A gift of Love .
Posted On 05/27/2020 17:50:04

In a hospital delivery room.  A baby was born.

"Can I see my baby?" the happy new mother asked.

When the bundle was nestled in her arms and she moved the fold of cloth to look upon his tiny face, she gasped. The doctor turned quickly and looked out the tall hospital window. The baby had been born without ears.

Time proved that the baby's hearing was perfect. It was only his appearance that was marred. When he rushed home from school one day and flung himself into his mother's arms, she sighed, knowing that his life was to be a succession of heartbreaks.

He blurted out the tragedy. "A boy, a big boy ... called me a freak."

He grew up, handsome for his misfortune. A favorite with his fellow students, he might have been class president, but for that. He developed a gift, a talent for literature and music. "But you might mingle with other young people," his mother reproved him, but felt a kindness in her heart.

The boy's father had a session with the family physician. Could nothing be done? "I believe I could graft on a pair of outer ears, if they could be procured," the doctor decided.

Whereupon the search began for a person who would make such a sacrifice for a young man. Two years went by.

Then, "You are going to the hospital, Son. Mother and I have someone who will donate the ears you need. But it's a secret," said the father.

The operation was a brilliant success, and a new person emerged. His talents blossomed into genius, in school and college became a series of triumphs. Later he married and entered the diplomatic service.

"But I must know!" He urged his father, "Who gave so much for me? I could never do enough for him."

"I do not believe you could," said the father, "but the agreement was that you are not to know ... not yet."

The years kept their profound secret, but the day did come ... one of the darkest days that a son must endure. He stood with his father over his mother's casket.

Slowly, tenderly, the father stretched forth a hand and raised the thick, reddish-brown hair to reveal that the mother had no outer ears.

"Mother said she was glad she never let her hair be cut," he whispered gently, "and nobody ever thought Mother less beautiful, did they?" The son cried.

Moral lesson. Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance, but in the heart. Real treasure lies not in what that can be seen, but what that cannot be seen. Real love lies not in what is done and known, but in what that is done but not known.

A loving son

Last week was my Birthday , my family enjoy our dinner in one of the finest restaurant.  A son took his old father to a restaurant for an evening dinner. Father being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on his shirt and trousers. Other diners watched him in disgust while his son was calm.

After he finished eating, his son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took him to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed his hair and fitted his spectacles firmly.

When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that. The son settled the bill and started walking out with his father.

At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him.

“Don’t you think you have left something behind?”.

The son replied,  “No sir, I haven’t”.

The old man retorted, “Yes, you have..

You left a lesson for every son and hope for every father”.

The restaurant went silent.

Moral Lesson.. To care for those who once cared for us is one of the highest honors. We all know, how our parents cared for us for every little things. In return,  Love and respect them, and care for them.

Thank you so much for reading my friends, God bless you . Hugs

Lock down reflection.

 During these uncertain times that has forced us all to slow down, staying at home . I've had alot of time to reflect on what is truly important to me. My family, being able to spend time to laugh and eat together because when I'm working we can only be together at night  after my work.   Enjoying the beauty of the earth , swimming  ,going to our sorroundings  ,harvesting vegetables from our gardens and cooking .  Also  Praying , reading books , watching a movies with my nephew and nieces  and telling stories that made them Smiles. 

All things that I so easily take for  granted before because of my busy schedules in my clinic. Being disconnected has made me realized just how interconnected we truly are. And how much of life finds meaning from these connections. Missing relatives and friends , now even though we cant spend physical time together with our loved ones and friends, I take time  to send them a message, let them know how much I care them, check in with how they're feeling. Just because we're apart, doesnt mean we can't come together. I missed them all .  Thank you so much for reading. 

Sending you all a virtual hugs.
