22nd June,2023

A little Boy came from School on Saturday and told his Father, my Teacher has given us Homework to Hug Ten people and tell them:

~Be Patient

~Trust life &

~I Love you

The Father said – “OK, we will go to the Mall tomorrow morning and do it “.

The Child woke up all spirited up in the Morning, got ready, went to his father & said –

“Let’s go !!”

The Father said -“there is Heavy rainfall, I fear nobody might be there.”

The Child still insisted.

So, the father drove in the horrible rainy weather to the mall.

They stood in the mall for One hour and the little Boy

Hugged Nine people.

His Father then said –

“Now let’s go, it’s raining heavily and we shouldn’t get stuck!”

Sad the Boy went along with his father’s orders.

As they were driving past,

the Boy pointed at a random house & said, “Please Father, just one person is remaining,

I will go to that House and

complete my Homework”!

The Father smiled and pulled the car over.

The Boy went to the door and began to ring the bell and pound the door strongly with his knuckles.

He kept waiting.

Finally, the Door was opened gently.

A Lady came out with a very sad look and gently asked:

What can I do for you, Son?

With radiant eyes and a bright smile, the Boy said:

“Ma’am my teacher has told to Hug Ten people and tell them:

Be Patient,

Trust Life and

I Love you!

I have Hugged Nine People.

May I Hug you and pass the Message to you.

The Lady embraced him, and started crying profusely.

On seeing that the Boy’s Father came out of the car.

He went to the Lady and asked – “Any problem Madam?”

She composed herself,

took them inside, gave them a cup of Tea and then told his Father -“My Husband died a while ago leaving me totally alone in this World.

Today Morning the loneliness took over me.

since Morning I have been thinking that this is the End of the Road for me.

Then I took a Chair and a rope to my Bedroom and decided to end my Life.

As I was seeing the World for One Last time, I begged for Forgiveness to God and then heard this knock.

I thought to leave it, but then nobody comes to visit me.

When I opened the door,

I couldn’t believe it when my eyes saw this little Boy and when he said-

Be Patient,

Trust Life and

I Love you!

I knew it was a Message from God.

Suddenly I realized I don’t want to Die anymore and decided to make something productive of my Life.

Give Positive Thoughts to People.

Tell them you stand by them.

And even if nothing else, just Listen to them, give them a hug, you could be the medium that saves a Life!

Hug Ten people today & stay blessed forever.
