Transcript

  • 1. The WindowCreated By Sompong Yusoontorn
  • 2. This is the story of the man who shared his happiness to a man sleeping next to his bed in the hospital. This offered a great and sweet moment, even both of them had a tough day!
  • 3. Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.
  • 4. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.
  • 5. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
  • 6. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs,
  • 7. their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.
  • 8. Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up,
  • 9. He would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.
  • 10. The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods
  • 11. where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.
  • 12. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats.
  • 13. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.
  • 14. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail,
  • 15. the man on the other side of the room would imagine the picturesque scene.
  • 16. One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by. Although the other man couldn't hear the band - he could see it.
  • 17. In his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.
  • 18. Days and weeks passed.
  • 19. One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths.
  • 20. Only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.
  • 21. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.
  • 22. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked, “Could I be moved next to the window?”
  • 23. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.
  • 24. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
  • 25. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.
  • 26. It faced a blank wall!!!
  • 27. The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.
  • 28. The man was blind and could not even see the wall. Perhaps he just wanted to encourage You!!!!!
  • 29. There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. Thank You Very much Sompong Yusoontorn
