    The Wooden Bowl

    I guarantee you will remember the tale of the Wooden Bowl tomorrow, a
    week from now, a month from now, a year from now.

    A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in- law, and four-
    year old grandson. The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight was
    blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together at the table.

    But the elderly grandfather' s shaky hands and failing sight made
    eating difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he
    grasped the glass, milk spilled on the tablecloth.

    The son and daughter-in- law became irritated with the mess. 'We must
    do something about father,' said the son. 'I've had enough of his
    spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor.'

    So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner. There,
    Grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner.
    Since Grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a
    wooden bowl!

    When the family glanced in Grandfather' s direction, sometime he had a
    tear in his eye as he sat alone. Still, the only words the couple had
    for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

    The four-year-old watched it all in silence. One evening before
    supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the
    floor. He asked the child sweetly, 'What are you making? Just as
    sweetly, the boy responded, 'Oh, I am making a little bowl for you
    and Mama to eat your food in when I grow up. The four-year-old smiled
    and went back to work.

    The words so struck the parents so that they were speechless. Then
    tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken,
    both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took
    Grandfather' s hand and gently led him back to the family table.

    For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And
    for some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer
    when a fork was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled.

    On a positive note, I've learned that, no matter what happens, how
    bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

    I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she
    handles four things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and
    Christmas tree lights.

    I've learned that, regardless of your relationship with your parents,
    you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

    I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making
    a 'life.

    I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

    I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt
    on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

    I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. But if
    you focus on your family, your friends, the needs of others, your
    work and doing the very best you can, happiness will find you.

    I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I
    usually make the right decision.

    I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

    I've learned that every day, you should reach out and touch someone.

    People love that human touch -- holding hands, a warm hug, or just a
    friendly pat on the back.

    I've learned that I still have a lot to learn!
