A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were aloving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When the boy wasaround two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottleopen. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle andkeep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totallyforgot the matter. The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to thebottle fascinated by its color and drank it all. It happened to be apoisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the childcollapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he died. Themother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband. When thedistraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he lookedat his wife and uttered just five words.

QUESTIONS :1. What were the five words ?2. What is the implication of this story?
ANSWER :The husband just said
"I am with you Darling"The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. Thechild is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no pointin finding fault with the mother.Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this wouldnot have happened. No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her onlychild. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy fromthe husband. That is what he gave her.If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there wouldbe much fewer problems in the world".

A journey of a thousand milesbegins with a single step. Take off all your envies, jealousies,unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things areactually not as difficult as you think.

MORAL OF THE STORY:This story is really worth reading. ..... Sometimes we spend time inasking who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship,in a job or with the people we know.
By this way we miss out something called LIFE.
