Vulnerability is a Need

Women rise to the occasion when we see what needs to be done, and we put ourselves in the position to be it all… the everything to everyone…. I am… the mechanic, the chef. I am the teacher, the banker and financial advisor. Mark me as the lover, the mother, your best friend and your greatest foe.

But at the end of the day, after I tuck the kids in bed, finish washing the dishes, fold the laundry, and feed the dog, I just want to rest my weary head.

I want to be….

Held by protective arms that could combat the worries away.

Free from the terror that my grays might make him stray.

Kissed softly but thrown on the bedtop.

Seen as “sexy enough” that he doesn’t want to stop.

Thanked for the job I’ve done in holding the world together.

Told that I am loved deeply and that my love has made him better.

Let me tell you… these are the things a woman needs. A simple list to end her day. To feel a little less alone. To give her strength to do it all again tomorrow.
