The attributes of men and women

The InboxI received this many years ago; back in my college days to be sure. I have no idea who passed it on to me, but some one did. Well, the other day it emerged from a pile of stuff in my room and as I read it, I was reminded of what my anonymous source told me. What I do know is that Bob Giriffin sent this along somewhere, because his name is in the signature! For the record, I had not even the slightest idea of Bob Griffin's existence until I joined Sharper Iron

Without further adieu, the attributes of men and women:

Women have strenghts that amaze men.

They carry children, they carry hardships, they carry burdens, yet 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.

Women wait by the phone for a "safe at home" call from a friend after a snopwy drive home. They are child care workers, executives, attorneys, stay-at-home moms, biker babes, and your neighbors. They wear suits, jeans, and uniforms.

They fight for what they believe in. They stand up against injustice. They walk and talk the extra mile to get their kids into the right schools and to get their family the right healthcare! They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

Women are honest, loayal, and forgiving. They are smart; they know that knowledge is power, but they still know how to use their softer side to make a point.

Women want to be the best for their family, their friends, and themselves. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They have sorrow at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes. They live in houses, apartments, and cabins. They drive, fly, walk, run, or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!

Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends.

All they want in return is a hug, a smile and for you to do the same for people you come into contact with.

Men are good at lifting heavy things and killing bugs.
