When a Man Loves a Woman

POST FROM 2013

Dear sweet daughter of mine,

It is a normal, healthy desire for a woman to long to be wanted (and I mean really wanted) by a man.  I think it is also normal for a woman to want to feel important, pursued and valued.  There will come a point in your life, when you will have the same desire.  I only hope and pray that you will have learned from my lessons on what not to do or allow in your life. 
 
When a man loves a woman, he will do whatever it takes to make sure that she is happy.  Her happiness is of he utmost importance.  He will work hard to make sure that she feels safe, valued, important and loved.  He will be careful with who he spends time with and he won’t make choices that could harm her heart.  He will protect her heart above all else because the heart is the most important. 
 
When a man loves a woman, he will not leave her for any reason.  He will stay and fight for their love.  He will not look outside of their relationship to seek companionship elsewhere. He wouldn’t need to as he has everything he needs right in front of him.  He wouldn’t waste any time fixing problems and would not want to wait until days later to resolve conflict because he would want to make sure that she knew how valued and loved she was.
 
I hope you see this love in my relationship with Gilad.  I hope that my life story with your dad has not tarnished your feelings towards men and marriage.  That wouldn’t be fair.
 
There is a song that my mom, your Mama, used to love.  It is called, “When a Man Loves a Woman” by Percy Sledge.  I think it was even retooled by Michael Bolton.  You should look it up.

It is a beautiful song about how a man will do anything to show his love to his woman no matter the cost to himself. 

When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothing else
He’ll trade the world
For the good thing he’s found
If she’s bad he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he put her down

When a man loves a woman
Spend his very last dime
Tryin’ to hold on to what he needs
He’d give up all his comfort
Sleep out in the rain
If she said that’s the way it ought to be

Well, this man loves a woman
I gave you everything I had
Tryin’ to hold on to your precious love
Baby, please don’t treat me bad

When a man loves a woman
Down deep in his soul
She can bring him such misery
If she plays him for a fool
He’s the last one to know
Lovin’ eyes can’t ever see

When a man loves a woman
He can do no wrong
He can never own some other girl
Yes when a man loves a woman
I know exactly how he feels
‘Cause baby, baby, baby, you’re my world

When a man loves a woman…..

I love you sweetie!

Mom
