Why women cry (don't laugh)
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
"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 prayed to God who would surely know the answer. When God responded he asked,
"God, why do women cry so easily?"
God said: "When I made the woman she had to be to be made 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,
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 lastly, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers and only hers exclusively
to use whenever she needs it. She needs no reason, no explanation, its hers."
"You see my son," added 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."
