Feeling Thankful

Yesterday evening as I was at the playground with the gals, I saw a boy who’s around 4-5 yo on a play equipment behaving very well. He wasn’t jumping or running around and screaming like most kids there. He just stood on top of one of the play equipment with his dad watching over him closely. At one glance, he looked rather normal but on a second look, I noticed that his fingers were slightly turned inwards and his actions were rather slow. He also couldn’t really talk. I think he must be mentally slow. When I saw him, my heart felt for him and his dad. I then suddenly felt so thankful that I have 2 normal kids who are ever active, mischievous and naughty. I then realized that sometimes many of us have taken what we have for granted. It’s only when we see other people’s misfortunes that we are thankful and grateful to God for what we have.

  1. Your post really made me want to cry. Though I didn’t see the boy and his dad, I felt for them too. You are right. We really must be thankful and don’t take things for granted. Thanks for reminding me ;D

  2. Thanks for sharing the story. I’m in a very trying period now…You reminded me to be thankful as I’ve been blessed with 2 healthy girls. A lil mischievous & cranky is a very small problem after all.

  3. Thx for the reminder. Must always be thankful that I’m blessed with healthy normal kids, even tho they drive me up the wall all the time.
