If you’re looking for some perspective and guidance, these beautiful words will bring you peace and comfort. Change your perspective now by reading these comforting life lessons:
The first lesson:
After some months at the faculty of medicine, the professor gave us a test. Being a good student, I quickly answered all the questions. all but the last: “What is the baptism name of the maid of our institute?”
I handed over my test paper, leaving the last question unanswered. Just before the lesson ended, another student enquired if the last question would be marked.
“Certainly!” the professor replied. “You will meet many people in your life. All of them will have some degree of importance. They will deserve your attention, even if it is a simple smile or a simple hello.”
I never forget this lesson… and went on to learn that the baptism name of our maid was Marianna.
The Second Lesson:
One a rainy, tempestuous night an African American woman was standing on the roadside. Her car had broken down and she desperately needed help. Wet to her core, she signalled to the passers by.
A white young man, as if unaware of the racial conflicts that tore apart America in the 1960s, stopped to help her. He conducted her to a safe place, called a mechanic and hailed a taxi for her. Although she was in a hurry, she did not forget to thank him and take down his address on a piece of paper.
Seven days had already passed when someone knocked at the door of the young man. To his enormous surprise, it was a packet to deliver a big colour TV along with a note:
“Many thanks for helping me on the road that night. The rain had completely drenched me and my soul when you appeared. Thanks to you I was able to reach my dying husband just in time. God bless you for having helped me.
Mrs King Cole’
The Third Lesson:
Sometime ago, when ice cream was not so expensive, a ten year old boy went to an ice-cream parlour. While sitting at the table:
Boy asked : How much does a Sundae cost?
Waitress: 50 cents.
The boy took out his money from the pocket and began counting it.
Boy : Well, how much does a simple ice cream cost?
There were other waiting to be served, so the waitress began to get a little impatient.
Waitress: 35 cents!
The boy counted his money again.
Boy : Please get me a simple ice cream.
The waitress served him the ice-cream and his bill. The boy ate his ice-cream, paid his bill at the counter and left.
When the waitress went to clean the table, she began to cry… for there, in the corner of the plate, were 15 cents… her tip. The boy took a simple ice-cream instead of a sundae so that he could leave a tip for her.
Remember these life lessons:
If you have never experiences the perils of war or the solitude of imprisonment, less the agony of torture and hunger, you are much ahead of most of the 7.4 billion people who live in this world.
If you have food in the refrigerator, clothes on your back, a roof overhead and a place to sleep, you are richer than 75% of this world.
If you can go to your place of worship without being threatened, arrested, tortures or killed, you are more fortunate than 3 billion people who live in this world.
If you have money in the bank, in your wallet, and spare change in a dish someplace … You are among the top 8% of the world’s wealthy.
If you can hold someone’s hand, hug him or her, or even touch him or her on the shoulder … You are blessed, because you can offer healing touch.
If you can read this message, you just received a double blessing that someone was thinking of you, and furthermore, you are more blessed than over two billion people in the world who cannot read at all.
If you like these beautiful lessons, send it to all those you consider to be your friends. Brighten up someone’s day. If you don’t share nothing will happen. This is just one of those opportunities that gets lost in our daily routine. The only thing that is bound to happen is that it will smile to the faces of all who receive it, if you do share.
