Children grow up.
Love waxes and wanes.
Jobs come and go.
Colleagues forget favours.
Men don’t call when they say they will.
Women are there,
no matter how much time
and how many miles are between you.
A woman is never further
away, than needing her, can reach .
When you have to walk that lonesome
valley and you have to walk it for yourself,
your girlfriends will be on
the valley’s rim,
cheering you on,
praying for you,
pulling for you,
intervening on your behalf,
and waiting with open arms at the valley’s end.
Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you.
Or come in and carry you out.
The world wouldn’t be the same without them.
(Ek kan ook dieselfde van my manlike maters sê!)
Ek voel bietjie beter vandag … thanx!
