By the time the Lord/Higher Power 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/Higher Power answered, "Have you seen the spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable, 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 scraped knee to a broken heart and have two pairs of hands.“ The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Two pairs of 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 can't," the Lord/Higher Power 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/Higher Power." "She is soft," the Lord/Higher Power 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/Higher Power 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/Higher Power corrected, "that's a tear!" "What's the tear for?" the angel asked. The Lord/Higher Power 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/Higher Power. 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.
