A Couple's Heartbreak
A boy was born to a couple after eleven
years of marriage. They were a loving couple and
the boy was the apple of their eyes. When the boy
was around two years old, the husband saw a medicine
bottle left open one morning. He was late for work
so he asked the wife to cap the bottle and keep
it in the cupboard. The mother, preoccupied in the
kitchen, totally forgot about the matter.

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the
bottle and fascinated with its color, drank it all.
It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for
adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed,
the mother hurried him to the hospital, where he
died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified
to face her husband.
When the distraught father came to the hospital
and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and
uttered just four words.
What do you think were the four words?
The husband just said "I Love You Darling."
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is proactive
behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought
back to life. There is no point in finding fault
with the mother. Besides, if only he have taken
time to keep the bottle away, this will not have
happened. There was no point in attaching blame
to his wife. She had also lost her only child. What
she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy
from the husband. That is what he gave her.

Sometimes we spend time asking who is responsible
or who to blame, whether in a relationship, in a
job or with the people we know. We miss out some
warmth in human relationship in giving each other
support. After all, shouldn't forgiving someone
we love be the easiest thing in the world to do?
Treasure what you have. Don't multiply pain, anguish
and suffering by holding on to forgiveness.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of
perspective, there would be much fewer problems
in the world.
Take off all your envies, jealousies, unwillingness
to forgive, selfishness and fears and you will find
things are actually not as difficult as you think.
