Monday Mottoes – #148

women-rolesWomen are great multi-taskers, whether in the home or in the office. We’re able to handle a number of things happening at the same time, on a variety of fronts. That’s just how it happens.

Guys, not so much.

It’s so-and-so’s birthday? A going-away or retirement party? Proposals to be written, spreadsheets prepared, a meeting called. An oil change on the car, new carpeting installed, and a parent-teacher conference? Pants to be hemmed, bedding to be washed, dinner to be prepared. Power-point presentations, research undertaken, schedules maintained.

Somehow, women do it all. We rise early and stay up late. It’s not like women can just ignore things that need to be accomplished. A crying child, a demanding job. We keep a lot of fires burning and support so many simultaneously.

Which brings us to today’s quote:gracekelly

“Women’s natural role is to be a pillar of the family.” ~Grace Kelly

I would agree, as long as we include.… And a pillar in the community, and in the office, and in the congregation, and in the school….

We hold things up, not in the delaying sense, but in the supporting sense.  Some believe that pillars play secondary roles, but  the pillar can stand on its own, too.  We’re strong, we’re tough, we can handle it because we’re designed to be pillars. So stand tall, ladies!

Happy Monday, everyone!
