TWO MEN SHARING A ROOM IN A HOSPITAL


TWO MEN SHARING A ROOM IN A HOSPITAL ~
Expand to read. It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking..
Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room...
One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..
Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and colour of the world outside.
The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.
Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm surrounded by flowers of every colour, and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.
One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.
Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
Days, weeks and months passed.
One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.
She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.
It faced a blank wall.
The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.
The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.

She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'
Epilogue:
There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.
Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.
'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present .'
The origin of this letter is unknown, but please pass it on.
Share it with friends and tag them so the cycle continues

Book Description:

Is there a way to describe the ties that bind us together? What happens when one of those ties is unexpectedly severed? Can everything else remain the same? Will the other ties hold strong?

Two years after her little brother's death, sixteen year old Emerson Caulfield returns to a home that she spent the last two years missing. In theory, everything should be the same. Her best friend, Matt, still lives next door. Her house is in the exact same condition as they left it. The scenery and hallways haven't changed, yet for Emerson, everything is completely different. The place may be the same, but Emerson is most certainly not. She returns home hurt, angry, and miles away from the girl she once was.


The 60,000 word novel alternates between the perspectives of Emerson, who is struggling to keep breathing on a daily basis, and Matt, who wants to have his old best friend back so badly that he is willing to overlook the fact that she has completely changed. Though their friendship and relationship is a major part of the story, it takes backseat to the unique bonds between siblings, what happens when your worst enemy is in fact yourself, and the hardships that come with growing up and changing.



About the Author


I'm not really going to write a biography. Though I am supportive of the high schools and colleges I have attended, it's probably not actually the most interesting stuff about me. I'm going to do a list of five really random things instead for now.

1) I like making lists. It's weird, and I never actually scratch things off of the list.
2) I sing and dance in the car like a maniac.
3) For the first six years of my life, I truly believed a shark lived under my bed. I watched Jaws at too young of an age.
4) Without a doubt, I am a night person. I am enormously grumpy when first woken up in the morning.
5) When I was younger, I read almost every Nancy Drew book, both new and old. I had a notebook, and I would take notes to see if I could figure out who the "bad guy" was before Nancy did. We probably tied.

DOWN MEMORY LANE OF KUALA LUMPUR

Down memory lane...... 

Guess these pics will bring back some nostalgic memory for some, if not for most of us......................unless you have lost some marbles !
See if you can still remember some of these places.
The Bok House was an old mansion on Jalan Ampang built in 1926 and completed in 1929 for a local millionaire, Chua Cheng Bok.

In the 1960s and up until its closure in 2001, the mansion housed an upscale restaurant called the Le Coq d'Or (The Golden Cockerel).

Part of the original millionaires row, Bok House was probably one of the most visible yet least remembered relic of early KL.
You will never guess or recognise this 1966 road...

Car is turning down towards Jalan Pudu from Jalan Bukit Bintang ( next to former Pavilion cinema .. NOT present day Pavilion mall ). Tung Shing Hospital is down farther right after the row of shop houses. The popular pre 60s Kum Leng Chinese restaurant is on top left next to cluster of trees.

Ongoing digging of roads were a common occurrence even back in the 60s.
Farther up from the Pudu area is Peel Road ( Jalan Peel ) - photo circa 1950s.

This was the main trunk road leading out of KL to the Southern part of the country pre 70s before the Loke Yew Highway and Seremban Highway were constructed.
A very very sad and unfortunate chapter of Malaysian history .. the May 13th 1969 racial riots. All Malaysians must unite to ensure this episode of our National history will never allow to happen again.

Photo shows the aftermath of the rampage at Campbell Road ( Jalan Dang Wangi ) before the left turning into Kampung Baru ( Jalan Raja Abdullah )
Newly completed Federal Highway with the EPF building still in the progress of being built at the junction with Jalan Gasing 1962.
Long before Ampang Park, Sungai Wang, BB Plaza or the newest Pavilion shopping malls .. the colonial " Prestigious " shopping places were Whileaway Laidlam, John Little's and Robinson's Dept Store located at Mountbatten Road ( Jalan Tun Perak ) which managed to stay in business till the 1970s ( photo ) with the top 2 floors being converted into a Chinese restaurant and night club.
A few MBS alumni worked at P&A dept of Tan Choong Motors, the sole agent / distributor of Datsun ( Nissan ) vehicles circa 1950s. Not a very popular Japanese vehicle brand then ...

Now known as Edaran Tan Choong, its Head office / show room is still based at Jalan Ipoh since its founding from the early 50s
View from the steps leading up to MBS.

Sultan Street Railway Station signage is clearly displayed on the roof of the station.

Directly in front of the station is Foch Avenue.
Front facade of Sultan Street Railway Station circa 1950s.

