A 75 year old was being released from the hospital after undergoing treatment for Covid. On being presented an additional bill for Rs. 6,000 for an Oxygen cylinder that had been omitted, he burst into tears. His family rallied around him and said, costs don’t matter…
Here’s what he said next..
“I’m not crying because I have to pay the extra money, I’m crying because of the debt I have to pay to nature for the 75 years of free Oxygen that I have used.”
We take for granted, so much that is given to us. Its life changing moments like this that bring a realization of how much we “have”.
The emotion of Gratitude doesn’t change the situation we are in but it certainly changes the way we look at the situation.
