Arms and the man

A solider who was finally coming home after having fought in Vietnam called his parents from San Francisco, “Mom and Dad, I’m coming home, but i have a favor to ask. I have a friend i’d like to bring home with me.”

“Sure,” they replied, “we’d love to meet him.”

“Theres something you should know” the son continued, “he was hurt pretty badly in the fighting. He stepped on a land mine and lost an arm and a leg. He had nowhere else to go and I want him to come live with us.”

“I’m sorry to hear that, son. Maybe we can help him find somewhere to live.”

“No, Mom and Dad, I want him to live with us.”

“Son,” said the father, “you don’t know what you’re asking. Someone with such a handicap would be a terrible burden on us. We have our own lives to live and we can’t let something like this interfere with our lives. I think you should just come home and forget about this guy. He’ll find a way to live on his own.”

At that point the son hung up the phone. The parents heard nothing more from him. A few days later they received a call from the San Francisco police. The police believed their son had committed suicide.

The grieving parents flew to San Francisco to identify the body. To their horror they discovered their son had only one arm and one leg.

Adam: Lord, you have given me the beautiful flowers and the sunset…but i look at Eve and she is so beautiful , God why did you make her so beautiful?

God: So you will always want to look at her.

Adam: Lord, her skin is so soft. Why did you make her skin so soft?

God: So you will always want to touch her.

Adam: She smells so good. Lord, why did you make her smell so good?

God: So you will always want to be near her.

Adam: Lord i don’t want to seem ungrateful but why did you make her so stupid?

God: So she would love you.
