The Construction Worker

I looked out my window when i was in the bus on my way up to Genting Highlands, I saw this tall unfinished building still in construction. Then something struck me...

A construction worker's job may be low paid and many of us may look down on them.

But do you know that...

A construction worker is smart to put bricks together in the proper place..

Brave to go up to tall unfinished buildings.

Strong to carry and move tons of raw materials.

Enduring enough to go through striking sun and cloudy rainy days.

Patient to start from scrapes and finish the perfect building.

As a matter of fact...

They go through more hardship than us who do our job by merely moving into the building.

They have much more stress because if one slight mistake could cause the building to collapse.

We should be thankful because without them, we won't have a proper home.

We should be grateful because without their hard work, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the comfort of living indoors.

We should be appreciative because they build the foundation for humans to further expand dreams and hopes of what they wish for in the buildings.

A story Worth Reading & Sharing

This is about a man who tells how his booking an air ticket for his father, his first flight, brought emotions and made him realize that how much we all take for granted when it comes to our parents.

My parents left for our native place on Thursday and we went to the airport to see them off. In fact, my father had never traveled by air before, so I just took this opportunity to make him experience the same. In spite of being asked to book tickets by train, I got them tickets on Lufthansa.

The moment I handed over the tickets to him, he was surprised to see that I had booked them by air. The excitement was very apparent on his face, waiting for the time of travel. Just like a school boy, he was preparing himself on that day and we all went to the airport, right from using the trolley for his luggage, the baggage check-in and asking for window seat and waiting restlessly for the security check-in to happen. He was thoroughly enjoying himself and I, too, was overcome with joy watching him experience all these things.

As they were about to go in for the security check-in, he walked up to me with tears in his eyes and thanked me. He became very emotional and it was not as if I had done something great but the fact that this meant a great deal to him. When he said thanks, I told him there was no need to thank me.

But later, thinking about the entire incident, I looked back at my life. As a child how many dreams our parents have made come true. Without understanding the financial situation, we ask for football, dresses, toys, outings, etc. Irrespective of their affordability, they have satisfied to all our needs. Did we ever think about the sacrifices they had to make to accommodate many of our wishes? Did we ever say thanks for all that they have done for us?

Same way, today, when it comes to our children, we always think that we should put them in a good school. Regardless of the amount of donation, we will ensure that we will have to give the child the best, theme parks, toys, etc. But we tend to forget that our parents have sacrificed a lot for our sake to see us happy, so it is our responsibility to ensure that their dreams are realized and what they failed to see when they were young, it is our responsibility to ensure that they experience all those and their life is complete.

Many times, when my parents had asked me some questions, I have actually answered back without patience. When my daughter asks me something, I have been very polite in answering. Now I realize how they would have felt at those moments.

Let us realize that old age is a second childhood and just as we take care of our children, the same attention and same care need to be given to our parents and elders.

Rather than my dad saying thank you to me, I would want to say sorry for making him wait so long for this small dream. I do realize how much he has sacrificed for my sake and I will do my best to give the best possible attention to all their wishes. Just because they are old does not mean that they will have to give up everything and keep sacrificing for their grandchildren also. They have wishes, too.

Take care of our parents. Don't take them for granted and make them feel small and unwanted in their old age. They too have feelings, dreams, hope, aspirations, wishes (and many broken/shattered ones) too while sacrificing them to give us our needs and our wants.


Big Things come in Little Packages

Do not spoil what you have, by desiring what you have not;
but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.



''The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart.

"A Lady Of Her Own Mindset"

Call it the sixth month of the year; be it summer, spring, autumn or winter;
Be it the month that comes after May;
Describe and interpret it as any way philosophers and astrologers may.
Like the blue words, she is subtle yet she still manages to shine in the dark.
She is a person who stands on her own ground sticking to her own values and beliefs.
A heart of compassion and a heart full of love for herself and also for others.
She knows that she is unique the way she is because she believes in everyone is one of a kind in their own ways.
This is confidence, not cockiness.
This is self acceptance, not blowing her own trumpet.
Strong yet submissive; extrovert yet sometimes shies away; persistent yet indecisive; demanding yet contented.
She knows she is not perfect, as perfection is undefined.
But who cares, because she knows what she is inside out and she is never going to change that. =)
