Every single day I am overcome by the power of women. And I'm not talking about the sleazy kind of power- the kind where physical attractiveness and bawdy attitudes are used to gain control over the opposite sex. I'm talking about the ability women have to understand. To commiserate. To jump in and help when help is needed, often without ever being asked. Maybe I'm just lucky, but most of the women I associate with are warm, compassionate, loving, genuine, gentle, caring, and powerful. The women I know could move mountains.
