Blessings in Disguise
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing:
*Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I had to stay in the bed, due to this surgery, for a very long time.
*The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life with this publishing company.
*The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
*And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he met with an accident. He had to stay in hospital with the plaster for several weeks. The destruction of the vehicle was another great loss.
At the end he wrote: Oh God! It was such bad year!!
When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found her husband looking very sad & lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on that paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and replaced it with that of her husband’s.
When the writer saw this paper, he found his name written on it with following lines:
*Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain…
*I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace…
*The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical illness met his Creator…
*The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without getting any disability…
At the end she wrote:
This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well!!!
The writer was indeed happy and amazed at such beautiful and encouraging interpretation of the happenings in his life, that year!!!
Moral: In daily lives we must see that it’s not happiness that makes us grateful but grate-fulness that makes us happy.
