we know. We miss out some warmth in human relationship to
give each other support. Treasure what you have. Just a

They were a loving couple and the boy was theapple of their
eyes. When the boy was around two years old, one morning the
husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for work so
he asked the wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the
cupboard. The mother, preoccupied in the kitchen totally
forgot the matter.
The boy playfully went to the medicine bottle and, fascinated
with itscolor, drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous
medicine meant for adults in small dosages.When the child
showed signs of poisoning the mother took him to the
hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was

The husband just said "I Love You Darling" .
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is proactive
behavior. He is indeed a genius in human relationships. The

thousand miles, begins with but with a single step." Take off
all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and
fears AND you will find things are actually not so difficult
as you think."
