Women are made for long haul ….

Mom’s are always the best and will always be no 1.

Mom and Dad were watching TV when Mom said, “I’m tired, and it’s
getting late. I think I’ll go to bed.” She went to the kitchen to make

sandwiches for the next day’s lunches, rinsed out the popcorn bowls,
took meat out of the freezer for supper the following evening, checked

the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and
bowls on the table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next
morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of
clothes into the wash, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She
picked up the game pieces left on the table and put the telephone book

back into the drawer. She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket
and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for
the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher,
counted out some cash for the field trip, and pulled a textbook out
from hiding under the chair. She signed a birthday card for a friend,
addressed and stamped the envelope and wrote a quick note for the
grocery store. She put both near her purse. Mom then washed her face
with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution & age fighting
moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.

Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.” “I’m on my way,”she


She put some water into the dog’s dish and put the cat outside, then
made sure the doors were locked. She looked in on each of the kids and

turned out their bedside lamp, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks

in the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still
doing homework.

In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next
day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6
most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized

the accomplishment of her goals.

About that time, Dad turned off the TV and announced to no one in
particular. “I’m going to bed.” And he did…without another thought.

Anything extraordinary here? Wonder why women live longer…? CAUSE
