this was something i got in the mailbox. quite touching and true.
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 and said, "Have you seen the specification sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have 200 movable parts, all replaceable, run on black coffee and leftovers, have a lap that can hold two children at one time and that disappears when she stands up, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart, and have six pairs of hands."
The Angel was astounded at the requirements for this one. "Six pairs of hands! No Way!" said the Angel. The Lord replied, "Oh, it's not the hands that are the problem. It's the three pairs of eyes that others must have!" "And that's just on the standard model?" The Angel asked.
The Lord nodded in agreement. "Yep, one pair of eyes is to see through the closed door as she asks her childre! n what they are doing even though she already knows. Another pair in the back of her head is to see what she needs to know even though no one thinks she can. And the third
pair is here in the front of her head. They are for looking at an errant child and saying that she understands and loves him or her without even saying a single word." The Angel tried to stop the Lord. "This is too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish." "But, I can'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 feed a family on a pound of hamburger and can get a nine year old to stand in the shower." The Angel moved closer and touched the woman,
"But you have made her so soft, Lord." "She is soft," Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure oraccomplish." "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 reached out and touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak with this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one." "That's not a leak." The Lord objected. "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 loneliness, her grief, and her pride." The Angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything, for women are truly amazing." Women have strengths that amaze men. They carry children, they carry hardships, they carry burdens but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cr! y. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up for injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer, when they believe! there is a better solution. They go without new shoes so their children can have them. 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. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They have sorrow 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 sizes, in all colors and shapes. 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 spin! Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy and hope. They give compassion and ideals. Wom! en have a lot to say and a lot to give.
Pass it along to your women friends to remind them how amazing they are.but after going through it and the reactions i got, i thought it was time a tribute to the darker sex was also drafted. and thus was this answer to it.
This mail might make some of us look like MCPs but then who cares. Just
read on. Took a lot of time to write but well prolly worth the effort,
How God made man?
When God was making man, he was one day approached by a group of angels with a
specification sheet to make a person just like him but also to see that he was
more human and could fit into the scheme of things and animals on earth!
God started reading the specification sheet and said, "Are you nuts? What is
this that you want me to make?" The angels told to him in unison, "We want him to
be completely strong and durbale. He shall be strong enough to take any pains
or wounds for himself but should be delicate enough to teach his children to
walk without hurting their little fingers."
"He shall be tough and extremely cold towards himself and his pains but warm
enough to hug his sweetheart in the raging cold and provide her succor. His
shall be strong and tough without any fears and full of courage, but a small
tear in the eyes of his lady will kill him quick"
God asked "Is that it?"
The angels anwered "Oh! Not Yet! we are just getting started."
"His wallet must be huge like his heart. And he must be silly and stupid. He
must buy a diamond necklace to his pouting wife only to get a simple "I Love
You" in return. And a brand new Ford Mustang to his children who are just out
of college even though he cant afford a new pair of shoes"
"He must act tough with his children to make them grow up to be tough,
disciplined and self-respecting. And then for the rest of his life he must
bear the brunt of this with his own children who think he is just a nutty
"He must be able to sustain himself on nothings to high-fat foods of burgers
and pizzaz and keep up with endless streams of depression and stress. He must
not cry whatever the reason and then should not even think about going home as
he has to send his son/daughter to the university and buy a house for them"
"He must be endowed with telepathic powers and see that he can understand
everything his lady thinks about in her mind even though she might be silent
about it.And then in the final stages of his life when everyone thinks him to
be just an antique piece item with no practicality he should be a silent
recluse and keep up with ridicule"
"He must mend himself when his heart is broken and then must start to begin
his life afresh. And then he must silly enough to go on his knees to ask the
hand of the woman he loves even though he might be the president. And then
they must be stupid enough to believe in their dreams and work relentlessly
for it as though their life is as stake. Though the world might believe in
them or not they shall live with their dreams and then rest in their
graves with satisfaction."
And finally spake god "And for all this he shall pay with his life sooner
then others"ps: no flames please :)
