love your mother
why are you crying, a young boy asked his mom?
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, but that"s ........
later the little boy asked his father,
why does mom 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 and when god got back to him, he asked god, why do women cry so easily?
when i made woman,
i decided she had to be special.
i made her shoulders
strong enough to carry
the weight of the world, yet,
made her arms gentle enough to give comfort...
i gave her the inner strength
to endure childbirth
and the rejection
that many times will come
even from her own children.
i gave her a hardness
that allows her
to keep going and take care
of her family and friends,
even when everyone else gives up, through sickness and fatigue without
i gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances. even when her child has hurt her badly....
she has the very special power to make a child"s boo-boo feel better and to quell a teenager"s anxieties and fears....
i gave her strength to care for her husband, despite faults
and i 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....
for all of this hard work,
i also gave her a tear to shed.
it is hers to use
whenever needed and
it is her only weakness....
when you see her cry,
tell her how much you love her, and all she does for everyone, and even though
she may still cry, you will have made her heart feel good.
she is special!
please send this to women you know, and those with mothers,
sisters, and special women in their lives.
but, also send this to men so they will understand about what a wonderful thing a woman is.
each day is a mountain that must be climbed; with courage each step gets easier.
love your mother always
and keep her smiling
