Loving Someone


  A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were a

  loving couple and the boy was the apple of their eyes.


  When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a

  medicine bottle open. He was late for work so he asked the wife to cap the

  bottle and keep it in the cupboard. The mother, preoccupied in the

  kitchen, totally forgot the matter.


  The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle and, fascinated

  with its colour, drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant

  for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed, the mother hurried

  him to the hospital, where he died.  The mother was stunned. She was

  terrified how to face her husband.


  When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child,

  he looked at his wife and uttered just four words.


  What do you think were the four words???


  The husband just said “I Love You Darling”


  The husband’s totally unexpected reaction is proactive behaviour. The child

  is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in

  finding fault with the mother.


  Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not

  have happened. No point in attaching blame. She had also lost her only

  child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from

  the husband. That is what he gave her.


  Sometimes we spend so much time asking who is responsible or who is to

  blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people we know.

  that we miss out some warmth in human relationship in giving each other

  support. After all, shouldn’t forgiving someone we love be the easiest

  thing in the world to do? Treasure what you have. Don’t multiply pain,

  anguish and suffering by holding on to unforgiveness.


  If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be

  much fewer problems in the world.


  Take off all your envies, jealousies, unwillingness to forgive,

  selfishness, and fears and you will find things are actually not as

  difficult as you think.


  THINK….. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”


  REMEMBER….. Caring should be in the Heart and not in Words. Anger should

  be in Words and not in the Heart.

    hi silly kom jy reg met die nuwe blogwerf

  3. Dankie vir die deel van die pragtige (dog hartseer) stuk. Iets om oor na te dink. Ons natuur kies altyd so maklik die verkeerde onsensitiewe reaksie as die liefdevolle vergewings gesindheid.

  5. Hey Silly,

    Hoor hier – vra bietjie vir Zeps. Ek probeer om op litnetters se blogs onder my eie profile in te log, maar ek kry nie ingelog nie. Ek is egter van my Favorites af direk ingelog in my profile (WordPress), maar ek kan geen litnetters se blogs opspoor of volg nie.
