“I was complaining I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.” – Confucius
A short story to share.
A man walked into a shop to order some flowers to be sent as a gift to his mother, living 200 miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing. He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother. But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.” The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.” He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home. She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother!” She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the gifting order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
At times, we can take many such relationships with our family and friends for granted. A humbling reminder to value what we have.
Never whine, never complain, never make excuses.
