Attitude of Gratitude

A sweet short story worth reading....

Nearby, a building construction work was going on.

Lots of poor  labourers were working there and their small  children used to hold onto 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 .."beta, don't u 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 abused his parents for not affording 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 greatful of what we have ..🙏🏼

HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE✅
