Good One – A BEAUTIFUL STORY
A little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store and dialed a number. The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:
Boy: "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) "I already have someone to cut my lawn."
Boy: "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now."
Woman: I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn.
Boy: (with more perseverance) "Lady, I’ll even sweep the floor and the stairs of your house for free.
Woman: No, thank you.
With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy.
Store Owner: "Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."
Boy: "No thanks,
Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one.

Snake and Ladder – the game that everyone of us might have played as a child and loved the moments when we climbed the ladder and got disappointed when we came down the snake. We prayed to God that the dice shows up the number that we wanted the most to climb a ladder or to skip the snake. Did anyone see it as something else than just a game? Does it teach us something? Well … I never gave it a thought till I read the following article -
