Does This Sound Like You, or Someone You Know!!!?

A young lady was waiting for
her flight
in the boarding room of a big
airport.
As she would need to wait many hours,
… she decided to buy a book to
spend her
time. She also bought a packet
of
cookies. She sat down in an armchair, in
the VIP
room of the airport, to rest and
read in
peace. Beside the armchair
where the packet of cookies lay, a man sat
down in
the next seat, opened his
magazine and
started reading.
When she took out the first cookie, the
man took one also. She felt
irritated
but said nothing. She just
thought:
“What a nerve! If I was in the mood I
would punch him for daring!”
For each cookie she took, the
man took
one too. This was infuriating her
but she didn’t want to cause a
scene.
When only one cookie remained,
she
thought: “ah… What would this
abusive man do now?”
Then, the man, taking the last
cookie,
divided it into half, giving her
one half.
Ah! That was too much! She was much
too angry now!
In a huff, she took her book,
her things
and stormed to the boarding
place. When she sat down in her seat,
inside
the plane, she looked into her
purse to
take her eyeglasses, and to her
surprise, her packet of cookies was
there, untouched, unopened!
She felt so ashamed! She
realized that
she was wrong… She had
forgotten that her cookies were kept in
her purse.
The man had divided his cookies
with
her, without feeling angered or
bitter. “While she had been very angry,
thinking that she was dividing
her
cookies with him. And now there
was no
chance to explain herself, nor to apologize.”
There are 4 things that you
cannot
recover:
The stone… after the throw!
The word…after it’s said! The occasion…after the loss!
The time…after it’s gone.
Cherish Every Moment and Fill It
With
Love and Care For Everyone.
