Featuring the tall girl(s) from next door

6'2" Jena has made me bring the "Tall Woman of the month" feature back (would you argue with a woman who is six inches taller than you?).

Jena wrote (back in March of 2007)

"When I was a teenager, I was clutzy. My gangly limbs and feet made me awkward and I banged into furniture regularly. Sometimes I did this in quite embarrassing ways. It was almost as if I couldn’t control my own body. Now that I’m grown up I’m much more comfortable in my own skin. I’ve grown into those long arms and legs that made my teen years so awkward and I actually enjoy being asked by strangers to grab something off a top shelf in the grocery store.

Being tall has its perks, after all."

"Tall women of the world unite! We all have something in common that makes us stand out. I may not always be proud of who I am (as far as my looks are concerned), but you can't change who you are. We're all different and I believe that God made us that way for a reason. One of my favorite poems is "Phenomenal Woman" by Maya Angelou. I think it describes us to a T. Stand tall and stand proud. We are, after all, phenomenal women."