On the right next to the station was the infamous lane with the steps leading up to Wesley Methodist Church and MBS. Cheong Kee coffee shop ( a half way watering hole for the pre 1970s students ) was situated next to the lane .
The Jalan Sultan railway station was archived at more than a century old as evidenced on the timeline date of this photo. There was no Jalan Pudu yet and China town area was probably serviced by bullock tracks .
MBS was not located on Petaling Hill yet ( the present site ) and was sited in some shop houses around Kuala Lumpur Municipality.
1960s High Street - Jalan Tun HS Lee.

On left is the main office of Eu Yan San, the long established Chinese Medical Hall.. still at the same site today. Farther down the road is the Bangkok Bank.
One of the last ( if not the last ) 1920s era, Yoke Woo Hin Restaurant is ( almost ) as old as Sultan Street. Serves old Cantonese tradition cuisine including the annual festive dumplings, moon cakes, dim sum and char siew low wanton meen daily from 5am till late afternoon. Still popular and patronised by China town old timers
Down the steps of MBS Wesley Methodist Church :

Petaling Street looking towards Foch Avenue ( Jalan Cheng Lock ) early 1950s.
Building in front ( now 6 floors ) is Hakka Fui Chew Association. Present day Kota Raya Complex is next to it on the right.

Road on left is (was ) the very popular Cross Street, present Day Jalan Silang, with the Tai Tai ( Chinese rich ladies ) of the 50s - 70s era consisting of mainly Chinese gold smith shops. Some of the shops are still in business today, but facing competition from shopping malls and complex based gold smith shops.
Farther away from MBS : Bukit Bintang Park aka BB Park

This site used to be Hollywood Park way back in the 1930s. Back then, this part of town was considered the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. It was for precisely this reason that Pudu Prison (popularly called Pudu Jail) was built in 1895.

Hollywood Park was later acquired by movie giants of the day, Shaw Brothers. It was upgraded to BB Park with a carnival-like setting: there were cabarets and dance halls, cinemas, stage shows, restaurants, game stalls and even a boxing ring!

BB Park’s fortunes started to decline with the rising popularity of television and radio. It was closed in the early 1970s and redeveloped into Sungei Wang Plaza.

AN EASTER BONNET FOR LILY - BOOK REVIEW


This children book is a very thoughtful book – simple and joyful story associated with impactful, valuable and powerful messages. This book is amazingly great to build a strong foundation in shaping children’s attitude.

Her writing talents together with her well crafted skills cleverly and creatively combined,  allowed her to convey Life’s message in such a powerful and impactful manner. I was amazed with how her messages are closely associated with Easter festival is so freely, naturally and effectively described. Her story is full of expressions and emotion through simple conversation of spreading across good belief values and hope are remarkable. Amazingly well done, I must say. Through this simple story of hers, readers enjoy care free reading like a pleasant breeze blowing towards the reader. In fact, it is a light reading book clearly illustrated with the respective cute pictures to enhance the readers’ understanding and appealing interest especially for those children who do not like reading. Hence, her skillful, mindful and thoughtful craft of her writing coupled with lovely pictures will make her book shines, appealing and attractive amongst children. This will further raise their curiosity, thirst and desire to find much more in a fun manner.

Luckily Jodi Stone is not like many of us who have our own gifts but never use them to teach our younger generation by sharing our knowledge and stories. She believes in simplicity and was focus through her writing. If the reviews she’s received thus-far are any indication, the world needed it. She uses her talents to reach and teach others.

I received a review copy of the book for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review and no other compensation.

An Easter Bonnet for Lily though is a children book which provides us with more than one dimension. This is because it can help us view things not only in the physical sense, but also its related God wisdom. It serves wide and diverse needs especially for those who want their children to be exposed and learn the highest, positive and broader perspective on life from a young age. Don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself.

This book makes the children gain more exposure in Christian values. It may give them a valid solid, profound and sound understanding of life given by the Mighty Loving God.

What I enjoyed most about this book is its fascinating way of conveying Christian values underlying the festival of Easter. It reflects the beauty of spreading the amazing little seed in children hearts, which is often underestimated. That’s what makes this book truly worth reading.

As you read through the book, you’ll be able to visualise the exciting festival with the author’s imagination. This book is not meant to persuade or dissuade you – it’s meant to inform, ingrain and teach the readers in gaining the appropriate perspectives in our daily life.

This book is highly recommended for reading; it is also suitable as a gift to children or to be used as children home study subject or Sunday’s school.
The Title of the book is Simple and Precise and to the point.

An Easter Bonnet for Lily is definitely a noble goal, because it teaches children of the value of Christianity and prospers them to see things from the positive, profound and appropriate perspective, from God’s perspective through our daily Life. I must say that the reward of its wisdom is far more than your time, energy and money spent. Marvelous! In short, you will be empowered by its wisdom with this simple yet powerful festival. Early exposure through consistent and persistent application by living it in your life is the surest way to ensure that you shine through your life.

This book is also ideal for anyone who feels you had been living life without much meaning and is looking for inspiration to go off on his own, and dislike heavy reading.

Last, but not least, this book would make a lovely valuable and meaningful Easter or Christmas present.

All I can say is thank you!
