” The Wisdom of a Little Boy “


Grandpa- Wisdom of a little boy

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and four-year-old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eye sight was blurred, and his steps faltered. The family ate together at the table, but the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped the glass, milk spilled onto the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the messes.

“We must do something about Father,” said the son. “I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.”

The husband and wife set a small table in the corner. Grandfather ate alone there while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner. Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. When the family glanced in Grandfather’s direction, sometimes he had a tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

One evening before dinner, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making.”

Just as sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and Mama to eat your food from when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done.

That evening, the husband took Grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table. For the remainder of his days, he ate every meal with the family. For some reason, neither the husband nor the wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk was spilled, or the tablecloth was soiled.

You will remember this tale tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

On a positive note, ponder the following lessons learned:

1. No matter what hap pens and no matter how bad things seem today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

2. You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles the following things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

3. Regardless of your relationship with your parents, you will miss them when they are gone from your life.

4. Making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.”

5. Life sometimes gives you a second chance.

6. You should not go through life with catcher’s mitts on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

7. If you pursue happiness, it will elude you, but if you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your work, and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

8. Whenever you decide something with an open heart, you usually make the right decision.

9. Even when you have pains, you don’t have to be one.

10. Everyday, you should reach out and touch some -one; people love that human touchholding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

11. You still have a lot to learn!

You should pass this on to everyone you care about!

A Street Boy Singing Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You… He’s Amazing And Very Talented!

Last OCTOBER 2, 2012, I posted about a boy who became famous in You Tube singing a Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You

Roel Manlangit from Bukidnon, Philippines

And Now He Is A Star

Roel Manlangit won the Grand Finals in Philippine Got Talent Season 4.
Finally he has his dream come true :)

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Can I borrow $5?

Boy

Image ReferenceLON122759(BEI1982040K142)© Ian Berry/Magnum Photos-High Res Ready

A woman came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find her 5-year old son waiting for her at the door.

SON: ‘Mommy, may I ask you a question?’

MOM: ‘Yeah sure, what it is?’ replied the woman.

SON: ‘Mommy, how much do you make an hour?’

MOM: ‘That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?’ the woman said angrily.

SON: ‘I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?’

MOM: ‘If you must know, I make  $20 an hour.’

SON: ‘Oh,’ the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: “Mommy, may I please borrow $5?”

The mother was furious, ‘If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don’t work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.’

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut
the door..

The woman sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the woman had calmed down, and started to think:

Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $5 and he really didn’t ask for money very often.The woman went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

‘Are you asleep, son?’ She asked.

‘No Mommy, I’m awake,’ replied the boy.

‘I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier’ said the woman. ‘It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here’s the $5 you asked for.’

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. ‘Oh, thank you Mommy!’ he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The woman saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his mother.

‘Why do you want more money if you already have some?’ the mother grumbled.

‘Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,’ the little boy replied.

‘Mommy, I have $20 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow.
I would like to have dinner with you.’

The mother was crushed. She put her arms around her little son, and she begged for his forgiveness. 

It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $20 worth of your time with someone you love. 

If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.  And for those mom working miles aways from home like me… Cheer up! It’s a computer world!  So just make sure that your SKYPE is open 24/7….  as if you’ve never been away at all :)

A Scorpion Giving Birth…  Have you seen one?

The scorpion’s birth process is truly amazing. The female’s back opens up and scores of newborn scorpions crawl out, and then the back grows back together like nothing has happened.

Nature really is surprising.

Any Ideas how a scorpion gives birth.  Here are the following photos you will find very sensational :)

At the back of this female scorpio a small slit would start to open on day 1…

Oh Gross!  Then numbers of baby scorpions started to advance on day two…

On day 3, still the baby scorpions continue to progress…

On day 4 the baby scorpions gradually move out and start to crawl and spread…

Yay! So Many of them :)

Last day on the 5th, the baby scorpions continue their way out, yet the young scorpion mother stays uninterrupted…

Look how breathtaking it is, young scorpion mother is back again to normal…  :)

AMAZING!  Isn’t it? 


A Human-like Flowers

When creativity takes a turn toward nature, the results can be awe inspiring…

For all people in love… Diana by Paul Anka

Cheers!

Revisited

When I was little, I listened with my Mom 50′s and 60′s Album Collections…They were all downloaded in my brain even when I was just inside her womb, I believe this, haha, so that now when I hear this song –  ”I’m so young and you’re so old, this my darling I’ve been told, I don’t care just what they say, coz’ forever I will pray…Oh please stay by me Diana….” Oh, wow! This song would really make my day.  It uplifts my spirit too.  This song is like a lullaby to me.  I just love its lyrics and melody…

Christy Hengel, Is One of a Few Manufacturers of Concertinas in the U.S. Today. He Hand Crafts His Instrument Which Is Noted for Its Special Sound and Sells for $1,100…

Paul Anka, Tom Jones, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Bee Gees, are top albums I listened to the most while growing up usually with my mom. She had collections of them. Although I am a jazz-kind-of-a-hip-hop music lover, I still enjoy listening  to them.  To me these albums are lovely, classical and immortal…

How about you guys, would you like to share us those top albums you listened too while growing up?
You can use the comment below and if you have any video responses, it would be very nice too.  Just post them below in the comment area.  Merci :)

And while you are doing that, you can brew your coffee and let’s drink it up hot and fresh… hmmm taste good as always!

 :)
