From the Editor - LOCALS... today's women

I love being a girl.  I do, I do, I love being a girl. 

I love the shoes:  high heels, flats, boots, sandals, flip flops, tennis shoes.  I love the makeup: 
lipsticks, eye shadows, eye liners, mascara, bronzers.  I love the clothes: 
dresses, pjs, jeans, t-shirts, baby doll tops.  I love the jewelry:  rings, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and did I mention BLING?

I love the smells:  home cooking, flirty perfumes, warm yummy candles.  I love the hair products:  shampoos, conditioners, hairsprays, flat irons.  And I love the love: 
slow sweet kisses, playful fighting, hugs, cuddling, the silence, the passion, the love.

As much as I enjoy being a girl, there are a few things that can make our life a bit stressful.  As "girls" we deal with a lot.  Most of us are born with a motherly instinct and want to save the world.  And as we grow up, we realize this is not realistic.  It's in our nature to take care of things.  Somethings more than others.  I love to cook and yes, even clean.  And I like things done a certain way.  I guess I learned that from my mother.  Little things like, the way towels are folded and the cleaning products she used... I had a mental note of these things when I moved out of their house in to my own.  I still do some of the things the way mom use to but, now I have my own way of doing things, too.  I guess it's true what they say... "like mother, like daughter."
There is a softer side to us girls.  We usually wear our hearts on our sleeve and secretly love to receive.  I'm not talking about tangible things, although they are nice.  Receiving a "thank you" or a hug can make our day.  We don't do things to get praise but we also like them to be noticed every once in a while.  And ever so often I think we deserve mental health day which includes a day in our pjs with our hair in a ponytail, under a blanket on the couch watching chick flicks and eating chocolate.  This one simple day can change our attitudes and make us see things in a different light. 

Men say they don't understand women and I agree, we can be complicated.  But ask any man and they will tell you more times than not, they couldn't handle being a girl.  God knew what he was doing when he chose who would be male and female.  We put up with a lot being a girl, but we also have great rewards that comes with it.  Most of us are daddy's girls and then grow up to marry the man of their dreams.  And some will experience what all mothers have gone through, the birth of their first child.  With that gift from God, it is the gift that keeps on giving. 

I love being a girl.  In my lifetime, I have experienced a lot of things that only girls get to go through and I look forward to all the others.
