    “When God Created Mothers"

    When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel appeared and said. "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."

    And God said, "Have you read the specs on this order?" She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts...all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. And six pairs of hands."

    The angel shook her head slowly and said. "Six pairs of hands.... no way."

    It's not the hands that are causing me problems," God remarked, "it's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."

    That's on the standard model?" asked the angel. God nodded.

    One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, 'What are you kids doing in there?' when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. 'I understand and I love you' without so much as uttering a word."

    God," said the angel touching his sleeve gently, "Get some rest tomorrow...."

    I can't," said God, "I'm so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick...can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger...and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower."

    The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.

    But tough!" said God excitedly. "You can imagine what this mother can do or endure."

    Can it think?"

    Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise," said the Creator.

    Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.

    There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model."

    It's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."

    What's it for?"

    It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride."

    You are a genius, " said the angel.

    Somberly, God said, "I didn't put it there.”
    Erma Bombeck, When God Created Mothers

    Francis of Assisi
    “Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace.
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love,
    Where there is injury, pardon;
    Where there is doubt, faith;
    Where there is despair, hope;
    Where there is darkness, light;
    And where there is sadness, joy.

    O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
    to be consoled as to console,
    to be understood as to understand,
    to be loved, as to love.

    For it is in giving that we receive,
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.”
    Francis of Assisi

    Mahatma Gandhi
    “When every hope is gone, 'when helpers fail and comforts flee,' I find that help arrives somehow, from I know not where. Supplication, worship, prayer are no superstition; they are acts more real than the acts of eating, drinking, sitting or walking. It is no exaggeration to say that they alone are real, all else is unreal.”
    Mahatma Gandhi, The Story of My Experiments With Truth

  • #3005
    Walt Whitman
    “I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine—it always keeps the way beyond open—always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake—after a wrong guess.”
    Walt Whitman, Walt Whitman's Camden Conversations

    Cornelia Funke, Inkdeath

    Gabriel García Márquez
    “A lie is more comfortable than doubt, more useful than love, more lasting than truth.”
    Gabriel García Márquez

    Father, R.I.P., Sums Me Up at Twenty-Three

    She has no head for politics,
    craves good jewelry, trusts too readily,

    marries too early. Then
    one by one she sends away her friends

    and stands apart, smug sapphire,
    her answer to everything a slender

    zero, a silent shrug--and every day
    still hears me say she'll never be pretty.

    Instead she reads novels, instead her belt
    matches her shoes. She is master

    of the condolence letter, and knows
    how to please a man with her mouth:

    Good. Nose too large, eyes too closely set,
    hair not glorious blonde, not her mother's red,

    nor the glossy black her younger sister has,
    the little raven I loved best.”
    Deborah Garrison, A Working Girl Can't Win
