In this month in which we celebrate mothers, it’s suitable to note that in these times, in this nation, and in this society it’s become more necessary and more frequent for the women, wives and mothers to stand side by side with their husbands and work to help support a family. This is done for many important reasons, one of them being necessities such as medical and life insurance among other things. That’s why she seems forced to double her efforts to not neglect her main responsibilities, which are to take care of her home and family, making it seem like two full-time jobs and in many cases three or more, lets not forget that in reality there is a great number of single mothers and also those who have one or more family members with a physical or mental disability, which results in immense labor for those who go through this. In honor of those women who struggle to give their family an honest life and especially to those who don’t have access to a computer or internet at home, I dedicate this article which was sent to me by some friends through email and in which I consider a dignified gift to be shared with the readers of Hola America. It comes from an unknown author and I share it with you just the way it was sent to me.
“A FEMALES’ DEFECT”
When God made the female, he was on his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, “Why do put so much time on this creation?”
God answered, “Have you seen my specifications for her? She must be completely washable, but not be made of plastic, have more than 200 moving pieces, each one changeable and able to function with any meal or leftovers, she must have a lap to accommodate four children at the same time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a knee scrape to a broken heart and will do all these with only two hands.”
The angel was amazed at the requirements, “Only two hands? Impossible! And is this only the standard model? It’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish her.”
“I will not,” protested God, “I’m so close to finishing this creation that is my own hearts favorite. She cures herself when she’s sick and can work 18 hour days.”
The angel got closer and touched the woman, “But, you’ve made her so soft, God.”
“She’s soft,” said God. “But I’ve made her strong, you have no idea what she can handle and accomplish.”
“Is she capable of thinking?,” asked the angel.
“Not only is she capable of thinking but also capable of reasoning and negotiating,” answered God.
The angel then noticed something and reached out his hand and touched her cheek, “God, it seems this model has a leak. I told you, you were trying to add too many things to her!”
“That isn’t a leak, it’s a tear,” God corrected him.
“What’s the tear for?” asked the angel.
Then God answered, “Tears are her way of expressing her happiness, her sadness, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This impressed the angel a lot. “You’re a genius God, you thought of everything. The female is truly wonderful.”
“She is! The female has strength that amazes men. They put up with difficulties, carry great worries, but have happiness, love and good luck. They smile when they want to scream, they sing when they want to cry, they cry when they’re happy and laugh when they’re nervous. They fight for what they believe in, they fight against injustice. They don’t take ‘no’ for an answer when they believe they have a better solution. They deprive themselves so that they’re family can have everything. They go to the doctor with a friend that’s scared to go along. They love unconditionally, cry when they’re children triumph and are happy when they’re friends are rewarded. They’re happy to hear about a birth or a wedding. They’re heart breaks when a friend passes away, they suffer with the loss of a loved one; but on the other hand, and they’re strong when they think there is no more strength. They know that a kiss and a hug can help cure a broken heart. However, there is a defect in a female: It’s that they forget how much they’re worth.”
