I head this story about God answering prayers.
A lady was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn’t find a parking place.
Looking up to heaven she said, “Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place, I will go to Mass every single Sunday for the rest of my life and also give up smoking!”
Surprisingly, a parking spot suddenly became available.
She looked up again and said, “Never mind, I found one.”
How often do we forget to give credit to others when something good happens?
I am not having a religious talk here; I am talking about appreciation to the people around us.
Lots of good things happen to us because of other people.
Our parents, siblings, friends, spouse, colleagues – their contribution to our life is not small. But we seldom take time to consider their contribution to our lives and appreciate what they have done. We think what we have done is achieved solely by ourselves too often.
It’s okay to give credit to your own effort. Sure, we can rightly do so.
But don’t forget to turn to other people’s contribution. If you haven’t done that enough, today is the day when you start living your life with a sense of appreciation. It’ll transform the whole picture of your future steps.
