A WOMAN IS LIKE A TEA BAG – YOU CAN’T TELL HOW STRONG SHE IS UNTIL YOU PUT HER IN HOT WATER

THIS QUOTE SAYS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WOMEN AND THEIR POTENTIAL. WOMEN’S RESILIENCE, ENDURANCE, AND PROTECTIVE AND NURTURING NATURE MAKE FOR A FIERCE COMMITMENT TO FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND COMMUNITY CAUSES.

THERE ARE SO MANY STORIES OF WOMEN WHO ARE SHINING EXAMPLES OF GETTING INTO TOUGH SITUATIONS AND PERSEVERING TO A LEVEL OF STRENGTH THAT SHE HERSELF DOESN’T EVEN KNOW SHE HAS.

>CHILDBIRTH IS THE EASY PART. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU HAVE A CHILD WITH SETBACKS AT BIRTH, AND THE SURVIVAL OF THAT CHILD IS HANGING BY A THREAD AND IT IS MONTHS BEFORE A REAL OUTCOME IS KNOWN? YOU KNOW THAT WOMAN SPENDS EVERY MINUTE BY HER CHILD UNTIL A SAFE PLACE IS REACHED. WHAT ABOUT THE CHILD THAT IS BORN WITH A DEBILITATING CHILDHOOD AFFLICTION THAT BECOMES A DISABILITY, WHO HAS LITTLE HOPE FOR PROGRESSING TO A NORMAL CHILDHOOD? YES, THE MOTHER IS BY THAT CHILD’S SIDE DAY AFTER DAY, INVOLVED IN THE NUANCES OF EVERY BIT OF LIMITED PROGRESS, AND PROCEEDS AS IF THERE IS HOPE. HOW ABOUT THE AFGHANI WIDOW OF THE TALIBAN WHO IS TREATED AS LESS THAN A STREET DOG, WHO STRUGGLES TO FIND FOOD, MEDICINE AND EDUCATION FOR HER CHILDREN BY SECRETLY LEARNING HOW TO WEAVE TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN?

WHAT ABOUT THE WOMAN WHO IS AN IMMIGRANT, WHO CLEANS 10 APARTMENTS A WEEK TO FEED HER KIDS AND PAY THE RENT? THIS SINGLE MOM IS TAKING CARE OF SEVERAL CHILDREN, WORKING SEVEN DAYS A WEEK WHILE MAKING SURE SHE GOES TO PARENT TEACHERS’ MEETINGS, AND CAN BUY CLOTHING FOR HER CHILDREN SO THEY FEEL INTEGRATED INTO THE CULTURE OF THEIR COMMUNITY. AND HOW ABOUT THE 50 YEAR OLD WHO IS MANAGING HER PARENTS’ HEALTH CARE, PAYING FOR HER KIDS’ COLLEGE TUITIONS, AND REINVENTING HER LIFE SINCE THE WORK PLACE HAS CHANGED? OH AND BY THE WAY, HER HUSBAND IS REINVENTING HIMSELF WITH SOMEONE 20 YEARS YOUNGER.

THIS LIST COULD GO ON AND ON BUT YOU KNOW THAT EACH WOMAN, WITH ENDURANCE AND RESILIENCE WILL PERSEVERE BECAUSE SHE KNOWS THERE ARE ALWAYS PEOPLE DEPENDING ON HER. HER NURTURING AND PROTECTIVE NATURE WILL ALWAYS MAKE FOR A FIERCE COMMITMENT TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
