This week’s nugget is based on a story in which a mother asks her son a question on the human body.
Thinking that sound was very important to him, he answered “Ears, Mommy.”
She said, “No, there are many people who are deaf but keep thinking about it and I will ask you again.”
The next time she asked him, he answered, “Mommy, sight is very important to everybody, so it must be our eyes.”
She answered “You are learning fast, but the answer is not correct because there are many people who are blind.”
Stumped again, he tried other answers but each time her answer was “No, but you are getting smarter child.”
Finally seeing the confusion on her son’s face she told him, “This question is very important and that is why I wanted you to think and answer. Son, the most important body part is your shoulder.”
Surprised he asked her, “Is it because it holds up my head?”
She replied, “No, it is because it can hold the head of a friend or a loved one when they cry. The most important body part is actually the most unselfish part because it is sympathetic to the pain of others!”
In this world it’s refreshing to find
Someone who still has the time to be kind,
Someone who still has the faith to believe
That the more you give the more you receive,
Someone who’s ready by thought,word or deed
To reach out a hand in the hour of need.
