Gift of Life

A Compilation of Inspirational Stories and Anecdotes

8. You Are Very Valuable To My Life ( You make a difference to this world)

A middle-aged widow lived with her 12-year-old son. One evening after returning from office, she went to her son’s room and sat next to him.

Very excitedly she said, "Today, when I was working in our office, one of our regular clients came to me and said that she admired me and gave me a rose for being so sensitive to the needs of others and for being such a caring and considerate person. The card on the rose says,’ Who I am makes a difference.’ Then she gave me an extra rose with a card and asked me to gift it to somebody else whom I know as a similarly caring and loving person. As I was coming home tonight, I started thinking about whom to gift it. I started remembering you continuously and so I decided to gift this rose to you".

"Generally, I am very busy, and am not able to give you proper and enough attention. Sometimes, I scold you for not getting good grades in exams and for not taking care of your things. But today somehow, I realized you are a very important part of my life. You make a very big difference in my life. I love you very much".

The boy was startled and started crying. His whole body shook and he looked up at his mother and said, "From many days I felt like committing suicide because I thought you didn’t like me. But now I don’t need to do that."
