    Good stories(must read..helps in daily life)

    Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge.
    The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter,
    'Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river.'
    The little girl said, 'No, Dad. You hold my hand.'
    'What's the difference?' Asked the puzzled father.
    'There's a big difference,' replied the little girl.

    'If I hold your hand and something happens to me,
    chances are that I may let your hand go.
    But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens,
    you will never let my hand go.'

    In any relationship, the essence of trust is not in its bind, but in its bond.

    So hold the hand of the person who loves you rather than expecting them to hold yours...This message is too short......but carries a lot of Feelings.

    A small touching story mainly for professionals... { i did post this already }

    A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his
    5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

    SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
    DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?" replied the man.

    SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
    DAD: "That`s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?"

    the man said angrily.

    SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an
    hour?"
    DAD: "If you must know, I make Rs.100 an hour."

    SON: "Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down.
    SON: "Daddy, may I please borrow Rs.50?"

    The father was furious, "If the only reason you asked that is so you
    can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then
    you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about
    why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this
    childish behavior."

    The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
    The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little
    boy`s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some
    money?

    After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to
    think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that
    Rs.50 and he really didn`t ask for money very often. The man went to
    the door of the little boy`s room and opened the door.

    "Are you asleep, son?" He asked.

    "No daddy, I`m awake," replied the boy.
    "I`ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier" said the
    man.

    "It`s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.. Here`s the
    rs.50 you asked for."

    The little boy sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you daddy!" He
    yelled.

    Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.
    The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry
    again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up
    at his father.

    "Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the father
    grumbled.

    "Because I didn`t have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.

    "Daddy, I have Rs.100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?

    Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with
    you."

    The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he
    begged for his forgiveness.

    It`s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We
    should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some
    time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.

    Do remember to share that Rs.100 worth of your time with someone you love.
    If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily
    replace us in a matter of days.

    But the family , love & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the
    rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
    into work than to our family.

    The second one is touching, thanks for sharing it.

    Both of them have a very strong meaning.

    The second one however is totally true especially for most executives of the U.S. Unfortunately, some of our jobs require us to be so involved and they don't take into account that we may have families. It's sad, really it is. But it is how our society has learned to get as much as they paid for.

    It is indeed very true for many IT professionals.
