Why are you crying, a young boy asked his Mom?

Why are you crying, a young boy asked his Mom? 

"Because I'm a woman," she told him. 

"I don't understand," he said. 

His Mom just hugged him and said, 
"And you never will, but that's O.K."....... 

Later the little boy asked his father, 
"Why does Mom seem to cry for no reason?". 
"All women cry for no reason," was all his Dad could say...... 

The little boy grew up and became a man, 
still wondering why women cry. 

Finally he put in a call to God and when God got back to him, he asked "God, why do women cry so easily?" 

GOD answered...... 

"When I made woman, 
I decided she had to be special. 
I made her shoulders 
strong enough to carry 
the weight of the world, yet, 
made her arms gentle enough to give comfort... 

I gave her the inner strength 
to endure childbirth 
and the rejection 
that many times will come 
even from her own children. 

I gave her a hardness 
that allows her 
to keep going and take care 
of her family and friends, 
even when everyone else gives up, through sickness and fatigue without 

I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all 
circumstances. Even when her child has hurt her badly.... 

She has the very special power to make a child's boo-boo feel better and 
to quell a teenager's anxieties and fears.... 

I gave her strength to care for her husband, despite faults 
and I fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.... 

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but 
sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him 

For all of this hard work, 
I also gave her a tear to shed. 
It is hers to use 
whenever needed and ! 
it is her only weakness.... 
When you see her cry, 
tell her how much you love her, and all she does for everyone, and even though 
she may still cry, you will have made her heart feel good. 

She is special! 
Please send this to women you know, and those with mothers, 
sisters, and special women in their lives. 

But, also send this to men so they will understand about what a 
wonderful thing a woman is. 
Each day is a mountain that must be climbed; with courage each step 
gets easier.

Love your Mother Always

and keep her Smiling
