“Don’t go through life as a taker,become a giver.”
I was reading last night a book about our life’s journey.It was an amazing story about a set of twins who was newly born. One of them had been born with a serious heart condition and wasn’t expected to live. A few days went by and the baby continued to deteriorate and she was close to death.
It was against hospital rules to put two babies inside the same incubator together. A hospital nurse convinced the doctors to allow the twins to be placed side by side in the same incubator, just as they had been in their mother’s womb.
The healthy baby managed to reach over and put his arm around his little sick sister.For no apparent reason her heart began to stabilize and heal.Her blood pressure came up to normal.Little by little she got better, and today they are both perfectly healthy children.
As I was reading the story I realized that some point in our lives we have been self-centered.We tend to focus on our problems,our own wants and needs.We are always saying I have no time,I am busy. What can I get from you in return of my favors?.We failed to see those people around us who have always been there when we needed them.
How long does it take to give somebody a compliment? How long does it take us to tell someone “Thank You” and appreciate something that he did? How long would it take for us to say to someone ,"I love You”? or even to give a smile for a job well done?
Everyday let us wake up and say I will be happy and make someone happy today.We have so much to give, so much to offer.It is also not enough to think and give kind compliments, we need to express them. “Love is not love until you give it away.”
Somebody needs our love.Somebody needs our touch.Someone needs our time.Someone needs our hug.Someone needs a pat on his shoulder or a smile.We may not realize it,but there is healing in our hug and in our simple ways.There is healing in our voice and on the way we make people feel how important they are.
We may not know but giving a small amount of time for others can change one’s life.A simple hug, or listening to one's troubles or making someone feel loved can and would heal, bring hope and save one’s life.
To My Kids and my Quiet Angel : These past few weeks I have been stressed and weak but you have always been in my heart...although I may not give you time as much as before...one thing will always remain...You will always be the Most Important and Special Persons in my Life... :)
Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get, it's what you are expected to give
