SWEET APPLES!

Dear Readers:

I've known Wayne since I was about eight years old, which means for well over half a century now. Because of time and distance we see each other infrequently, but every once in a while he sends me something that has a special meaning ........., and this is one of them!



Subject: SWEET APPLES - a great lesson!

A lovely little girl was holding two apples in both hands.

Her mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile, "My sweetie, could you Give your mom one of your two apples?"

The girl looked up at her mom for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mom felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mom, and said, "Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.">

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgment.

Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.

Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because it's simply part of their job but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologize first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the People around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you As a true friend.

Those who often text or email you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are In their heart.

Those who take out time to chat with you, does not mean they are jobless or less busy, but they know The importance of keeping in touch.

One day, all of us will get separated from each other; we will miss our Conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had.

Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare... One day our children will see our pictures and ask, "Who are these people?" And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is Touched with a strong word and you will say, "IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH."

Sending this to all my friends that I shall never forget.

Thank you for your friendship, God bless.
