An Inspiration for Women
I recently received a card in which was signed by everyone at my brother's job. Inside the card one of the girls put something that had been given to her. It is very inspiring, it made me cry and I really really think that all the women on this site would appreciate it. Maybe some of you have read it before, but it was a first for me, so enjoy.
One Flaw In Women
By 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?"
And 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 two hands."
The angel was astounded at all the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
That's too much work for one day
Wait until tomorrow to finish Lord."
"But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."
The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But Lord you have made her so soft, Lord."
"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."
The angel then 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 this one."
"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected,
"That's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" The angel asked.
The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride.
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing!"
And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
But they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up for injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear of a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at a loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They will drive, fly, walk, run or write to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
However, if there is one flaw in women,
It is that they forget how much their worth.
I really thought this was inspiring and reminded me of how strong we are and I wanted to share it with all of you.
