Womanhood is a blessing.  But let’s face it, womanhood doesn’t always feel like such a wondrous gift from above.   Womanhood can actually feel overwhelming, mundane, and even downright exhausting at times!  There’s just so many demands and hats to wear!  Sometime’s Woman Work leaves us feeling more like robots or not-so-merry-maids.  It’s difficult to pause and smile when Woman Work leaves us feeling like running away.

So what are we to do?

Pause, breathe, and smile anyway!


Woman Work

by Maya Angelou

I’ve got the children to tend
The clothes to mend
The floor to mop
The food to shop
Then the chicken to fry
The baby to dry
I got company to feed
The garden to weed
I’ve got shirts to press
The tots to dress
The can to be cut
I gotta clean up this hut
Then see about the sick
And the cotton to pick.

Shine on me, sunshine
Rain on me, rain
Fall softly, dewdrops
And cool my brow again.

Storm, blow me from here
With your fiercest wind
Let me float across the sky
‘Til I can rest again.

Fall gently, snowflakes
Cover me with white
Cold icy kisses and
Let me rest tonight.

Sun, rain, curving sky
Mountain, oceans, leaf and stone
Star shine, moon glow
You’re all that I can call my own.
