A Woman's Tears Back   Home  
A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?"

"Because I'm a woman," she told him.

"I don't understand," he said.

His mum just hugged him and said, "And maybe you never will."

Later the little boy asked his father, "Why does Mother seem to cry for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could find to say. The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God, and when God got on the phone, the man asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"

God said: "When I made woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort."

"I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children."

"I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining."

"I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when they hurt her."

"I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart."

"I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife purposely, but sometimes he tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly."

"And so, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."

"You see: The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart -- the place where love resides."
