Dealing With People In Our Lives

On the net, there are many things that get circulated and some of these are motivational stories.  I was reading the story of The Wooden Bowl one day (for the umpteenth time!) and it never fails to surprise me how some people never realize that when they mistreat their parents, their own little children are watching them and 'learning' how to treat THEM when they get old.  Poetic justice, some may say but I just think it is sad.

However at the end of The Wooden Bowl, someone tagged on that you can learn a lot about people by the way they react to a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage and a tangle of Christmas lights.

I thought of someone I love very much and laughed.  For he thinks rainy days are times to have a good sleep, he is super patient with the elderly, he can scream bloody murder if anyone dares to lose his luggage and he would probably end up flinging the tangled Christmas lights at the wall & buying new ones (so far none of our Christmas lights have dared to tangle themselves up).

I'm so glad I have him....:)

Thanks for sharing "The Wooden Bowl" story! I read other similar stories before, and I never get tired of them. They're so simple but the message is clear.

But, honestly, dealing with other people (other than my family and friends) is something I have yet to 'master'. *sigh*

"I've learned I still have a lot to learn!" (This is so true!)

Hi, Ruthv...learning is a lifelong process...we just need to be open to it :)
