STORY OF POTATOES

Once, a Junior School teacher
asked her students to bring some
potatoes in a plastic bag to
school. Each potato will be given
a name of the person whom that
child hates. Like this, the number
of potatoes will be equal to the
number of persons they hate.
On a decided day, the children
brought their potatoes well
addressed. Some had two, some
had three and some had even five
potatoes.
The teacher said they have to
carry these potatoes with them
everywhere they go for a week.
As the days passed the children
started to complain about the
spoiled smell that started coming
from these potatoes. Also some
students who had many potatoes
complained that it was very
heavy to carry them all around.
The children got rid of this
assignment after a week, when it
got over.
The teacher asked, “How did you
feel in this one week?”
The children discussed their
problems about the smell and
weight.
Then the teacher said, “This
situation is very similar to what
you carry in your heart when you
don’t like some people. This
hatred makes your heart
unhealthy and you carry that
hatred in your heart everywhere
you go. If you can’t bear the smell
of spoiled potatoes for a week,
imagine the impact on your heart
of this hatred that you carry
throughout your life.”
Our heart is a beautiful garden
that needs a regular cleaning of
unwanted weeds. Forgive those
who have not behaved with you as
expected and forget the bad
things. This also makes room
available for storing good
things.. :)

Littleone Ofpy A beautiful poem written by Sam Levenson ,a humourist for his granddaughter; Its called “TIME TESTED BEAUTY TIPS”

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge you’ll never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; Never throw out anybody.

Remember, If you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!”

A Glass of Milk – Paid In Full

One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?” “You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Year’s later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk”

MIRACLE OF LIFE – A MUST READ

Twin girls, Brielle and Kyrie, were born 12 weeks ahead of their due date. Needing intensive care, they were placed in separate incubators.

Kyrie began to gain weight and her health stabilized. But Brielle, born only 2 lbs, had trouble breathing, heart problems and other complications. She was not expected to live.

Their nurse did everything she could to make Brielle’s health better, but nothing she did was helping her. With nothing else to do, their nurse went against hospital policy and decided to place both babies in the same incubator.She left the twin girls to sleep and when when she returned she found a sight she could not believe. She called all the nurses and doctors and this is what they saw (refer to the picture above).As Brielle got closer to her sister, Kyrie put her small little arm around her, as if to hug and support her sister. From that moment on, Brielle’s breathing and heart rate stabilized and her health became normal.

A little bit of tender love goes a long way. Show affection to all ♥
