Created to be Amazing!

eve.jpgBy the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime.

An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

The Lord answered: "Have you seen my spec sheet on her....? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart - and she will do everything with only two hands."

The angel was astounded. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."

“No," the Lord protested. "I'm so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she's sick AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord.

"Yes, she IS soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."

Then the angel noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into her."

"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

"It's her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride," said the Lord.

The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!

Women come in all shapes, sizes and colours, but they have many things in common. We have strengths that amaze men. We bear many hardships and carry heavy burdens, but we also hold happiness, love and joy in their hearts. We smile when we want to scream. We sing when we want to cry. We cry when we are happy and laugh when we are nervous.

We fight for what they believe in. We stand up to injustice. We don't take "no" for an answer when we believe there is a better solution. We go without so our family can have. We go to the doctor with a frightened friend. We love unconditionally. We cry when our children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.

We are happy when they we about a birth or a wedding. Our hearts break when a friend dies. We grieve at the loss of a family member, yet we are strong when we think there is no strength left. We know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

We drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much w care about you. Our hearts are what makes the world keep turning.

We bring joy, hope and love.

We have compassion and ideals.

We give moral support to their family and friends.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.


If we have one flaw, it’s that we often don't realise our own worth.
