Sorry, Howard....I have to weigh in on the other side...

From a friend ... (translated from Danish) Not REALLY Endurance related,
but I think maybe appropriate here.

A little boy asked his mother, "Why are you crying?"

"Because I'm a woman," she told him.

"I don't understand," he said. His mom just hugged him and said,
"And you never will".....Later the little boy asked
his father, "Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"

"All women cry for no reason" was all his dad could say.

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally, he put in a call to God; when God got on the phone, the man
asked, "God, why do women cry so easily?"

God said, "When I made a woman, she had to be special. I made her
shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world; yet, gentle
enough to
give comfort.....

I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth
and the rejection that many times comes from her children. I gave her a
hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up and
take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without
complaining. I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any
and all
circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.

This same sensitivity helps her make a child's boo-boo
feel better and shares in her teenagers anxieties and fears.

I gave her strength to carry her husband through his
faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.

I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never
hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to
stand beside him unfalteringly.

And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers
exclusively to use whenever it is needed.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she
wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she
combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes
because that is the doorway to her heart, the place
where love resides.
