女人的美麗

A little boy asked his mother "Why are you crying?
一個男孩問他的媽媽:『你為甚麼要哭呢?』

"Because I'm a woman," she told him.
媽媽說:『因為我是女人啊。』

"I don't understand," he said.
男孩說:『我不懂。』

His mum just hugged him and said, "And you never will"
他媽媽抱起他說:『你永遠不會懂得。』

Later the little boy asked his father,
"Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?"
後來小男孩就問他爸爸:『媽媽為何毫無理由的哭泣呢?』

"All women cry for no reason," was all his dad could say.
『所有女人都這樣。』他爸爸回答。

The little boy grew up and became a man,
still wondering why women cry.
當小男孩成為了一個男人,卻仍舊不懂女人為甚麼哭泣。

Finally he put in a call to God; and when God got on the phone,
he asked, "God, why do women cry so! Easily?"
最後,他打電話給上帝;當上帝拿起電話時,
他問道:『上帝,女人為甚麼那麼容易哭泣呢?』

God said: "When I made the 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"
上帝回答說:
『當我創造女人時,讓她很特別。我使她的肩膀能夠挑起整個世界的重擔,但是卻又柔情似水。』

"I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection
that many times comes from her children"
『我讓她的內心很堅毅,能夠承受分娩的痛苦和忍受自己孩子多次的拒絕。』

"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 "
『我賦予她耐心,使她在別人放棄的時候繼續堅持,並且無怨無悔的照顧自己的家人,讓他們跨越疾病和疲憊。』

"I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances,
even when her child has hurt her very badly"
『我賦予她在任何情況下都會寵愛孩子的情感,即使她的孩子傷害了她。』

"I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her
from his rib to protect his heart"
『我賦予她包容丈夫過錯的堅忍並且用塑成她的肋骨來保護他的心。』

"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"
『我賦予她智慧,讓她知道一個好丈夫是絕不會傷害他的妻子的,但有時我也會考驗她支持自己丈夫的決心和堅強。』

"And finally, I gave her a tear to shed.
This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed."
『最後,我讓她可以流下淚珠。只要她願意,這是她所獨有的。』

"You see: The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair."!
『你看,女人的美麗不是因為她穿的衣服、她保持的體型或者她梳頭的方式。』

"The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes,
because that is the doorway to her heart * the place where love resides."
『女人的美麗,必須從她的眼睛中去看,因為那是她心靈的窗戶和愛居住的地方。』


*延伸閱讀:卑微中所凝結濃縮的巨大感動
  當羅瑪利智我看到這篇轉載文章時,感動到差點連感想都寫不出來,因為這簡單的文章裏,實實在在地描述了女人的哀傷與美麗,特別是其中一句「我使她的肩膀能夠挑起整個世界的重擔,但是卻又柔情似水」,讓我深深地震懾住了;自古,文字與口述的傳承中,女人是卑微的、是低賤的,但卻必須又要承擔家中一切的擔憂,沒有報酬沒有感謝,很無奈也很惆悵,惆悵在年華逝去的雪髮上......
  然而,這份母性的卑微,從生命的誕生開始徐緩凝結,如今!已凝結濃縮成為讓人們內心佩服的巨大撼動,而這份不後悔的慈悲源頭,不是身為男人以及孩子可以明瞭的,他們唯一能做的,就是將體諒的心,成為滋潤的甘霖,茵蘊女人心中那永恆、偉大的生命綠洲。
