Make Life Beautiful and Grateful

A sweet short story with a great lesson… worth reading….*

Nearby, a building construction work was going on.
Lots of poor  labourers were working there and their small  children used to hold onto one another’s shirt and play “train-train”.
Someone would become the engine and others would become bogies
Every day these children used to take turns becoming the engine and bogies …
But there was  one small boy wearing only a half pant who used to hold one small green cloth in his hand and become the guard daily.

So  once I went to him and asked him ..”beta, don’t u also wish to become an engine or a bogie some time ?
He softly replied ..” Sir , I don’t have a shirt to wear so how will the other children catch me to make the train ?
I could see the slight wetness in his eyes..

But  It gave me a lesson…. he could have cried and sat at home and abused his parents for not affording to buy  him a shirt.
But instead he chose another way to play and enjoy himself..

In life, we don’t get all things we desire and we keep complaining ..
I dont have a bike,  I don’t have car , I don’t have this or that etc…

Life is like that ….we need to make it beautiful  and be grateful for what we have ..
