Be thankful

by Michelle Fortes

Once at the start of a year , A man was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started
-Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I was
stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
-I turned 60 and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30
years of my life in this company.
-My father died.
-My son failed in his exam because he had a car accident. He had to
stay in bed at hospital for many days. The car was totally destroyed.
Alas! It was such bad year!

When the man’s wife entered the room, she found her husband
looking sad. She read what was written on the paper. She left the
room silently and came back with another paper and placed it at the
side of her husband’s writing. When the writer saw this paper, he
found this written on it:
-Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had
spent years in pain.

I turned 60 years with good health and retired from my job. Now I can use my time for better things of my interest.

My father at the age of 95 years died peacefully in his sleep without any long illness.

My son met with an accident and was best with a new life by a narrow escape. My car was completely damaged but nothing major had happened to my son.

This year was an immense blessing and it had passed well.

Let us remember we always have something to get thankful for.
