A man was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing:
-Last year, I had a surgery and my gall bladder was removed. I was stuck to the bed due to this surgery for a long time.
-I turned 60 and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this company.
-My father died.
-My son failed in his exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital for many days. The car was totally destroyed. Alas! It was such bad year!
When the man's wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad. She read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it at the side of her husband's writing.
When the writer saw this paper, he found this written on it:
-Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder due to which I had spent years in pain. -I turned 60 with good health and retired from my job. Now I can use my time to write something better and of my interest.
-My father, at the age of 95, died peacefully in his sleep without any long illness.
-My son was blessed with a new life.
My car was destroyed but my son did not get any major injury. This year was an immense blessing and it passed well! Let us remember that there is always something to be thankful for.
