Why Women Cry

tears.jpgA little boy asks his mother: “Why do you cry?”

“Because I'm a woman” she answers.

“I don’t understand” he says.

His mother hugs him and says: “And maybe you never will”

Later the little boy asked his father: “Why does mommy cry?”

“All women cry for no reason,” is all that his father could answer him.

When he became an adult he asked God: “God, why do women cry so easily?”

And God answered:

“When I created woman, she needed to be special. I created her shoulders strong enough to bear the weight of the world … And soft enough to be comfortable. I gave her the strength to give life, the kind that accepts the rejection that often comes from children

"I gave her the strength to allow her to go on when everybody else gives up. The kind that helps her take care of her family, despite illness and fatigue.

“I gave her the sensitivity to love her children unconditionally, even when they have hurt her deeply. I gave her the strength to endure her husband in his faults, and to stay at his side without weakening. And finally, I gave her tears to shed whenever she needs them to be shed.”

“You see my son, the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, nor is it in her face or the way she does her hair. The beauty of a woman resides in her eyes. It is the door to her heart; the place where love resides. Tears are sometimes like a key - they open the door, and let you see directly into her heart...”
