Why do women Cry
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 Mom just hugged him andsaid, "And you never will." Later the little boy asked his father, "Whydoes mother seem to cry for no reason?" "All women cry for no reason," wasall his dad could say. The little boy grew up and became a man, stillwondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God. When God got onthe phone, he asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?" God said: "When Imade the woman she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough tocarry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort. I gaveher an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that manytimes comes from her children. I gave her a hardness that allows her tokeep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family throughsickness and fatigue without complaining. I gave her the sensitivity tolove her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child hashurt her very badly. I gave her strength to carry her husband through hisfaults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. I gave herwisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimestests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. Andfinally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to usewhenever it is needed." "You see my son," said God, "the beauty of a womanis not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the wayshe combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, becausethat is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides."
