Wisdom From Humor 89
At The Grave …
After placing some flowers on the grave of his mother who had recently passed away, a man noticed another man kneeling at a grave a distance away. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity.
The first man approached this man and heard him wailing at the tombstone, “Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?”
The first man was rather puzzled and said to him,
“Sir, I don’t mean to interfere with your private grief. For whom do you mourn so deeply …
A child, a parent or an intimate friend?”
The mourner replied after a moment, “My wife’s first husband.”
The circumstances under which a person suffers can be most unexpected. To cope better with the trials and tribulations of life, one has to practice patience, tolerance, understanding and wisdom.
