The One Flaw In A Woman

Years ago someone sent this poem and I have used it many times in our Women’s Empowerment seminars.
You will find the original version of the poem below. I was very excited when just a few days ago someone sent me this beautiful movie using the words from the poem. Click Here for the movie and I encourage you to sign up for the newsletter. I hope you enjoy the movie just as much as I have. Make sure to turn up your speakers.

THE ONE FLAW IN WOMEN
By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, “Why are you spending so much time on this one?”
And the Lord answered, “Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart-and she will do everything with only two hands.”

The angel was astounded at the requirements. “Only two hands!? No way! And that’s just on the standard model? That’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish.”
“But I won’t,” the Lord protested. “I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days.”
The angel moved closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.”
“She is soft,” the Lord agreed, “but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.”
The angel asked: “Will she be able to think?”
The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate.”
The angel then noticed something, and reaching out, touched the woman’s cheek. “Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told! You that you were trying to put too much into this one.”
“That’s not a leak,” the Lord corrected, “that’s a tear!”
“What’s the tear for?” the angel asked.

“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 ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.”
“It sounds as if you have created perfection,” the angel said to the Lord.
“No, that is not true–there is one flaw which I have not been able to overcome.”

The angel inquired: “And what is woman’s one flaw?”
“THE ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR Worth.”

Empty?

I would like to share with you another bit of information from Rachel Snyder’s Book….Words of Wisdom for Women.

Empty…
Pour it out. Dump it out. Throw it out. Empty every bag, box, and bureau. Empty every closet, every corner, every cupboard, every cell. Pull it out. Drag it out. Clean it out. Clear it out. Spread it out, sort it out. Look at what you’ve collected, what you’ve stored, what you carry around with you every day of your life. Empty out the old, the unwanted, the unusable. Empty out the pain, the heartache, the memories. Empty everything that offers nothing. Leave things empty for a while. Feel empty. Feel the lack. Feel your way through the nothingness, until at last you feel ready to fill.

This is a great book and I suggest you check it out and enjoy!

W.E. Women’s Empowerment Call Tonight, June 21.

Hi everyone…. just a reminder about our W.E. call tonight Monday, June 21st. at 7:30 PM PT. On our short call(approx. 20 minutes) we will share ways to find some peace and JOY in our sometimes chaotic lives.

Joy can be your light that becomes a beacon for all those in your life you encounter. Joy is infectious and love is very healing to all. Sheri will show you that you do not have to have a prestigious title, be a famed star or a person with great material assets. You only need to have the desire to fully find your own Joy in living your true self and taking this found Joy and inspiring others to do the same.

To find your own Joy may mean stepping outside of your comfort zone by learning something new, surrounding yourself with positive people, experiencing forgiveness, gratitude and or learning how to change your thinking from “smallness.” We must always remember, life is not truly served by playing small.”

Invite your aunts, nieces, sisters, mothers, daughters amd any women that are special in your life.
