    The Woman

    When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day.
    An angel came by and said, “Why spend so mush time on that one?”
    And the lord answered, “Have you seen all the specification I have to meet to shape her?”

    “She must be washable, but not made of plastic, have more than 200 moving parts which all must be replaceable and she must function on all kinds of food, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart and she must do all this with only two hands.”

    The angel was impressed. “Just two hands....impossible!" "Is this the standard model?" “Too much work for one day...wait until tomorrow and then complete her.”

    “I will not,” said the Lord. “I am so close to competing this creation, which will be the favorite of my heart.” “She cures herself when sick and she can work 18 hours a day.”

    The angel came nearer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.”

    “She is soft,” said the Lord, “But I have also made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.”

    “Can she think?” the angel asked.

    The Lord answered, “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”

    The angel touched the woman’s cheek...“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”

    “She is not’s a tear” the Lord corrected the angel.

    “What’s it for?” asked the angel.

    And the Lord said, “Tears are her way of expressing grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”

    This made a big impression on the angel; “Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. The woman is indeed marvelous!”

    Indeed she is! Woman has strengths that amazes man. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens. She holds happiness, love and opinions. She smiles when feeling like screaming. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when she is happy and laughs when she is afraid.

    She fights for what she believes in. Stands up against injustice. She doesn’t take “no” for an answer, when she can see a better solution. She gives herself so her family can thrive. She takes her friend to the doctor is she is afraid. Her love is unconditional.

    She cries when her kids are victorious. She is happy when her friends do well. She is glad when she hears of a birth or a wedding.

    Her heart is broken when a next of kin or friend dies. But she finds the strength to get on with life. She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.

    There is only one thing wrong with her...She forgets what she is worth!

    This story was sent to me in a River Songs card from my dad.

    Thank you, Dad. It means a lot to me. I love you.

    I thought it was a very touching (and true) statement about women. If not biblically correct. LOL.

    Gerry, this was beautiful, and thank you for sharing that. I think in day-to-day struggles, we as women tend to forget sometimes what we are capable of.
