I believe that it takes a woman to make a man. I am a firm believer that the measure of a man is in how well he can please a woman. I believe these things because I am a very happy man, and all that I am, all that I have accomplished, is because of the women in my life.
All my life, the most influential people in my life, the most loving people, caring people, and reliable people have almost all been women.
I was raised by a single mom starting at the age of seven. My mothers deeply affectionate love, wisdom, and strength made me the man I am today. A man who is very emotional, and feels love very deeply, affectionately. A man of passion. This love, this passion, has brought me more riches in this life than I could have acquired via any other means.
My amazing wife has given me a life of joy. She motivates me, gives me purpose, support, and picks me up when I am down. She is the angel that saves me from self-doubt. She also happens to be the best mother I have ever seen.
My second mother (mother in law) has also been a pillar of support for me. She has, and continues to assist me in many sensitive matters. She gives her love and time to me freely. When my mother was stricken with Alzheimer’s disease, she stepped up to the plate to assist me in all matters with my mom. She also was quick to fill the role that my mom can no longer fill for me. She is a saint. One of Gods special chosen.
My daughter. My purpose. My little perfect angel. She picks up where my mom left off. How is it that all the love and affection I give to her, she gives right back to me? She keeps none for herself. He fills me up in a way I cannot describe. She is only four, and already we have our own relationship between just the two of us. We are besties forever.
God saw fit to spoil me yet a fifth time by bringing someone into my life who came during a time when I felt my minimalist writing en devours were futile. She came to me as a big fan of my work and offered to assist me with getting my message to the masses. This muse has given me renewed faith in my message. She is helping me with this blog, and is playing other key roles in getting my message of minimalism out. I think of her now as my sister.
Women are the most beautiful thing this life has to offer a man. They are givers, nurturers, lovers, and companions. Do not ignore or reject them, embrace them. Do not take them for granted, compliment them. LOVE them. I assure you, all the love you give a good women will come back to you three-fold.
So to all the good women of the world, I am in awe of your beauty and power. I love all of you.
