No Need to Be Discouraged

==========================

.

As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a
local Little League baseball game that was being played in a
park near my home.
.


As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked
one of the boys what the score was.
.


“We’re behind 14 to nothing,” he answered with a smile on his
face.
.


“Really,” I said. “I have to say you don’t look very
discouraged.”
.


“Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look.
.


“Why should we be discouraged?
We haven’t even been up to bat yet.”
.


I don’t know who wrote the above joke but when life has you
down, when it appears you are losing, when you think the odds Read More

A MountainWings Moment - You Make A Difference‏

You Make A Difference
======================

.

A teacher in New York decided to honor each of her seniors in
high school by telling them the difference they each made.

.

She called each student to the front of the class, one at a time.

.

First she told each of them how they had made a difference to
her and the class. Then she presented each of them with a blue
ribbon imprinted with gold letters, which read,

.

“Who I Am Makes a Difference.”

.

Afterwards the teacher decided to do a class project to see what
kind of impact recognition would have on a community. She gave
each of the students three more ribbons and instructed them to
go out and spread this acknowledgment ceremony.

.

Then they were to follow up on the results, see who honored whom
and report back to the class in about a week.

.

One of the boys in the class went to a junior executive in a
nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career
planning. He gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt.

.

Then he gave him two extra ribbons and said, “We’re doing a
class project on recognition, and we’d like you to go out, find
somebody to honor, give them a blue ribbon, then give them the
extra blue ribbon so they can acknowledge a third person to keep
this acknowledgment ceremony going. Then please report back to
me and tell me what happened.”

.

Later that day the junior executive went in to see his boss who
had been noted, by the way, as being kind of a grouchy fellow.

.

He sat his boss down, and he told him that he deeply admired him
for being a creative genius. The boss seemed very surprised.
The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of
the blue ribbon and would he give him permission to put it on
him. His surprised boss said, “Well, sure.”

.

The junior executive took the blue ribbon and placed it right on
his boss’s jacket above his heart. As he gave him the last
extra ribbon, he said, “Would you do me a favor? Would you take
this extra ribbon and pass it on by honoring somebody else.
The young boy who first gave me the ribbons is doing a project
in school, and we want to keep this recognition ceremony going
and find out how it affects people.”

.

That night the boss came home to his 14-year-old son and
sat him down. He said, “The most incredible thing happened to
me today. I was in my office and one of the junior executives
came in and told me he admired me and gave me a blue ribbon for
being a creative genius.

.

Imagine. He thinks I’m a creative genius.

.

Then he put this blue ribbon that says “Who I Am Makes a
Difference” on my jacket above my heart. He gave me an extra
ribbon and asked me to find somebody else to honor. As I was
driving home tonight, I started thinking about whom I would
honor with this ribbon and I thought about you.

.

I want to honor you. My days are really hectic, and when I come
home I don’t pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I scream
at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your
bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just wanted to sit
here and well, just let you know that you do make a difference
to me.

.

Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my
life. You’re a great kid and I love you!”

.

The startled boy started to sob and sob, and he couldn’t stop
crying. His whole body shook.
He looked up at his father and said through
his tears, “Dad, earlier tonight I sat in my room and wrote a
letter to you and Mom explaining why I had killed myself and
asking you to forgive me.

.

I was going to commit suicide tonight after you were asleep.
I just didn’t think that you cared at all. The letter is
upstairs.

.

I don’t think I need it after all.”

.

His father walked upstairs and found a heartfelt letter full of

.

A poor couple who lived in a small village in Southern KENYA had only one son. They gave him the education they managed to afford and their son graduated as an Engineer from the nearby University..

.

Eventually, he got married to a rich girl.

.

Initially, they lived with his parents in the village. Soon the wife got tired of village life and persuaded the husband to move to the city and leave his old parents behind.

.

As time passed by the husband saw an advertisement in the newspaper about a vacancy in Juba (Sudan).

.

The Mother prayed God’s blessings for him and begged him not to forget them. He was successful and lived in Juba for years with his wife. Regularly, in the beginning, he sent money to his parents.

.

Eventually with time, he stopped and forgot that his parents ever existed. Every Sunday he went to church to pray to God.  Everytime, immediately after prayer, he always envision someone in his dream, telling him that his prayer was not accepted.

.

One day he related his story to his Pastor who advised him to go back to Kenya to visit his parents.

.

The man flew to Sudan and reached the boundary of the village. Everything had changed. He could not locate his parents’ house. He asked a young boy about the whereabouts of his parents.

.

The boy directed the man to a house and said: “In this house lives an old blind lady who lost her husband five years ago. I
also hear people saying that, she has a son who migrated to Sudan 40 years ago and never came back again.” The boy continued, “The Old lady has always been crying, longing to see her son.”  The son kept quiet and entered the home finding his mother on the
bed. He tip-toed as not to wake her up.

.

He heard the mother whispering or mumbling something. He got closer to hear her voice. This is what the mother was saying:

~The Cypress Tree~

.

A little cypress tree was planted on a knoll along the
coastal shore. Its beauty caught the eye of many
tourists who made a point to stop and view its
shapely form. The tree attracted more and more
admirers and it soon had quite a following. It grew
lovelier with every season. “I must be quite
remarkable,” the tree thought in his heart.

.

Through the years the howling winds and thundering
waves blew upon the shore, and the rains came in
torrents, contorting its fair form. The broken tree that
had drawn so much admiration no longer stood so
lovely, straight and proud. The storms and winds had
left it naked and ashamed. Its trunk and limbs were
now gnarled and deformed and it was all bent over.
“I am ugly,” said the tree.

.

“Oh look,” a cry was heard, and all the people gasped
as they looked more closely at the tree. “It is
transformed and is far more beautiful than it ever
was before the storms. It has been tried and it has
overcome. Now it’s strong and rugged. It has
character and strength. Now it makes shade in
which to rest, and it has strong branches in which
the birds can build their nests and children can play.
Its roots have gone down deep into the soil, enabling
it to withstand any future test. It is an example for
all of us, that we too might endure when the storms
of life come our way.

.

The wretched tests of life that seem to threaten to
