One Flaw in Women

Morning Story and Dilbert

Vintage Dilbert – November 7, 1991

Women have strengths that amaze men…..IT IS THAT
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in..
They stand up to injustice.
They don’t take “no” for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.

They go without so their family can have.
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.

They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve 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 shapes, sizes and colors.
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 keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideas.
They give moral support to their
family and friends.

Women have vital things to say
and everything to give.

  2. Superbly stated! How utterly true; what WOULD men do without women? They’d end up playing in their nuclear sandboxes and destroy the world. Thank Buddha there are women to keep those pesky men in check.

    Very true. We women are complex. That may be why women are twice as likely to become depressed. Thanks for liking my post.

    Thank you, as a woman, I do forget my worth. Thanks for reminding me.

  17. This is like the kind of thing my dad used to say. He thought men were a waste of time as a general rule.

  18. Ouch!
    This was a great reminder. Thank you for sharing!

    Upon reading this (And I do not ‘usually’ have a ‘potty’ mouth) I busted out, “Effing read this!”
    Pretty great! My 4 roomies (I have 8) all had to check it out. Love!

  20. You can substitute the word “Men” in any of the spots where there is the word “Women” and it still works! Nice job….

    How can I not love this! Thank you for reminding all women of their worth😊

  23. Not sure that’s only a flaw in women – it applies to a lot of men too.

  24. Awesome blog! Thanks for leading me to your site. Many blessings to you!

    I LIKE women … heck, I like ‘em enough that I even married one …

  27. That is so awesome! I love it! Women do forget how important and worthy they are! They love to encourage and uplift but when someone wants to do that for them, they are humble and modest; they aren’t ready for it!
