When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day, an angel came by and asked. “Why spend so much time on her?”
The lord answered
“Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”
“She must be washable but not made of plastic,
have more than 200 moving parts which must be replaceable,
she must function on all kinds of foods,
she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,
give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart,
she must do all this with only two hands.
She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day” THE ANGEL was impressed. “Just two hands…..impossible !”
And this is the standard model ? ! ….”
The Angel came closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord”…..
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome
“Can she think?” The Angel asked.
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”
The Angel touched her cheeks.
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.”
“She is not leaking, it is a tear” The Lord corrected the Angel.
“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel.
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing
her suffering and
THIS made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are genius.
You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvelous !”
The Lord said “Indeed she is.
She has strength that amazes a man.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying,
cries when happy and
laughs when afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.
Her love is unconditional.
Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies
but she finds strength to get on with life.”
The Angel asked “So she is perfect ?”
|I am many things. Most importantly to me is that I am a mother to an amazing, overly smart (and smart assed like me) young man. I found my way early in life but let too many people influence me... it took a while to find my happy place, but I am now there, mostly, at least with that which I can control. I have seen utter beauty and complete chaos, felt the deepest longest love and the depths of regret and hatred... at least I can feel. I am no angel, no devil... just a person trying to do the right thing and muddle through this life|
