BE PATIENT

BE PATIENT

This is a true story which happened in the States. 
A man came out of his home to admire his new truck. 
To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the truck. 
The man ran to his son, knocked him away,
 hammered the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment. When the father calmed down, 
he rushed his son to the hospital.

Although the doctor tried desperately 
to save the crushed bones,
 he finally had to amputate the
 fingers from both the boy's hands. 
When the boy woke up from the surgery & saw 
his bandaged stubs, 
he innocently said, 'Daddy, 
I'm sorry about your truck.' Then he asked,
'but when are my fingers going to grow back?' 
The father went home & committed suicide.

Think about this story the next time 
someone steps on your feet or
you wish to take revenge. 
Think first before you lose your patience
with someone you love. Trucks can be repaired.. 
Broken bones & hurt feelings often can't. 
Too often we fail to recognize the difference
between the person and the performance. 
We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge.

People make mistakes. We are allowed to 
make mistakes. But the actions we 
take while in a rage will haunt us forever.


'Good Life starts only when you stop
 wanting a better One''Life is not measured by 
the number of breaths we take, but by the
moments that take our breath away '
