Short Stories - 7 Awesome Events

1. LOOKING BACK:
Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a
 research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class.
 When I asked her to define success in her own words,
 she said, “Success is when you look back at your life
 and the memories make you smile."

2. LOVE CONQUERS PAIN:
Today, after I watched my pet get run over by a car,
 I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying.
 And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

3. LOOKING BACK:
Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters
 stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother
 uttered her last coherent words before she died. 
She simply said, 
“I feel so loved right now. We should have
 gotten together like this more often.”


4. AFFECTION:
Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he
 passed away in a small hospital bed. 
About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the
 first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.


5. JOY:
Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old cancer patient
 laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, 
I suddenly realized that I need to stop complaining 
about my life and start celebrating it again.


6 KINDNESS:
Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately
 struggling on crutches with my broken leg and 
offered to carry my backpack and books for me. 
He helped me all the way across campus to my class
 and as he was leaving he said, 
“I hope you feel better soon.”


7. SHARING:
Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from
 Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days
 and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. 
Then my friend offered him the sandwich he was about to eat.
 The first thing the man said was, “We can share it.”


Cheers to life..!
