Life lesson from a cookie

Read it all...it's worth it

Cookie Story


A young lady was waiting for her flight in a boarding room of a big airport. 

As she should need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book to spend her time. She also bought a pack of cookies.



She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP room of the airport, to rest and read in peace.



Beside the armchair where the packet of cookies lay, a man sat down in the next seat, opened his magazine and started reading.




When she took out the first cookie, the man took one also.
She felt irritated but said nothing.
She just thought, "What the nerve! If I was in the mood, I would punch him for daring!"

For each cookie she took, the man took one too...
This was infuriating her but she didn't want to cause a scene.


When only one cookie remained, she thought:
"Ah... what this abusive man do now?"

Then, the man taking the last cookie, divided it into half, giving her one half.

Ah! That's too much!

She was too much angry now!



In a huff, she took her book, her things and stormed to the boarding place.

When she sat down in her seat inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take her eyeglasses... and to her surprise... her packet of cookies was there, untouched... unopened!

She felt so ashamed!!!
She realized that she was wrong...
She forgotten that her cookies were kept in her purse. 



The man had divided his cookies with her, without feeling angered or bitter...
while she had been very angry, thinking that she was dividing his cookies with him.

And now, there are no chance to explain or apologize...

THERE ARE FOUR THINGS THAT YOU CANNOT RECOVER:


 
The stone... after the throw.


The word... after it's said.


The occasion... after the loss.


The time... after its gone.

Great Story!

If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world... There's nothing to it.
