No Shoes

No Shoes - Appreciating what we have ...
There was once a little boy named
La Lo Li.
He was in a way, a spoilt brat, you can see.
He was so lucky to get so many toys.
But he remained one of the most grumpy boys.
“I want this and that,” he would nag his mother most constantly.
To his poor mother, he was a headache and an agony.
One day he told his mother demandingly,
“I must have a pair of shoes – Reebok or Nike !”
“You have so many pairs of shoes already.
You should not be so demanding and greedy!”
But the bad boy kept on complaining. You would think he was good for nothing.
One evening his mother took him for a stroll.
It was at the beach where you could see waves roll.
La Lo Li suddenly heard someone singing.
The melodious voice was a most lovely thing.
“Who is singing so happily Mummy ?”
“Well Lo Li, walk on and we will soon see !”
They came upon a boy with a smile so sweet.
He had sparkling eyes, lovely hair and pure white teeth.
There he was singing happily – so carefree and meek.
When Lo Li looked down, he was shocked – the boy had no feet.
Misty tears flowed out of Lo Li’s little eyes.
He realized that to him, Life had been so nice.
He kissed his mother with these words flowing :“Mummy I’m sorry I’m always wanting.”
Dear Boys and Girls :Think of this carefully .Appreciate what you have happily.
So many suffering ones need our love and care.Count our Blessings – it is time to give and share.
The End.
May You Be Well And Happy !
With Metta,
Bro. Oh Teik Bin
