A young lady was waiting for her flight in the boarding room of a big airport.
As she would need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time. She also bought a packet of cookies.
She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.
Beside the armchair where the packet of cookies lay a man sat down in the next seat, opened his magazine and started reading.
When she took out the first cookies, the man took one also. She felt irritated but said nothing. She just thought: “What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch him for daring!”
For each cookie, she took, the man took one too. This was infuriating her but she didn’t want to cause a scene.
When only one cookie remained, she thought: “Ah…..What this abusive man do now?”
Then, the man taking the last cookie, divide it into half, giving her one half.
Ah! That was too much! She was much too angry now! In a huff, she took her book, her things and stormed to the boarding place.
When she sat down in her seat, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take her eyeglasses, and, to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, unopened! She felt so ashamed!! She realized that she was wrong……………..
She had forgotten that her cookies were kept at her purse.
The man had divided his cookies with her, without feeling angered or bitter. While she had been very angry, thinking that she was diving her cookies with him. And now there was no chance to explain herself, nor to apologize.
The moral of the story…….
There are three things that you cannot recover.
The word…………..after it’s said!
The occasion……….after the loss!
The time……………after it’s gone!
Hello! There are nice people;
Did anyone ever tell you just how special you are?
The light you emit even light a star.
Did anyone ever tell you how important you make others feel.
Somebody out there is smiling about love that is so real.
Did anyone ever tell you that many times when they were sad, your email made them smile a bit, in fact it made them glad.
For the time you spend sending things and sharing whatever you find, there are no words to thank you, but somebody think you are fine.
Did anyone ever tell you how much they like you? Well, my friends today I am telling you.
I believe that without a friend you are missing out on a lot!!!
Have a nice day, and I’m glad we are friends!!!!
