

@Chris..

What sane woman loans her drill out... are you mad woman...

Let Wren get her own drill!!

And you do get points for a well stocked tool box...

Hope you are using them - OFTEN!!!

:)

@Tracy..

You made me giggle with your comment...

I also thought that part was cool as well... a woman in her bare essentials holding a cordless drill...and her screwdriver waiting in the wings.. LOL

How much more sexier could we be!!!!

:)

Blogger ate my previous comment...

I have a well-stocked toolbox, except for the drill. A very nice collection of screwdrivers and wrenches, though. And I have a black bra, but it isn't lacy.

Despite the womanly nature of this post, now I have some amazing pictures forming in my brain - of men in their underwear, wielding all sorts of tools...c

@wren..

I wonder how much of that toolbox is yours and how much is hubs...mmmmm

Make sure you get that drill - then you can claim full ownership of said box..
