A Woman’s Tears

       “Why are you crying?” he 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”…

  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, the man said,

  “God, why do women cry so easily?”

  God said…“When I made 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 fatigue and sickness

  without complaining…

  I gave her the sensitivity to love her children

  under any and all circumstances,

  even when her child has hurt them 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.

  I gave her a tear to shed

  It’s hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.

  It’s her only weakness…

  It’s a tear for mankind…
