Why Women Cry

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?" "Because I'm a woman," she told
him. I

her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is

"You see my son," said God, "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."
