Being A Good Person

There was an old man who was admitted in a hospital.<>

A young man would visit him every day, and sit with him for more than one hour. He would help him eat his food, and take his shower.<>

He would then take him walking in the garden of the hospital.<>

After that he would bring him back to his room and help him to lie down.<>

He would go away after reassuring himself that the old man was doing well.<>

One day the nurse entered his room, to give him medicine and inspect his condition, and said to him:<>

“May the Lord be always gracious to your kind and caring son. Every day he visits you and shows great care.”<>

The old man looked at her and closed his eyes and said to her:<>

“I wish he was one of my children. He is an orphan from the neighborhood where we live. I met him one day in the past, crying at the door of a Mosque, after his father died.<>

I comforted him and bought for him some candy to put a smile on his face. I neither saw him nor talked to him after that for a very long time.<>

When he grew up he came to discover where my wife and I were living. He would visit us every day to inspect our conditions.<>

When I later fell sick, he took my old wife to his home. He now comes to the hospital to see my treatment everyday.<>

One day I asked him: “My son why do you have to deal with us and care about us so much?”<>

He simply smiled and said: “The taste of the candy is still in my mouth.”<>

Moral: A beautiful deed will be harvested one day by those who planted it, no matter how long it takes.<>

No matter how much media talks about world going bad, there will be always more good people than bad ones.<>

Therefore never lose hope in being a good person and doing good deeds for others.<>
