A Woman Should Have... old love she can imagine going back to - and one who reminds her how far she has come.

...enough money within her to move out and rent a place of her own even if she never wants to or needs to.

...something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour.

...a youth she's content to leave behind.

...a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age.

...a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra. friend who always makes her laugh, and one who lets her cry.

...a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family.

...eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored.

...a feeling of control over her destiny.
