                          One Flaw In Women 

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.
