This is an email I got from someone...

For all the beautiful women in my world...

"Why are you crying?" he asked his mom. "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 little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to GOD; when GOD got on the phone, the man said,
GOD, why do women cry so easily?" GOD said.......

"When I made women she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough
to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle enough to give comfort....

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

I 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......

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

This same sensitivity helps her make a child's boo-boo feel better and
shares in their teenagers anxieties and fears.......

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

I gave her a tear to shed, It's hers exclusively to use whenever it is
needed.  It's her only weakness....It's a tear for mankind........."

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.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman
is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the
passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman with passing years only
grows!

Please send this to the beautiful women today in celebration of Women's
History Month. If you do, something good will happen - you will boost
another woman's self-esteem.

Every Woman is Beautiful....

I received this e-mail from a co-worker the other day Erin, and really liked this too.  I passed it on to some special women in my life, it's a lovely read.

And a   for Chris ...

Best wishes,

One perfect crystal tear
lay upon her porcelain cheek
eyes wide open, though not seeing
she’s lived for just a week.

Kissed away, the tear was gone
but came more frequently
as she grew the crystals came
appealing, beseechingly.

Growing up, the tear became
a weapon of power and delight
used against mere mortal men
who seeing it, gave up the fight.

Dying now, there appeared
a heavenly, glistening tear
the last upon her withered cheek
in this her final year.
