Wisdom From A Laugh 49

The Will
A widow was at the lawyer’s office to hear the will of her late husband. When she learnt that her late husband had left the major portion of his fortune to his mistress, she was enraged. Filled with anger and hatred, she went to see the stonecutter to have the inscription on her husband’s tombstone changed.
“I’m sorry, ma’am,” the stonecutter told her. “I inscribed ‘REST IN PEACE’ based on your orders. It’s too late to change it now.”
“Very well,” the fuming widow said grimly, “in that case, just add these words : ‘UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN’”.
* Anger, illwill and hatred oftentimes drive a person to do the things you least expect ... and these include acts to inflict fear and pain in others.
* One who cannot let go of some unfortunate past happenings can react in negative ways ... and these bring suffering to oneself.
* When one learns to forgive, one will develop a mind of lightness, peace, happiness and freedom.
