Woman... you never know how strong you are until
being strong is the only choice you have....

Every so often I see something that catches my attention or someone sends me something
 that does.  Today this was sent to me by a friend.  I know many may have seen 
it before, but I still think it is worth sharing again.

WOMAN.  . .when God created woman he was working late on the 6th day....
An angel came by and asked." Why spend so much time on her ?"..

The lord answered. " Have you seen all the  specifications I have to meet to shape her?" 

She must function on all kinds of foods,  ...she must be able to embrace several kids at 
the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart, 
she must do all this with only two hands.  "She cures herself when sick 
and can work 18 hours a day"  THE ANGEL was impressed

" Just two hands.....impossible !" ..And this is the standard model ? ! ....
"The Angel came closer and touched the woman"......  ..." But you have made her so soft, 
 Lord"......" She is soft", said the Lord," But I have made her strong. You can't imagine
 what she can endure and overcome "...."Can she think?"  The Angel asked...
The Lord answered.  " Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate"

 ...The Angel touched her cheeks....." Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! 
You have put too many burdens on her. " ...."She is not is a tear" 
The Lord corrected the Angel   " What's it for?" Asked the Angel.  The Lord said. 
"Tears are her way of expressing her grief,her doubts, her love, 
her loneliness,  her suffering and her pride."

THIS made a big impression on the Angel, "Lord, you are genius. You thought of everything. 
 A  woman is indeed marvellous !"..Lord said." Indeed she is.  She has strength that amazes
a man.  She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.  She holds happiness, love
 and opinions.  She smiles when she feels like screaming.  She sings when she 
feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid. 

 She fights for what she believes in.  Her love is unconditional. Her heart is broken when
 a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life." The Angel
 asked : So she is a perfect ?  The lord replied: No. She has just one 
drawback   "She often forgets what she is worth".  

My dad from the time I can remember has always told my mom, "you are something of value." 
To this day he still tells her. To all women never let anyone put you down 
and never forget that you ARE something of value.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey.
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong...
