Before anyone attempt to take off their shoes (especially those who’re wearing high heels) to head shot me, this post is not meant to offend any females but to remind everyone about the sacrifices that women made. Of course, I’m not trying to condemn men here so please don’t start any unnecessary flame wars if you may.
I took this article from some random chain mail and thought it is meaningful enough to share around so I don’t hold any copyrights on the creation of this story.
One day, a little boy asked his mother “Why are you crying?”.
“Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said.
The little boy’s mother hugged him and replied, “And you never will.”
His mum just hugged him and said, ‘And you never will’
Later on, the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seems to cry for no reason?”
“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could answer.
Eventually, the little boy grew up and became a man – still wondering why women always cry.
Finally, he put in a call to God and asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?”
God smiled and said:
“When I made the woman, she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; Gentle enough to give comfort.”
“I gave her an inner strength to endure child birth and the rejection that comes from her children numerously.”
“I gave her patience which allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, to take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.”
“I gave her the sensitivity to love her children unconditionally under all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her badly.”
“I gave her strength to forgive her husband’s faults and the fortitude to protect her husband’s heart.”
“I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her resolve and courage to stand beside him unfalteringly.”
“And finally, I gave her tears to shed and this is exclusively for her to use it whenever it is needed.”
“You see, the beauty of a woman is neither in the clothes she wears, the figure she carries, nor the way she combs her hair.”
“The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the door way to her heart and the shelter in which love resides.”
