Every Woman...

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
how to break up with a lover
and how to 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 one day...
a month...
and a year...

. . . and every once in a while should wear the latter while using one of the former!! There's no reason to be frumpy just because you know how to use the tools. ;-)

Amen to that.

Hope so.

That's a lot of "should's" but good advice. I like the power tools/black lace bra too!
