Why Mothers Cry


Why Mothers Cry

"Why are you crying?" he asked his mom. 
"Because I'm a mother," she told him. 
"I don't understand," he said. 
His mom just hugged him and said, "You never will!" 
Later the little boy asked his father why Mother 
seemed to cry for no reason. 
"All mothers cry for no reason," was all his dad could say. 
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering 
why mothers cry. So he finally put in a call to God, and 
when God got on the phone the man said, 
"God, why do mothers cry so easily?" 
God said, "You see son, when I made mothers they had 
to be special. I made their shoulders strong enough to 
carry the weight of the world, yet gently enough to give 
comfort. I gave them an inner strength to endure childbirth 
and the rejection that many times come from their children." 
"I gave them a hardiness that allows them to keep going 
when everyone else gives up, and to take care of their 
families through sickness and fatigue without complaining." 
"I gave them the sensitivity to love their children under all 
circumstances, even when their child has hurt them very 
badly. This same sensitivity helps them to make a child's boo-boo 
feel better and helps them share a teenager's anxieties and fears." 
"I gave them a tear to shed. It's theirs exclusively to use whenever 
it's needed. It's their only weakness. It's a tear for mankind."
