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.

  1. When all of our “tendencies” are lined up together in a lovely poem, we women have a great deal to appreciate about one another! Thank you, Paul, for such kind affirmation.

    This was posted for Mother’s Day, but it doesn’t need a special day to have special meaning.


  3. Amazingly beautiful! I feel elated when someone pays woman her deserving respect genuinely. I love the way she is acknowledged. Love this to the last.

    I have a problem with your posts. They cause me to look for more great stuff from you and Dilbert. How do you expect me to get any work done? If you wrote this one, you are a man after my own heart, not to mention God’s.

    Of course not all women, all of the time—still this is a lovely tribute to women and every stanza describes a woman I am privileged to know.


  7. This comments section is as long as the line at the Apple store the first day a new product hits the shelves!!! I’m getting in line to add my thanks and Amen 😉 Paul Jenkins, may your tribe increase.

    This is so lovely. It resonates with me, especially being a stay-at-home mom. I have to stop and remind myself sometimes (and my husband does all the time) that there is value in what I do, that he is able to do what he does because I do what I do.
