Thank you Allah

Yesterday on the way back from the market, mommy saw a small boy just a few months older than me probably, asleep on the roadside. Although its a common sight in India, but this one touched her heart so much she couldn't resist taking a pic.





The boys parents were working on a construction site while he tried to take a nap in the scorching heat, lying on top of an empty cement sack holding on to his chappals. Mom says he looked so cute n adorable that she had more than half a mind to get him home... but then... she didn't. How many times we come across such circumstances where we are torn between reality and practicality. And how trying those times are.

She wants to use this pic here, just to remind us all how grateful we all should be for all that we have & must thank Allah. I pray that others too are equally blessed.
Because........

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today; thank God for it - Anonymous.
