A woman is more

than the beauty she shows
than the clothes she chooses
than the hair she colors

A woman is more

than the roles she holds
than being a dutiful daughter
than being an amazing mom

A woman is more

than the jobs she does
than the accomplished tasks
than the goals achieved

A woman is more

than the words she says
than the feelings she shares
than the thoughts unspoken

A woman is more

than what others believeChristine Morgan
than what others decide
than what others describe

A woman is

a shining soul
filled with life and love
faith and hope
dreams and fears
sorrows and glee

A woman is

a joy to her Creator
for everything she is
just as she is

For a woman is
all that she wants to be

❤ Happy International Women’s Day ❤

Thank you, Amazing Creator
for loving me
in a way
that no human could dothe only perfect love is God's love

For showing me
that I am worthy
of that love

That perfect love.

Yet any and every time
I try to find that perfect love
here on Earth
here in another person

I will be disappointed.

But it’s a reality that
we just can’t love
the way you can

we are flawed
sometimes selfish
often clueless

So I will
stop looking for
perfect love
in people

I will be satisfied
with finding it
only in you

And I will let people
be imperfect in their love
just like me.

Oh glorious Creator,

You love me
when I am feeling (or acting) unlovable.

You hear me
when my thoughts are a jumbled mess.You love me when

You see me
when I try to hide in shame.

You love me
when I am moody and selfish.

You hold me
when I grieve devastating loss.

You protect me
when I am attacked by fear.

You love me
when I am afraid and alone.

You comfort me
when I don’t even know I’m sad.

You know me
when I am a confusing puddle to myself.

You love me
no matter what

I am
awed
amazed
thankful
joyful

that you do.

I ask a question
and you just ignore me
moving into other topics
as if I said nothing

I share an idea
and you just ignore me
I still have worth, outside of you.asking others for feedback
as if I said nothing

I strain
I strive
Aching for you to notice me
Yearning for you to appreciate me

I want you to be proud of me
I want to feel the glow
of “doing good”

But that just isn’t happening.
And it’s not going to happen.

So I need to remember
reality check time

my worth is not determined
by your approval.

My worth is not determined
by how much you like me
by how smart you think I am
by how much I add to the conversation

It may feel a little extreme, but I realize…
You don’t have to like me.
You don’t have to think I’m smart.
You don’t have to want to hear me.

You don’t have to even see me.

I still have worth
outside of you.

On a day that feels
down
tough
rough
draining

We need to remember
to refill
our souls and spirits
with love and hope

We need to remember
our lives
have a purpose and meaning
that we might have lost touch with

We need to remember
that God
has a plan through us
to radiate love

And when things are rough
it’s because I’m trying to do it myself

And when I get drained
it’s because I’m using my own strength

And when things are down
it’s because I’m looking through human lenses

And on those days
I just need to remember
to look up

and my soul
will see
what I need to remember

remember to look up

I remember
the moment of enlightenment
the moment
I first realized
Mom was also
a woman

Just like me

Learning
Growing
Doing the best she can
making the best decisions
she knows how

A child herself
raising children
showing them love
giving them confidence
teaching them faith
believing in their dreams

A woman herself
who laughs and cries
sometimes insecure and unsure
with hopes and dreams
beliefs about life
and all that it’s meant to be

Just like me
mothers day
