Entry: IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS Thursday, October 16, 2003



 

 

 I felt this story below is pretty interesting to sahre it with all of you :) Read on..

 

An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to

spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work.

His only son, who would have helped him, was in

prison.

 

The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned

his situation:

  Dear Son, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks

like I won't be able to plant my potato garden this

year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because your

mother always loved planting time. I'm just getting

too old to be digging up a garden plot. If you were

here, all my troubles would be over. I know you

would dig the plot for me, if you weren't in prison.

Love, Dad

 

Shortly, the old man received this telegram:

 

 "For Heaven's sake, Dad, don't dig up the garden!!

 That's where I buried the GUNS!!"

 

At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and

local police officers showed up and dug up the entire

 garden without finding any guns. Confused, the

old man wrote another note to his son telling him what

 happened, and asked him what to do next. His son's

reply was: "Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad.

 It's the best I could do for you from here.

 

Moral of the Story:

 

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE

DECIDED TO DO SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART YOU CAN

DO IT. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT MATTERS NOT WHERE YOU

ARE OR WHERE THE PERSON IS.
