    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, "Have you seen my spec sheet on
    her?

    She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,

    have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable

    and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,

    have a lap that can hold four children at one time,

    have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee
    to a broken heart

    -and she will do everything

    with only two hands."


    The angel was astounded at the requirements.

    "Only two hands!? No way!

    And that's just on the standard model?

    That's too much work for one day.

    Wait until tomorrow to finish."


    But I won'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 work 18 hour days."


    The angel moved closer and touched the woman.

    "But you have made her so soft, Lord."


    "She is soft," the 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 negotiate."


    The angel then noticed something,

    and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.

    "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.

    I told you that you were trying to put too much into
    this one."


    "That's not a leak,"

    the Lord corrected,

    "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 love,

    her loneliness, her grief and her pride."

    The angel was impressed.

    "You are a genius, Lord.

    You thought of everything!

    Woman is truly amazing."


    And she is!

    Women have strengths that amaze men.

    They bear hardships and 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 to injustice.

    They don't take "no" for an answer

    when they believe there is a better solution.

    They go without so their family can have.

    They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

    They love unconditionally.

    They cry when their children excel

    and cheer when their friends get awards.

    They are happy when they hear about

    a birth or a wedding.

    Their hearts break when a friend dies.

    They grieve 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 shapes, sizes and colors.

    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 keep
    turning.

    They bring joy, hope and love.

    They have compassion and ideals.

    They give moral support to their family and friends.

    Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

    HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,

    IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.

    Hugs
    Phoebe
