I am glad you chose to visit! My blog is a compilation of the many hats I find myself wearing. On any given day I may be an encourager, an instructor, or just a lady who is venting. You, dear reader, will probably identify with my triumphs and my tribulations! These snapshots fit into my Life Scrapbook I have named A. McInnis Artworks. I hope you will find something worth your while.

One Aspect of Womanhood

Women are "anticipatory" creatures by nature.
I don't know if that's a real word or not.
Sometimes I make up words to express myself...
that's my point here...

Men see things or people as they are.
Women see things or people as they can become.
Men check things off their to-do list.
When finished, they watch t.v.
A woman's to-do list is never done.
There is always something or someone that needs cleaning,
straightening, "fixing"...

Women anticipate...
they can walk in a room and in 30 seconds
figure out how to "be of help",
how to "speed things up",
how to "make things prettier".
I once had an employer who called me a butterfly.
At any social event, he said I was always fluttering around.

My response was (and still is)...
"That's what women do...they flutter...they see a need
and try to make it better."
It's not all we do, but it's what we do best.
Sometimes our "anticipatory" mode gets us in trouble.
We tend to worry a LOT.
Now I know that it's not a good thing to worry,
but we do.
We know an oncoming train wreck when we see it coming,
and we want our loved ones to avoid it at all costs.
(By the way, men see it as a light at the end of the tunnel.)

Regardless of your lot in life,
99.9% of women are great at spotting needs
 and doing their best to fulfill them.

We women are complex creatures.
But where in the world would the world be without us?
