Precious Women..!

And as I walked among the ruins of an ancient Roman city yesterday in Turkeye, and looked at the lavish live styles the men led, I asked, “And what about the women?”
“They were treated as inferior!” said my guide sadly.
Nothing’s changed as very often in my mailbox are jokes about women and I do admit I spend a few minutes having a laugh as I did today reading stuff like the ones below:

When we are born, our mother’s get the compliments and the flowers.
When we are married, our brides get the presents and the publicity.
When we die, our widows get the life insurance.
What do women want to be liberated from?

I smiled, nodded and continued reading:

A man was walking down a street when he heard a voice from behind, “If you take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you.” The man stopped and a big brick fell right in front of him. The man was astonished.
He went on, and after a while he was going to cross the road. Once again
the voice shouted, “Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step a car will run over you, and you will die.” The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came careening around the corner, barely missing him.
The man asked. “Who are you?”
I am your guardian angel,” the voice answered.
“Oh, yeah?” the man asked “And where the hell were you when I got married?”

I was really grinning from ear to ear when my eyes fell on something my daughter had sent me and as I read it my grin vanished and tears rolled my cheeks as I realized what humbugs we men are: Read on:

Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, “I’m tired, I think I’ll go to bed.” She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day’s lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning.
She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and telephone book into the drawer. Watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket, hung a towel, yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom.
She stopped by the desk, wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some
cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend, addressed, stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the grocery store. She put both near her bag.
Mum then washed her face and filed her nails. Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.” “I’m on my way,” she said. She put some water into the dog’s dish, put the cat outside, made sure the doors were locked and the outside light on. She looked in on each of the kids, turned out their bedside lamps and radios, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list, said her prayers, visualized the accomplishment of the day and waited for her man who about that time, turned off the TV and announced to no one in particular. “I’m going to bed.” And he did…without another thought..!
“It should have been the women who should have led a lavish life style,” I thought sadly as I remembered the Roman ruins..!

  1. In a land which worships women as a goddess, crimes against women continue which is alarming. Are we the ‘better’ half or the ‘battered’ half? I grew up with ‘God created mothers because he couldn’t be everywhere at the same time.’

  2. Crimes against women continue unabated in this God forsaken country while hypocritically there’s a significant number of goddesses in the form of the feminine gender worshipped.

  3. Jesus showed women importance to teach the men how to love the physically weak gender. Proverbs31 spoke of all the physical tasks she accomplishes despite it. When Martha wanted Mary to help her serve Him more physical food, He told her that man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord by telling her to let her rest at His feet to be fed spirituly by Him which He preferred to feasting on a variety of dishes. Women are buzy serving at home and have no time to write jokes to make men the butt of them. If a woman decides to share the man’s punishment of feeding the family by labouring causing the sweat of his brow to drip down his face, she not only bears children in the labour room as was her punishment but takes on even sharing the financial burden as a helpmate. She discharges her wifely and motherly duties and earns less than a man employed in the office or profession.
