Be Patient..

This is a true story which happened in the States. A man came out ofhis home to admire his new truck. To his puzzlement, his three-year-oldson was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the truck.The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered the little boy's handsinto pulp as punishment. When the father calmed down, he rushed his sonto the hospital.

Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, hefinally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands. When theboy woke up from the surgery & saw his bandaged stubs, he innocentlysaid, " Daddy,I'm sorry about your truck." Then he asked, "but when aremy fingers going to grow back?" The father went home & committedsuicide.

Think about this story the next time someone steps on your feet or uwish to take revenge. Think first before u lose your patience withsomeone u love. Trucks can be repaired.. Broken bones & hurt feelingsoften can't. Too often we fail to recognise the difference betweenthe person and the performance. We forget that forgiveness isgreater than revenge.

People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever
