POEM: Woman


I was speechless when I read this. And, I got chills too. The Lord is good and a very wise God.


When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

She must function on all kinds of situations,
She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
She must do all this with only two hands,”
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day”.

THE ANGEL was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman”
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”.

“Can she think?” The Angel asked…
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”.

The Angel touched her cheeks….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”
“She is not leaking…it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angelโ€ฆ

“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel…..
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…

This made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous”.

Lord said.”Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.

Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback
“She often forgets what she is worth”.

Send it to all the women u respect ….๐Ÿ‘

And to all men who respect women ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

W O M A N:
โ— changes her name.
โ— changes her home.
โ— leaves her family.
โ— moves in with you.
โ— builds a home with you.
โ— gets pregnant for you.
โ— pregnancy changes her body.
โ— she gets fat.
โ— almost gives up in the labour room due to the unbearable pain of child birth..
โ— even the kids she delivers bear your name..

Till the day she dies.. everything she does… cooking, cleaning your house, taking care of your parents, bringing up your children, earning, advising you, ensuring you can be relaxed, maintaining all family relations, everything that benefit you.. sometimes at the cost of her own health, hobbies and beauty.

So who is really doing whom a favour?

Dear men, appreciate the women in your lives always, because it is not easy to be a woman.

*Being a woman is priceless*

Happy women’s week!

Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.
Rock the world ladies!
A salute to ladies!


I respect women.

Shutterfly has deals for these 8×8 photo albums all of the time. I FINALLY made one!!! We had a photo session on October 20th for Fall, and I just had to create something with them, and this is what I came up with, along with Thanksgiving cards that I ordered through Vistaprint.

I love paper projects!!!

Here’s our photo album. It only took like two hours to create. You just have to make sure you have all the pictures on hand that you would like to use. It was so much fun and turned out so wonderful!!! I got the promo code after I made a baby purchase at Food Lion.

Here is a link to my Fall Project!:


crafts, handmade, my wedding

My Wedding Decor!! (All handmade)


I have been doing my wedding planning lately!! Today I put my table numbers together. We’re not doing place cards, but I have added the table numbers in for decor. These are all handmade!! I bought some dark brown 12×12 cork boards from Michael’s and layered them (3 layers) into 2×2 blocks. Hot glued them together (in stacks) and punctured the top with the table number pick!


I love them!! Now looking at them, they look like little brownie squares! They already look so perfect next to the mason jar centerpieces; and I haven’t even assembled everything yet!

The top of the picks have my tiffany blue color for the table card numbers, and a black and white damask pattern:


I got these online from David’s Bridal. Of course, mine do not have the silver holder, but instead the tall black sticks I assembled above (top photo). It looks really good! Soo, these table numbers will be placed next to my centerpieces, which are the country mason jars (32oz), with a vanilla candle inside to add a touch of romance.ย At first I was going to have the candles floating in water like the photo below, but now I’m just going to go ahead and use birdseed instead, so my guests may take the jars home as a keepsake.

Here is where I drew my inspiration for my mason jars:


And, here are MY mason jars that I designed and created below!!


(I will be adding the birdseed–no sunflower seeds in the birdseed–in order for the guests to carry these off when they leave. I love the idea of the “floating” candle, but guests will not be able to tote an opened jar of water off with them, that’ll be messy).


It says “Please feel free to take centerpiece jars after the reception. One per guest, please.”

Ahh!!! I’m CRAZY excited!!!,
