The Little Boy

Just sharing a little story with you all …

Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said: “How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?”

The surgeon said, “I’m sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn’t make it.”

Sally said, “Why do little children get cancer? Doesn’t God care any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?”

The surgeon asked, “Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university.”

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good-bye to son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.

“Would you like a lock of his hair?” the nurse asked.

Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy’s hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, “It was Jimmy’s idea to donate his body to the university for study. He said it might help somebody else. “I said no at first, but Jimmy said, ‘Mom, I won’t be using it after I die. Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.” She went on, “My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could.”

Sally walked out of Children’s mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy’s belongings on the seat beside her in the car. The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy’s belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son’s room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them. She laid down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said:

“Dear Mom,

I know you’re going to miss me; but don’t think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just ’cause I’m not around to say I LOVE YOU. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won’t be so lonely, that’s okay with me. He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn’t like the same things us boys do. You’ll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don’t be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything. The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn’t look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me to see GOD! And guess what, Mom? I got to sit on God’s knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important. That’s when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good-bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn’t allowed. Well, you know what Mom? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter. I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him ‘Where was He when I needed him?’ “God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children.

Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I’ve written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn’t that cool? I have to give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I’m, sure the food will be great.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don’t hurt anymore. The cancer is all gone. I’m glad because I couldn’t stand that pain anymore and God couldn’t stand to see me hurt so much, either. That’s when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery! How about that?

Signed with Love from: God, Jesus & Me.”


Footprints in the sand

One night I had a dream–
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest times in my life.
This really bothered me and I questioned the Lord about it.
“Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,
you would walk with me all the way,
but I have noticed that during the most troublesome times in my life
there is only one set of footprints.
“I don’t understand why in times when I needed you most,
you should leave me.”
The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child,
I love you and I would never, never leave you
during your times of trial and suffering.
“When you saw only one set of footprints,
it was then that I carried you.”


@Elven_tales Unas palabras de sabiduría

Acuerdate de lo bueno

Cuando el cielo este gris, acuérdate cuando lo viste profundamente azul.

Cuando sientas frío, piensa en un sol radiante que ya te ha calentado.

Cuando sufras una derrota, acuérdate de tus triunfos y de tus logros.

Cuando necesites amor, reviven tus experiencias de afecto y ternura.

Acuérdate de lo que has vivido y de lo que has dado con alegría.

Recuerda los regalos que te han hecho, los abrazos y besos que te han dado, los paisajes que has disfrutado y las risas que de ti han brotado.

Si esto has tenido, lo puedes volver a tener y lo que has logrado, lo puedes volver a ganar.

Alégrate por lo bueno que tengas y por lo bueno de los demás, acéptalos tal cual son; desecha los recuerdos tristes y dolorosos, y sobre todo no tengas ningún rencor, no te lastimes más.

Piensa en lo bueno, en lo amable, en lo bello y en la verdad.

Recorre tu vida, detente en donde haya bellos recuerdos y emociones sanas y vívelas otra vez.

Visualiza aquel atardecer que te emocionó.

Revive esa caricia espontánea que se te dio.

Disfruta nuevamente de la paz que ya has conocido, piensa y vive bien.

Allí en tu mente están guardadas todas las imagenes;

¡Y sólo tú decides cuáles has de volver a mirar!.

No hay carga que se nos dé y no tengamos la capacidad de llevar.

Busca siempre vivir el presente aprendiendo del pasado, no cargues con situaciones y problemas que ya han pasado.

Piensa en esto:

¿Cuál era tu mayor problema hace 10 años?

Probablemente ahora sea nada.

Ahora, si dentro de 10 años tus problemas actuales no van a ser nada

¿Por qué vivir tristes por ellos?

Madre Teresa de Calcuta


Do it anyway



Look at the Baobab trees, Little Prince!

When i was a little girl, i used to read this book over and over… I would cry at the end because it wasn´t the usual happy ending but that was ok because every time i opened that book i would start a journey with The Little Prince, and like him i learned about life and the simple things that we forget when we grow up.

Things like this:

 It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye”

“You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.”

“That is the hardest thing of all. It is much harder to judge yourself that to judge others. If you suceed in judging yourself, it´s because you´re truly a wise man.”

“Language is the source of misunderstandings.” 

The Little Prince By Antoine De Saint Exupery is children´s book and it will be always one of my favourites books in the world. A little boy coming to earth from the smallest planet learns about love and returns to his home to be with his rose, a unique flower for him because he took care of her ( in the book the flower behaves like a person); it is the most lovely story i´ve ever read, so simple but for me full of wisdom, that wisdom only childs have when they are discovering the world around them like Little Princes and Princesses.

Anyway, in the book The Little Prince had to pull out baobab trees from the ground because his planet was too small and the trees would destroy it so when i found this picture today, i try to imagine the expression on the the little prince face if he ever saw baobab trees like this…..

My first post is about love

I would like to start my blog with a beautiful poem by E.E Cummings .

I carry your heart with me

(I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it
(anywhere I go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by
only me is your doing, my darling)
I fear no fate
(for you are my fate, my sweet)
I want no world
(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart

(I carry it in my heart)
