GOLDEN RULE FOR WOMEN................NO COOKING :P

Oil For Your Lamp


The new Golden Rule for women is, "Do Unto Ourselves as We Do Unto Others." In Oil for Your Lamp, the importance of women taking care of themselves BEFORE they take care of others. Today's women are multi-tasking mavens and Oil for Your Lamp provides just the fuel needed to keep your own lamp full. Through real-world stories and original poetry, Oil for Your Lamp is a call to action for women to keep their own lamps burning brightly as they continue to light up the world!......Lisa Hammond and BJ Gallagher ( authors )

WE ARE WOMEN WHO
 LIGHT UP THE WORLD
WITH OUR BEAUTY
OUR CREATIVITY

OUR EYES SPARKLE
AS WE TALK AND LAUGH
AMONG OURSELVES

OUR SMILES RADIATE
WARMTH AND COMFORT
TO THOSE WHO LOVE US

OUR FACES BEAM
HAPPILY WHEN
WE'RE ENGAGED
IN FULFILLING WORK

WE SHINE
WE ILLUMINATE
WE ENLIGHTEN

WE GLOW SOFTLEY
WHEN CONTENTED
AND BURN BRIGHTLY
WHEN PASSIONATE

BUT WHO IS THE KEEPER
OF THE FLAME?.....
WHO WILL FILL
OUR LAMPS?....

WE MUST DO IT OURSELVES
WE MUST FEEL OUR OWN
LAMPS FIRST
NOT LAST...

WE MUST COMMIT TO
OUR OWN WELL BEING
AND SELF CARE LEST
OUR FLAME FLICKERS OUT

SO TAKE SOME TIME
TO REST, RECOUP
RELAX AND REGROUP

TAKE TIME TO FILL
YOUR LAMP
THE WORLD NEEDS YOUR FLAME
BUT FIRST, YOU NEED YOUR
OIL

THE NEW GOLDEN RULE FOR WOMAN IS ...
WE MUST DO UNTO OURSELVES
AS WE DO UNTO OTHERS

simple truths...gift of inspiration...

Happy women's day......

The greatest good you can do for another, is not just share your riches, but reveal to them their own.
