Beauty of a Woman

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.”
