Count the Blessings, Not the Curses.

Modern Stories : Count the Blessings, Not the Curses.


A boy used to cry for new costly shoes.

His father was a worker in a factory and he had a meager salary. He bought cheap shoes but the boy was disappointed.

He cried a lot and left the house. He sat near a bus stop.

He wondered when he would get the expensive pair. Just then a beggar passed by on his crutches.

The boy was shocked to find that the beggar had no legs. He got enlightened. At least he had legs.

He thanked God for giving him legs and mother and father who were so caring.
