Default 5kg appreciation thread

I just want to say openly that I have learned a lot from 5kg over the years about how to handle myself, not just on a forum, but in life in general. She is balanced, level-headed and always pleasant, even when she is feeling less than perfect.

So Babs, I just wanted to take a moment and say thanks in public. You deserve it.

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
...who knows where she's going
and will keep on until she gets there;
who knows not only what she wants from life
but what she has to offer in return...

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who is loyal to family and friends,
who expects no more from others
than she is willing to give;

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who guides and inspires
not by quoting others philosophies but by living her own good example;
who accepts both victories and disappointments with the same grace,
and who can rise above life's challenges and move on...

HERE'S TO THE WOMAN
who gives the gifts of her thoughtfulness,
who shows her caring with a word of support,
her understanding with a smile;
a woman who brings joy to others
just by being herself...

Strong Woman Vs. A Woman of Strength

A strong woman
works out every day to keep her body in shape...

but

A woman of strength

studies to keep her mind in shape... (modified by Chillen)


A strong woman
isn't afraid of anything...

but

A woman of strength
shows courage in the midst of her fear...

A strong woman
won't let anyone get the best of her...

but

A woman of strength
gives the best of her to everyone...

A strong woman
makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future...

A woman of strength
realizes life's mistakes, counts her blessings, and capitalizes on them... (modified by Chillen)

A strong woman
walks sure footedly...

but

A woman of strength
but will catch herself when she falls... (modified by Chillen)

A strong woman
wears the look of confidence on her face...

but

A woman of strength
wears grace...

A strong woman
has faith that she is strong enough for the journey...

but

A woman of strength
has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong...

Babs! She's always got some new idea. Something well thought out, and well spoken, and well executed. I've learned a lot from you. Don't go anywhere on us, we'd miss you!

Thanks guys, this means a lot (though I won't get all soppy or overly emotional, it's not my style, not on the forum anyway ); I have considered leaving the forum, well, I've been considering leaving a couple of forums for several reasons, none of which involve members in any way.

I just gotta work through a few things, a lot going on at the moment, but I will more than likely stay even if I post a little less, overall.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
