Life lessons from People you least expect from…
Few days ago, I hired a plumber to help me repairs at my home. He already had a rough & tiresome day — a flat tire, his electric drill fault, his old car break down, his tiffin was spoilt, he lost his wallet, and his bank was calling for loan repayments. In spite of all the tension and stress he finished the repairs.
Since his car broke down, I offered to drive him home. While I drove him home, he sat silently, but I could mark his agony and restlessness.
On arriving, he invited me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both hands and closed his eyes.
When the door opened, he was smiling and happy. In seconds he underwent an amazing transformation.
He hugged his two small children, gave his wife a kiss, laughed, and never even slightly make them feel the troubles that he had encountered that day.
I was astonished, aback and curious. Seeing my inquisitive eyes he told “Oh, that’s my Trouble Tree. My best friend. My trouble carrier for the night”. He replied.
“I know I can’t help having troubles on the job, but one thing’s for sure, those troubles don’t belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of them. Then in the morning I pick them up again.”
He smiled and shared secret that “when I come out in the morning to pick ’em up, there aren’t nearly as many as I remember hanging there the night before !”
🌷 Life may be a burden of worries, but there is a way to keep our loved ones untouched from these worries. Time will heal every wound.
Since that time, I have put an imaginary hook in front my main door. And I hang my worries there, before I ring the door bell when I reach home from work.
