Who packed the parachute

Who packed your parachute
Air Comandore Vishal was a Jet Pilot. In a combat mission his fighter plane was destroyed by a missile. He however ejected himself and parachuted safely. He won acclaims and appreciations from many.

After five years one day he was sitting with his wife in a restaurant. A man from another table came to him and said “You’re Captain Vishal ! You flew jet fighters. You were shot down!”

“How in the world did you know that?” asked Vishal.

“I packed your parachute,” the man smiled and replied.
Vishal gasped in surprise and gratitude and thought if parachute hadn’t worked, I wouldnโ€™t be here today.

Vishal couldn’t sleep that night, thinking about that man. He wondered how many times I might have seen him and not even said ‘Good morning, how are you?’ or anything because, he was a fighter pilot and that person was just a safety worker”

So friends, who is packing your parachute?
Everyone has someone who provides what they need to make it through the day.

We need many kinds of parachutesโ€“ we need the physical parachute, the mental parachute, the emotional parachute, and the spiritual parachute.
We call on all these supports before reaching safety.

Sometimes in the daily challenges that life gives us, we miss what is really important.

We may fail to say hello, please, or thank you, congratulate someone on something wonderful that has happened to them, give a compliment, or just do something nice for no reason.

As you go through this week, this month, this year, recognize the people who pack your parachute.

๐Ÿ˜Š I just want to thank everyone who packed my parachute this year one way or the other– through your words, deeds, prayers etc!! Don’t want to take any of you for granted .

Wishing you all a pleasant and a memorable end to 2019 and an awesome beginning of 2020. ..๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™
A Happy Joyful and Peaceful New Year๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒป๐Ÿซ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŽ‚
