Human Relationship

A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage.
They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When
the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine
bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it
in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by
its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for
adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital. He died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how she was going to face her

When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.


1. What were the five words ?

2. What is the implication of this story?

The husband just said "I am with you Darling".
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The
child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child.
What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband.
That is what he gave her. If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world.
"A journey of a
thousand miles begins with a single step. " Take off all your envies,
jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears. And you will find
things are actually not as difficult as you think.
