“ A young lady was waiting for her flight in the boarding room of a big airport.
As she would wait for many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time. She bought, also, a packet of cookies.
She sat down on a armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.
Beside of the armchair where was the the packet of cookies, a man sat down, opened his magazine and started reading.
When she caught the first cookie, the man caught one also. She felt herself infuriate but didn’t say nothing. She just thought: “ What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch his eye to do not never forget this daring!”
To each cookie she caught, the man caught one either. That was letting her infuriated but she couldn’t react.
When remained only one cookie, she thought: “ah... What this abused man will do now?” Then, the man, divied the last cookie in the middle, giving her the half.
Ah! That was too much! She was too much angry! Then, she caught her book, caught her things and head to the boarding place.
When she sat down in an armchair, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to catch her eye glasses, and, for her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, closed!
She felt so much ashamed!! She realized that she was the wrong one... She had forgotten that her cookies were kept into her purse.
The man divided his cookies with her, wihtout feel infuriated, nervous or mad...
...while she was been very mad, thinking that was dividing her cookies with him. And there was no more time to explain herself... Nor to apologizes!”
What you want... ....is not always what you need! God never fails to grant our petitions, so keep on going for Him without doubting or murmuring. Today’s THORN... Is tomorrow’s FLOWER!
And guard yourselves against a day when no soul will in aught avail another, nor will intercession be accepted from it, nor will compensation be received from it, nor will they he helped.(Quran 2:48)
