A Little Ditty

I give my dogs a bath in the tub and bending over hurts my back. I finally got smart and bought a cheep shower head with a long hoes that you can pick up. This will make it so much easier. Mom bought the last shower head we had before this one and had one of the renters down stairs put it on for her. Well I put it on by myself with out any help. See, I can read, have a college degree, and read the instructions. I felt empowered doing it by myself. I started singing this song with a few changes. Here's the little ditty:

I am woman hear me roar!
I don't need a man no more!

The great thing is, this is exactly how I feel. I won't say "I've given up" or "I don't care anymore" as that seems to say I have a lack of faith. I have faith. I trust Heavenly Father. He's always taken care of me in the past and will in the future. I just don't feel the incessant worry that I used to feel or even the occasional worry and anxiousness when a man would pop up. I read a scripture last night that summed it all up. 1 Nephi 9:6

But the Lord knoweth all things from the beginning; wherefore, he prepareth a way to accomplish all his works among the children of men; for behold, he hath all power unto the fulfilling of all his words. And thus it is. Amen.

Good for you! And just for the record, having a man around doesn't mean you wouldn't have to install that shower head yourself anyway! Trust me, I've had to build bookcases and do home repair and all kinds of stuff that I thought a husband would do (who knew husbands get busy...and I'd get impatient??!!). You are awesome - man or no man!
