Lunch with God

Hi gooood DAY!!!

So how was this festive season for you??? I enjoyed it. During this season after a long time got to spend time with friends and family. Today while browsing through my mails came across this Short story & it relates to much needed "Value the people around you" thought. Please read it:
Lunch With God !

A little boy wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long trip
to where God
lived,
so he packed his suitcase with a bag of potato chips and a
six-pack of root
beer
and started his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he met an old woman.
She was sitting in
the park, just staring at some pigeons. The boy sat down
next to her and
opened
his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his root
beer when he
noticed
that the old lady looked hungry, so he offered her some
chips. She
gratefully
accepted it and smiled at him.*
*

Her smile was so pretty that the boy wanted to see it
again, so he offered
her
a root beer. Again, she smiled at him. The boy was
delighted! They sat
there all afternoon eating and smiling, but they never said
a
word.*
*

As twilight approached, the boy realized how tired he was
and he got up to
leave; but before he had gone more than a few steps, he
turned around, ran
back
to the old woman, and gave her a hug. She gave him her
biggest smile
ever.*
*

When the boy opened the door to his own house a short time
later, his mother
was surprised by the look of joy on his face. She asked
him, "What did you
do today that made you so happy?" He replied, "I
had lunch with
God." But before his mother could respond, he added,
"You know what?
She's got the most beautiful smile I've ever
seen!"*
*

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned
to her home. Her
son
was stunned by the look of peace on her face and he asked,
"Mother, what
did you do today that made you so happy?" She replied!
"I ate potato
chips in the park with God." However, before her son
responded, she added,
"You know, he's much younger than I
expected."*
*

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a
kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of
caring, all of
which
have the potential to turn a life around.

People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a
lifetime! Embrace
all
equally!*

Till then bye & T.c.
