The words WOMAN and FAMILY are actually synonymous with each other, inseparable so to speak.
From the most earliest times, as far as history goes, women have always been given the secondary place, only because she is physically weaker than her male counterpart. Nevertheless that has never stopped her from emerging out as a winner, whenever a challenge is thrown in her path.
God has blessed her with immense amount of resilience and this one quality has kept her going in life relentlessly, no matter how dreary the circumstances might have been. As a matter of fact, RESILIENCE should be the middle name of every woman.
A woman is a magical amalgam of love, tenderness, courage and endurance. She can be a supportive sister to her siblings who need a best friend to confide into or a shoulder to cry on. She can become a backbone of the house to help her parents financially, to make both ends meet. A loving mother, who’s warmth and kind words fill your days with peace and happiness. An understanding wife who stands by you like a pillar through all the thick and thin in.
I’m not saying all this because I’m a woman myself. No. But famous personalities, people whom I have witnessed and my years of experience have only testified that our families would definitely be incomplete without a woman. I call her the heartbeat of our homes.
She has it in her to keep her children grounded and remind them of their duties and responsibilities, with love and sometimes maybe with a little scolding. She is the cement of the house that binds all relationships together.
A woman can easily take up multiple roles without flickering an eyelid. She is the roof of security, walls of warmth and roots of love. Moreover, all this is not because of the work she does at home, for that you can have a maid or keep a cook. It’s not even because she steps out of the house to earn money.
It’s about her nature, her golden heart and for the type of person she is. An epitome of love and sacrifice. She has the strength in her to forgive and forget, however gigantic the mistake might be. For a woman, family is not just important, it’s her everything, her heart and soul resides in it.
Of course there are a mix lot of people in this world and you may have come across women who are just the opposite. But here we are talking about the majority. Women as she is carved by nature.
I once overheard someone say to his son,
“I pray to die before your mom. She’ll survive without me, but God forbid if she goes first, I won’t be able to live without her.”
I’d like to end with these two beautiful quotes which summarise all about who and what a woman is:
A woman is like a tea bag; you never know how strong it is until it’s in hot water. | Eleanor Roosevelt
You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation. | Brigham Young
