Heart of a Woman
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 and said, "Have you
seen the spec sheet on her? She has to be
completely washable, but not plastic, have 200
movable parts, all replaceable, run on black
coffee and leftovers, have a lap that can hold
two children at one time and that disappears when
she stands up, have a kiss that can cure anything
from a scraped knee to a broken heart, and have
six pairs of hands."
The Angel was astounded at the requirements for
this one. "Six pairs of hands! No Way!"
said the Angel.
The Lord replied, "Oh, it's not the hands
that are the problem. It's the three pairs of
eyes that mothers must have!"
And that's just on the standard model?" The
The Lord nodded in agreement. "Yep, one pair
of eyes is to see through the closed door as she
asks her children what they are doing even though
she already knows. Another pair in the back of
her head is to see what she needs to know even
though no one thinks she can. And the third pair
is here in the front of her head. They are for
looking at an errant child and saying that she
understands and loves him or her without even
saying a single word."
The Angel tried to stop the Lord. "This is
too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to
finish. "But I can'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
feed a family on a pound of hamburger and can get
a nine year old to stand in the shower."
The Angel moved closer and touched the woman,
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."
"She is soft," 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
The Angel then noticed something and reached out
and touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it
looks like you have a leak with this model. I
told you that you were trying to put too much
into this one."
"That's not a leak." The Lord objected.
"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 loneliness, her grief, and
The Angel was impressed. "You are a genius,
Lord. You thought of everything, for women are
Women have strengths that amaze men. They carry
children, they carry hardships, 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 new shoes so their
children can have them. They go to the doctor
with a frightened friend. They love
They cry when their children excel and cheer when
their friends get awards. Their hearts break when
a friend dies. They have sorrow 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 sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to
show how much they care about you. The heart of a
woman is what makes the world spin! Women do more
than give birth. They bring joy and hope. They
give compassion and ideals. Women have a lot to
say and a lot to give.
