Being Female is Like the Moon
On a blog I was reading the other day the blogger was remarking about not being able to figure women out. On another there was a dear soul having a bad day.......like we women tend to have from time to time, myself as you may have read, definately included.
This got me to thinking today......
We are "woman". And that being is full of complexities. Like it or not, for some reason we were made that way.
We are likened to the Moon in that each day our body changes.....our mood changes.
Like the tides that are pulled by the Moon , so too are we pulled... it sometimes seems.
To our beloved mates we seem full of contradictions, full of mystery. We are the "unknown".
But how glorious it is to be woman. We are the nurturers of this world. "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world" as the saying goes.
We`ve been given the gift of fruitfulness, compassion, creativity, passion and intuition.
Oh, the pity that "woman" must wait until the autumn and winter of her life to know the fullness and wisdom of womanhood and to reveal that jewell that had been shaping inside.The raw material slowly uncovering a ruby as the years go by. And the inner battle as this occurs my dear sweet female friends, is only us all still chipping away, trying to fully reveal that gem.
We women and the Moon......well, that`s my best reasoning.
Mysterious, complex, secretive, beautiful, enticing , brilliant....... things not being quite what they seem to our poor other halves at times, glowing one minute, shadowy the next, changing.........ever changing..........
