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
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
"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
"I gave her the sensitivity to love her children
under any and all circumstances, even when they hurt
"I gave her strength to carry her husband through
his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect
"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
"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."
