Hey friends, its been 12 days now since I got into the UAE on vacation with my wife and I still havent gotten myself together to write a good post on how exactly I feel about this place, its been one form of surprise to another, im so amazed at how organized things are and consistently compare things here with back home, you know the end result PAIN. I have however kept my post about my vacation till I return. lets share another story from my motivation weekly Ayo Daniels;
A doctor entered the hospital in hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call as fast as he could, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father going and coming in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: ‘Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you have a sense of responsibility? The doctor smiled and said ‘I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call and now I wish you would calm down so that I can do my work’
‘Calm down! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now, what will you do? said the father angrily. The doctor smiled again and replied doctors cannot prolong lives, go and intercede for your son and we will do our best by God’s grace. ‘Giving advises when we are not concerned is so easy, murmured the father’
The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, thank goodness your son is saved and without waiting for the father’s reply, he carried on his way running, ‘if you have any question, ask the nurse’. Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so I can ask about my son’s stability, commented the father after the doctor left. The nurse answered with tears running down her face, his son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery and now that he saved your son’s life he left running to finish his son’s burial’.
The lessons this week is never judge anyone or make your conclusions before you understand who they are and what they stand for. You may never understand the rhythm of their lives, what they are going through or where they are coming from except you are in their shoes
