One flaw

This is for all the women who read this journal. :)

By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working
An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this

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
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 this:

That they forget their worth.
