A lesson remembered

When I was in fifth grade, we had a chapter in our english reader. It was about a boy who wanted a cute little puppy for his birthday. When the day came, his parents took him to a place where dogs were kept and taken care of. There he witnessed something that changed his decision. A big ferocious dog was being killed since it had been creating quite a havoc in the shelter, and was thus rendered insane. There they thought that it was best to put the dog to sleep (by killing him). The boy looked at the dog and felt as if the creature wanted to be taken home, though the thought of a cute little puppy sparkled in his mind.
The boy released himself from his parents grip and slowly came closer to the dog, he gently held his leash and the dog started following him to everyones amazement.
Love can pacify the greatest anger, its love that heals the biggest wound, its love the brings people closer and its love that can cover the longest distance and build bridges where there were none.
In the story the dog had been so brutally treated by its previous owner that now nothing made sense , the only thing that seemed familiar was hatred, but when the creature saw the love in the boys eyes, all the wounds that ever existed felt the healing touch of pure love.
We often wonder, what difference would it make if we would spend sometime with our loved ones, since while living in the same house, you get to meet each other every now and then! Well the answer is , it does make a difference, it would definately make a difference if you hug your mom and tell her that shes been amazing with all that she has done for you, it would make a difference, if you go out on a walk with your father, and talk to him about anything at all, it would make a difference if you sit with your grandparents and share your worries or joy with them, if nothing else, their blessings would guide you throughout your life, those who have kids should take out time for them, it feels amazing when our parents indulge in the activities we enjoy, making them even more exciting, your spouse would feel good if you keep reminding how much you love him/her, even if the person gets irritated dont worry, it definately make one feel elated ;)
Love is too strong a word to be described in a few lines, it has so many aspects to it, that sometimes one is just left amazed at its power, it has the ability to change the world, it resides every where , its we who forget about it..... but not for long, it keeps reminding us about its existence, a few words or just a little smile brings it back, pumping our heart and igniting the emotions within!
Its a secret jewel that each one of us has been blessed with..so guys !its time to show off;)

Musings what you have written is unambigously true. A pat of love always upturn things.
Rahmans music on hugs could also be remebered here.A ture heart felt ..tight ..simple hug, tells a lot.May be just a telepathy still something is conveyed .Do it & feel it

Hi Sana:)

Very beautifully written post.

If every one can follow what you have written there will be no fight, no quarrel, no misunderstanding among family and friends and coworkers and relatives.There will be peace, understanding and an abiding happiness.

But the point is how many are willing to follow these words of wisdom?

Have a lovely day:)

love is too hard to be described... People should make it felt through their small acts...
