The Dark Candle

A man had a little daughter -- an only & much-beloved child. He lived for her -- she was his life. So when she became ill and her illness resisted the efforts of the best obtainable physicians, he became like a man possessed, moving heaven & earth to bring about her restoration to health.

His best efforts proved unavailing & the child died. The father was totally irreconcilable. He became a bitter recluse, shutting himself away from his many friends & refusing every activity that might restore his poise & bring him back to his normal self. But one night he had a dream.

He was in Heaven, & was witnessing a grand pageant of all the little child angels. They were marching in an apparently endless line past the Great White Throne. Every white-robed angelic child carried a candle. He noticed that one child's candle was not lighted. Then he saw that the child with the dark candle was his own little girl. Rushing to her, while the pageant faltered, he seized her in his arms, caressed her tenderly, & then asked: "How is it, darling that your candle alone is unlighted?" "Father, they often relight it, but your tears always put it out."

Just then he awoke from his dream. The lesson was crystal clear, & its effects were immediate. From that hour on he was not a recluse, but mingled freely & cheerfully with his former friends & associates. No longer would his darling's candle be extinguished by his useless tears.

Everyone In Our Life
is Going To Hurt Us
Sooner Or Later!
But we Have To Decide
What is more Important….?
The Pain
Or
the Person…….!!!

Life is short, so break the rules...
Forgive quickly, believe slowly,
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably,
And... Never regret anything that made you smile...
Every Little Smile can touch Somebody's heart.

Imp's of Three `L' in Life,
Live, Love & Laugh…….!!!
Have a great day!
