Be careful how you treat others

There was once a frail elderly woman whose loving husband died and because there was nobody else to keep her company, except the young girl who was hired to take care of her needs, a decision was made that she has to go and live with her son, his wife and their little daughter. With time the old woman’s vision became bad and her hearing grew worse. Her hands started to tremble so badly that the peas on her plate fell onto the floor and the soup spilled from her cup. Her son and his wife couldn’t help but be annoyed at the mess she was making while eating. So, one day they just stood up and said enough is enough, they couldn’t take it anymore. A little table was set for the old woman in a corner next to the broom closet. The old woman was now forced to eat all her meals there alone. This became a daily routine; the old woman spent her mealtimes alone without anybody speaking to her. The only time the couple uttered a word was when they scolded her for spilling her food or dropping her spoon.
One day before dinner, the little girl was sitting on the floor playing with her building blocks. The father out of curiosity inquired what she was doing. The little girl responded by saying, “I am building a little table for you and mom, so you can eat alone like granny in the corner someday when I get big.” The parents were stunned by the little girl’s response. This opened their eyes to the bad treatment they were giving to the old woman. With tears rolling down their cheeks, they repented for treating the old woman harshly. The couple immediately brought back the old woman to the table and began talking and enjoying meals with her. They no longer paid attention to the mess of a spoon falling down or milk spilling on the table. The lesson they learned from their daughter is that whatever you sow in this world you will definitely reap, whether good or bad. The couple learned that life is like a big farm where different farmers sow their seeds. What we reap comes from what we have earlier planted. So, in order to have an enjoyable great future, learn to sow seeds of goodness, love, humanity, honesty, diligence and faithfulness.

The story of life

Hi everyone, i have something that i read that i want to share with you. Enjoy. Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson, or to help you figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be (possibly your roommate, neighbor, coworker, long lost friend, lover, or even a complete stranger), *but when you lock eyes with them, you know at that very moment they will affect your life in some profound way.*

And sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

*Everything happens for a reason.*

Nothing happens by chance or by means of good luck.

Illness, injury, love, lost moments of true greatness, and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of your soul.
Without these small tests, whatever they may be, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. It would be safe and comfortable, but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life, and the success and downfalls you experience, help to create who you are and who you become. *Even the bad experiences can be learned from.* In fact, they are probably the most poignant and important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.

*Make every day count.*

Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can for you may never be able to experience it again.

Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen.

Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high.

Hold your head up because you have every right to.

Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.

You can make of your life anything you wish.

Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.

*Most importantly,* *if you LOVE someone tell him or her, for you never know what tomorrow may have in store.*

And learn a lesson in life each day that you live.
