Here's a glimpse of an overcast sky in the afternoon. This was taken on the same golf country club I mentioned in one of my previous posts. It was getting dark and the air smells of an incoming rain. True enough, it rained soon after this.

Mellow Yellow Monday: Golf Carts

On the same day that we went searching for a good golf country club where my husband can become a member of, we saw this line of golf carts in one of the country clubs we visited.

These golf carts were all lined up real neat. And what's more, they've got a nice shade of yellow in them! Hmm, perfect for a Yellow Mellow Monday entry, eh. So what's a girl got to do? Get her old and trusty camera and snap some pictures, of course.

Do take some time to visit everyone's favorite Monday meme - Yellow Mellow Monday. You'll surely have a nice time seeing different yellows around the globe.

Skywatch Friday: Overcast Skies

An overcast sky. It was quite getting dark at that time and the air smells of an incoming rain.

This was the sky over a large expanse of a golf course - the same golf course we went to when my husband wanted to learn how to play golf. The mountain in the background is Mt. Apo, which is the tallest or highest mountain in the Philippines.

More skies can be seen at Skywatch Friday. Happy Skywatching!

Ruby Tuesday: Flag

My husband wanted to learn how to play golf so we visited this golf club in our city. It's actually close to 10 miles from downtown proper.

While waiting for my husband to finish his business in this golf club, I saw this red flag in the patio. Hmm, I thought it would be perfect for Ruby Tuesday. So I took my good, old, trusty camera and took a snap. So there it goes - my entry for Ruby Tuesday this week!

Don't forget to visit Ruby Tuesday to see more reds.

Why Women Cry

I came across this essay entitled "Why Women Cry". I've had this for years, but I forgot all about it. I came across this again when I was going over my old files last week. I thought I'd share it with you as it's really very nice and touching.

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 unfaltering.

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."
