Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said.. How is my little boy?. Is he going to be all right?. When can I see him?.
The surgeon said, I’m sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn’t make it. Sally said,
Why do little children get cancer?. Doesn’t God care any more?. Where were you, God, when my son needed you?..
The surgeon asked, Would you like some time alone with your son?. One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university..
Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good bye to son..
She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair..
Would you like a lock of his hair?. the nurse asked.. Sally nodded yes.. The nurse cut a lock of the boy’s hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally.. The mother said, It was Jimmy’s idea to donate his body to the university for study.. He said it might help somebody else. I said no at first, but Jimmy said, Mom, I won’t be using it after I die.. Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.. She went on, My Jimmy had a heart of gold.. Always thinking of someone else.. Always wanting to help others if he could..
Sally walked out of Children’s mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there.. She put the bag with Jimmy’s belongings on the seat beside her in the car.. The drive home was difficult.. It was even harder to enter the empty house.. She carried Jimmy’s belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son’s room.. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them.. She laid down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep..
It was around midnight when Sally awoke.. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter..
The letter said, Dear Mom, I know you’re going to miss me, but don’t think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just ’cause I’m not around to say I LOVE YOU.. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day.. Someday we will see each other again.. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won’t be so lonely, that’s okay with me.. He can have my room and old stuff to play with.. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn’t like the same things us boys do.. You’ll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know..
Don’t be sad thinking about me.. This really is a neat place.. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything.. The angels are so cool . I love to watch them fly.. And, you know what?. Jesus doesn’t look like any of his pictures.. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him.. Jesus himself took me to see GOD!. And guess what, Mom?. I got to sit on God’s knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important.. That’s when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good bye and everything..
But I already knew that wasn’t allowed.. Well, you know what Mom?. God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter.. I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you.. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him Where was He when I needed him?.
God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children..
Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I’ve written except you.. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper.. Isn’t that cool? I have to give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life.. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I’m, sure the food will be great..
Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don’t hurt anymore.. The cancer is all gone. I’m glad because I couldn’t stand that pain anymore and God couldn’t stand to see me hurt so much, either. That’s when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery!. How about that?. Signed with Love from God, Jesus & Me.. Author Unknown”
Imagine there is a bank, which credits your account each morning with Rs 86,400, carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day.. What would you do?.
Draw out every pence, of course!.
Well, everyone has such a bank.. Its name is Time.. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to good purpose.. It carries over no balance.. It allows no overdraft..
Each day it opens a new account for you.. Each night it burns the records of the day.. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours..
There is no going back.. There is no drawing against the
Therefore, there is never not enough time or too much time.. Time management is decided by us alone and nobody else.. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do it..____
One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.. Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.. He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.. They all grabbed a shovel and begin to shovel dirt into the well.. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly..
Then, to everyone’s amazement he quieted down.. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.. With every shovel of dirt that fell on his back, the donkey was doing some thing amazing.. He would shake it off and take a step up.. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up..
Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and totted off!..
#Moral: Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.. The trick is too not to get bogged down by it.. We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping.. And by never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up!!.
A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner…
Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers…
Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm…
After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly… When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that…
The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father…
At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him, Don’t you think you have left something behind ?..
The son replied, No sir, I haven’t..
The old man retorted, Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father..
The restaurant went silent…
#Moral: To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors… We all know, how our parents cared for us for every little things… Love them, respect them, and care for them.. ____
Once upon a time a daughter complained to her father that her life was miserable and that she didn’t know how she was going to make it… She was tired of fighting and struggling all the time… It seemed just as one problem was solved, another one soon followed… Her father, a chef, took her to the kitchen. He filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire…
Once the three pots began to boil, he placed potatoes in one pot, eggs in the second pot and ground coffee beans in the third pot… He then let them sit and boil, without saying a word to his daughter… The daughter, moaned and impatiently waited, wondering what he was doing… After twenty minutes he turned off the burners… He took the potatoes out of the pot and placed them in a bowl… He pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl… He then ladled the coffee out and placed it in a cup…
Turning to her, he asked… Daughter, what do you see? Potatoes, eggs and coffee, she hastily replied…
Look closer, he said, and touch the potatoes… She did and noted that they were soft.
He then asked her to take an egg and break it… After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard-boiled egg…
Finally, he asked her to sip the coffee… Its rich aroma brought a smile to her face…
Father, what does this mean ? she asked…
He then explained that the potatoes, the eggs and coffee beans had each faced the same adversity the boiling water… However, each one reacted differently… The potato went in strong, hard and unrelenting, but in boiling water, it became soft and weak… The egg was fragile, with the thin outer shell protecting its liquid interior until it was put in the boiling water… Then the inside of the egg became hard… However, the ground coffee beans were unique… After they were exposed to the boiling water, they changed the water and created something new…
Which one are you ? he asked his daughter… When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond ? Are you a potato, an egg, or a coffee bean ?
#Moral: In life, things happen around us, things happen to us, but the only thing that truly matters is how you choose to react to it and what you make out of it… Life is all about leaning, adopting and converting all the struggles that we experience into something positive…. _____
