Hi, how are you? I hope you are fine and happy. Today I really want to tell you one of my favorite stories. It happened in a small village, on a beautiful day like today, the teacher asked her students: “Who thinks you from a poor family, let’s raise your hand”.
Some of hands raised except a boy who comes from the poorest family in that village. After class, the teacher asked that little boy why he didn’t raise his hand and he proudly answered: “My family is not poor, I have my mother and father and they both love me very much. I am rich.”
I bet his answer not only touched his teacher’s heart, but also my heart and hearts of other people.
That boy showed me that I have the most precious thing in my life, a thing which sometimes I almost forget.
How about you? Have you ever thought about the fact that you are really lucky when you have a house where you can come back anytime, where you have someone always waiting for you with hot soup, soft bed and lots of hugs and great deal of love?
We call it a “family”. And I am certain that everyone wants to have their own family. For real. I will prove my opinion by some “family quotes”, right now.
