So, a bit of a sequel to the One Flaw in Women post. A friend asked for a serious attempt at an equivalent one for men, so I resisted the urge to guffaw and make some rude comment about it being very short, or only one flaw? and set about the task of making a serious attempt. Us girls always love to malign our counterparts but it's good to remind ourselves just why we love them so much.
Men have strengths that amaze women.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards..
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Men come in all shapes, sizes and colours.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a man is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Men have vital things to say and everything to give.
However, if there is one flaw in men, it is that they forget their worth.
Wow, would you look at that. Men and women aren't so different after all. So look into the eyes of your beloved and know you are looking at yourself, except your beloved sees so much more in you than you do in yourself.
For posterity... - Ok, so this blog entry is more for me than you, so feel free to skip over the boring bits. To make it easier, I'll make the non-boring bits *red*. So the ...
