A building construction work was going on near our office.

Lots of poor  labourers were working there and their small  children used to hold on to one another’s shirt and play “train-train”.

Someone would become the engine and others would become bogies.

Every day, these children used to take turns becoming the engine and bogies.

But, there was  one small boy wearing only a half pant who used to hold one small green *cloth* in his hand and become the guard daily.

So, once I went to him and asked him,”son, don’t you also wish to become an engine or a bogie some time?”

He softly replied, “Sir , I don’t have a shirt to wear so how will the other children catch me to make the train?

I could see the slight wetness in his eyes.

But, it gave me a lesson,

he could have cried and sat at home and cursed his parents for not being able to buy  him a shirt.

 But instead, he chose another way to play and enjoy himself..

 In life, we don’t get all things we desire and we keep complaining .

I dont have a bike,  I don’t have car , I don’t have this or that etc.

Life is like that, we need to make it beautiful  and be grateful for what we have .

This too shall pass,

*HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE* and stay blessed forever.

Thank you God!
