Oh Wow....... Did you know that "Life Isn't Fair?"
I can't tell you how many times I have heard this said. What do you think? Is life fair?
What is it that we all want in life? Usually, it's the very things that we don't have! I'm thinking here.....is it because we can't have it that causes us to think life isn't fair, or is it because one of our friends has it and we don't, that makes life unfair?
I recently saw a video clip and it's possible that you all have seen it as well. A little boy (I'll call him Tommy) was all down and out, because life isn't fair!! (I couldn't find it, or I would have posted it for all to see)
The video is filmed in a city park and (Tommy) is a little boy who is very poor looking. His tennis shoes are all torn up and his pants and shirt are ripped in several places.
Just seeing his face made my heart heavy. Why? Because, when I was working in the library at our local school, I saw kids that were dressed very much in the say way!! This isn't the only reason.....I actually know kids who are ridiculed often because their parents cannot afford to buy them, name brand shoes or name brand clothes. :(
As (Tommy) walks through the park, he comes upon another boy (Let's call him Bobby) sitting on a park bench. Tommy sits down on one end of the bench while the nice dressed (Bobby) sits on the other end. Tommy looks down at his old, torn up shoes and then he looks at Bobby's shoes. (name brand shoes) Tommy stares at the shoes and in the video, you can tell that he is so sad.
Tommy gets up and goes over to a nearby tree and sits down. He takes off his shoes and begins to play like the shoes are puppets. He is repeats over and over.....how he wants to be like the Bobby. Suddenly, he is. He and the Bobby, exchange lives.
Both are SO HAPPY. Now, Bobby is over by the tree.....Dancing and running around in complete happiness.
Tommy is sitting on the bench and he looks down and sees that he no longer is wearing the old torn up shoes...He has on the nice designer shoes. Tommy is Thrilled beyond belief!! He can't believe what he is seeing....
Things change when an older woman pushes a wheelchair up beside the bench and tells Tommy, it's time to go!!!!!
You see.....Bobby was thrilled to finally be able to walk and run, while the Tommy was so excited to have new shoes.
Tommy's eyes were so focused on his own needs, therefore, he did not realize the Bobby had needs too.
Needs are all around us, aren't they?
Life is not fair.......
I am Blessed!!!
