This is a true story that happened in Japan.
In order to renovate the house, a Japanese man breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls.
When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there, because a nail from outside had been hammered into one of its feet.
He sees this, feels pity, & at the same time curious. When he checks the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago, when the house was built!!!
The lizard had survived in such a position for 5 yrs!!!
In a dark wall partition for 5 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling.
Then he wondered how this lizard had survived for 5 years without moving a single inch, since its foot was impaled!
So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, to see what it has been doing, and how it has been eating
Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in it’s mouth.
Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply.
For the lizard that was impaled by the nail, another lizard had been feeding it for the past 5 years.
Imagine? It has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do, that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind cannot do.
Please, never abandon your loved ones. Don’t turn your back on people because they are in difficulty. Don’t see yourself as more intelligent or the best. You may be a bit luckier today but life is uncertain and can change things tomorrow….
A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loved you against all odds..
Before you say something just remember…
*It takes a moment to break, but an entire lifetime to make …………*
God created space within our fingers so that we can hold hands……
Be there for somebody today.
Love one another!!
