A little boy asked his mother, Why are you crying ?

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 boy still didn't get an answer! so he only had his old grandfather to ask

The little boy asked his grandfather, why do women cry so easily

The grandfather said, when God made women, she had to be special.
He made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet ! gentle enough to give comfort

God gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children

God 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

God gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly

God gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart

God 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

And finally, God gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed

You see my son, the beauty of a woman is not in the
clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair

The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to
her heart - the place where love resides
