Bonding with friends

I had a great time today despite the bad weather. It was raining with thunderstorm this morning when I went to attend my language workshop class (ESL). Good thing was (again) my Japanese friend called me up so I can ride with them going to the venue. We all live on the same area in the complex so I only walked going to my friend's parking area. After our class we had lunch at a Mongolian Grill & B-B-Q with our Instructor. The food was great and we had a grand time talking just about anything. After lunch our Instructor brought us to an Indian grocery store right beside the resto just to check what is in store. On our way to our apartment complex my friend invited me to their unit. We continued our chatting over some desserts and cups of hot Japanese green tea. Very suitable drink for a cold weather and digestion of our food intake. It was my first time to go out along with non-Filipino friends. Our conversation focused on general things. Life here in the US and life in our respective country. It was really nice sharing some thoughts and exchanging informations about each others culture. It was also nice to experience a Japanese hospitality. I know it was only the beginning of more bonding time together with them =)

Boosting Women's Self Esteem

Since I had a great tete-a-tete with wonderful women, I would like to share this very nice story that a friend of mine forwarded to me. It answers the question "Why Women Cry?"

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told him."I don't understand," he said. His Mom just hugged him and said, "And you never will."

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?

"God said:"When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world,yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."

"You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."
