#38-Stay Blessed

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 stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a 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 in 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 had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year!!

When the writer’s wife entered the room, she found he husband looking sad lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on side of her husband’s writing.

When the writer saw this paper, he found this written on it:

  • 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 condition 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 same incidents but different viewpoints. If we ponder with this viewpoint that what could have happened more, we would truly become thankful to the Almighty.

Moral : In daily lives we must see that its not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy.

There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.

Stay Blessed !! Have a Great Day 🙂

  1. Thank you for reminding us to be thankful for everything that we have in our lives.
    Humans tend to forget the ‘present’ which is indeed not called so without reason!
    May all realize the Truth!

  2. Be Happy,Be happy,Be thankful,Be thankful 1s the mantra we have to repeat

    The vedas also repeat Ohm Shanti,Om Shanti,Om Shanti

    All the same,isn’t it?

  3. ok… Your article reminded me this simple Chinese short story : One fellow is crying as his sandals were stolen outside the temple, another man came and showed him a beggar without legs near by temple and said ” be happy for GOD has given you legs and don’t cry for your sandals” 🙂

  4. Thank you for opening the positive view for the every thing. The thoughts itself acts as blessings to stay us blessed.
