Why are you crying, Mom?
“Why are you crying?” he 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”……….
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother
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; when GOD got on the phone
the man said, “GOD, why do women cry so easily?”
and GOD said…….
When I made woman, she had to be special. I made her
shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the World;
yet, gentle enough to give comfort….
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the
rejection that many times comes from her children……
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when
everyone else gives up and take care of her family through
sickness and fatigue without complaining……
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and
all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very
This same sensitivity helps her to make a child’s boo-boo
feel better and shares in their teenagers anxieties and
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults
and 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 unfalteringly…..
I gave her tears to shed. They are hers to use whenever she
needs them. They are her secret strength. They make her
more like ME…..
