Online groups are gems. They are filled with women and/or men who strive to encourage each other day in and day out. Here's a lovely bit of encouragement geared toward women that I received yesterday entitled "Because":
Just because no one has been fortunate enough to realize
what a gold mine you are, Doesn't mean you shine any less.
Just because no one has been smart enough to figure out
that you can't be topped, Doesn't stop you from being the best.
Just because no one has come along to share your life,
Doesn't mean that day isn't coming.
Just because no one has made this race worthwhile,
Doesn't give you permission to stop running.
Just because no one has realized how much of an
awesome woman you are, Doesn't mean they can affect your femininity.
Just because no one has shown up who can love you on your level,
Doesn't mean you have to sink to theirs.
Just because you deserve the very best there is,
Doesn't mean that life is always fair.
Just because God is still preparing your king, Doesn't mean that
you're not already a Queen.
Just because your situation doesn't seem to be progressing right now,
Doesn't mean you need to change a thing.
Keep shining, keep running, Keep hoping, and keep praying,
Keep being exactly what you are already. COMPLETE!!
Send this on to your female friends who need to keep on doing
what they do best. BEING A WOMAN OF GOD!!!!

So ladies, the next time folks ask you why you're single, don't have a man, are in the situation you're in etc... tell 'em "Because!"
