In a turmoil,
In a pain excrutiating,
Seeking a shoulder,
Seeking a friend,
I found him...
In love with me
Said something simple,
Just asked me to feel,
To accept and be concious,
And I am relieved of my pain!
He wrote to me:
Here is something I picked up from somewhere and wanted
to share with you.
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 only two hands."
The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two
hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.Wait until tomorrow
"But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to
finishing this creation that is so close to my own
heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND
can work 18 hour days."
The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But
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
"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
"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
They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to
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 about a
birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at
the 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'll drive, fly,
walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care
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.
I only wish they accepted themselves for all the
preciousness and beauty they lend to the Universe.
Love the woman in you, also.
A tired soul.
