The Women



Participating in Gypsy Mama's 5-minute Friday writing prompt. This weeks topic: The Women

Start:

Women, the heartbeat of their home. They set the tone. Contribute either chaos or calm, or some mix in between. We nurture. We love. We maintain. How many ways do we make every day special? We support. We make sacrifices-doing things we don't always want to do because there is benefit for our spouse, our children. We have soft sides, but can be hard when necessary. Each of us is unique, different, our own person. Our society isn't always kind to us-doesn't always recognize our contributions as worthwhile. Places unrealistic demands on us.

Stop.

I would have liked to see what would have come out if you had continued writing for another five minutes. I feel that the last couple of sentences were beginning to move into a deeper place, a place that is in juxtaposition to the first lines you wrote. Isn't it interesting that women give and sacrifice and make lives better for their families and communities....and, "Our society isn't always kind to us-doesn't always recognize our contributions as worthwhile. Places unrealistic demands on us."
