SIX LITTLE STORIES WITH LOTS OF
MEANINGS

  • Once all villagers decided to pray
    for rain.  On the day of prayer, all the
    people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella.  That is FAITH.
  • When you throw babies in the air,
    they laugh because they know you will catch them.  That is TRUST.
  • Every night we go to bed without any
    assurance of being alive the next morning, but still we set the alarms wake
    up.  That is HOPE.
  • We plan big things for tomorrow in
    spite of zero knowledge of the future. 
    That is CONFIDENCE.
  • We see the world suffering, but still,
    we get married & have children.  That
    is LOVE.
  • On an old man’s shirt was written a
    sentence ‘I am not 80 years old; I am sweet 16 with 64 years of
    experience.  That is ATTITUDE.

  Have a Happy New Year, and live your life like these six stories.  Remember – Good friends are the rare jewels of life, difficult to find and impossible to replace!!
