Strength of a woman

The Man with d Video Cam pays tribute to Marina Lee Abdullah for her sheer grit and courage. 

Love is passionate and deep. It will drive you to do crazy things for each other. But loving a person is actually knowing all his or her faults, knowing the good and the bad and still choosing to be together – that is love.

Many of us do not have first-hand knowledge of what married life entails. But I have thought long and hard about it. And I am ready for whatever it may bring. After all, it brought me three wonderful children.

Many of us should consider ourselves insanely lucky to have found the woman who fits beautifully in our life.

The saddest moment in a married life is when we start to take each other for granted. What more when the little bubbling cuties arrive year after year? Time is stretched unbearably with the unending chores and the circle of friends dwindles to a miserable few. With the grace of God, we will live to be grandparents but most of us will see their children leaving the nest to roost on their own. This is when we have to learn to bear the silence each day without hearing their voices.

Any woman is an inspiration to the heart and gives meaning to all the things in life that are frequently left unexplained. The strength of a woman lies deeply within her soul and it is in the depths of that soul that pain and frustration are often-times hidden. So men will have to salute women for their strength, their power, and the unique abilities that make them what they are. Marina Lee Abdullah is this breed of a woman.

When the inevitable moment comes which makes it seem so hopeless and endless, just stretch out your hand in the dark and you will feel your wife beside you. Her warmth saturates  the lonely air, unseen but soothing. Then, lay your head between her bosom and listen to the medley of her heartbeat vibrating in your ears. It will be a whole new world to feel the love of your woman roaming freely among the myriad stars of your imagination.

Man will never be alone even in the most trying situation because she is always there to stand by him.
