This was sent to me on my space page by a dear friend in Calif. It brought tears to my eye when I read it.  The real mother is in these lines.In between the lines are many diamonds of wisdom. Please read and think about your “mother, grandmother, etc. It applies to all of them. THE TITLE COULD ALSO BE CHANGED TO ” WHY MOTHER’S CRY” 😦

“Why 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 and said,

‘And 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 say,

The little boy grew

up and became a man,

still wondering why women cry,

Finally he put in a call to God,

When God got on the phone, he asked,

‘God, why do women cry so easily?’

God said: ‘When I made the 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 her

child has hurt her very badly,

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, but sometimes tests

her strengths and her resolve to stand

beside him unfalteringly,

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed,

This is hers exclusively to use

whenever it is needed,’

‘You see my son,’ said God,

‘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,’
