The strength and power of humanity, particularly the sweetness of a good woman's face, is able to wear away the hardness of life - even turn a cold, stone, ugly structure into an inviting place. This is what children and men are looking to find at the end of the day - the essence of the human spirit longs for this comfort, peace, love, security, warmth ~ the soul of a good woman possesses this innate gift ~ a gift that creates life-time memories for those in her world. It is an art form, as surely as is a sculpture or painting.
