Woman have special feminine treasures within themselves and that is the ability to learn from each other and live as examples and role models for generations to come. I have learned a lot from my mother and grandmother by just observing them in my life, they may think they have not invested or given me much - as any caring mother may think that whatever she gives or does is never enough for her child or grandchild- they have given me much more by just being who they really are…by just being a woman, and to be a woman needs courage armed with love, compassion and faith. They have branded the concept of how to be woman in my mind, heart and soul.
When woman take the time to nourish one another and exchange their gifts, the fruits that comes from those lives are amazingly rich. It is simply amazing how a group of women when they gather up to comfort a friend who is going through difficult times, cry and laugh together, hold one another when there are no words to say or simply gather in groups to pray… the whole room will be charged with healing power and strength. It is equally amazing for me to see that men envy this ability to nurture and console one another as women do, they do not relate as we do and wish they could. However, women often forget that men learn from women how to treat a woman, and our relationships with one another set the standard of treatment for men to follow. Our character is judged by how much integrity we have toward one another and how collectively we stand up for one another. For example, If we assist men in being unfaithful by entering into adulterous relationships with them, they will feel that their behavior is acceptable, now imagine if all women refused infidelity men would actually straighten up. Or if women refused to talk about one another, sabotage one another and destroy one another with looks, words and attitudes, you would see men lining up, treating us as they should…If we don’t respect ourselves, and our sisters around us it is guaranteed that we will attract disrespectful man…and everything starts with a drop of unconditional womanly compassion for one another and effort to make a change and every day and every minute unnoticeable drop of an effort from our side can fill an ocean of changes in this thirsty world we live in.
