Prudence Wong’s Notes

Find out….What are the FIVE Words?
A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage.
They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes. When
the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a
medicine bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to
cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in
the kitchen totally forgot the matter.

The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by
its color and drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine
meant for adults in small dosages.

When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital. He
died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how she was going to
face her husband.

When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead
child, he looked at his wife and uttered just five words.


1. What were the five words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?

Scroll down to read….


The husband just said to his wife “I am with you Darling”.
The husband’s totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The
child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point
in finding fault with the mother.

Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would
not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. She had also lost her only child.
What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the
husband. That is what he gave her. If everyone can look at life with
this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the
world. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Take
off all your envies, jealousy, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears .
And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.

This story is really worth reading. Sometimes we spend time in asking
who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a
job or with the people we know. By this way we miss out some warmth in
human relationship.

Have a nice and blessed day

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

  1. Hi…

    I actually read it somewhere, couldn’t remember where..but what I could remember is the husband not blaming the wife but supporting her. I also got that, a lot of time, I blame people and also the situation for not happening in my way without being cause in the matter.

    Thanks Wynne for posting that note. My objective is to inspire people around me, especially this point of time.

    During my birthday, I create a group in facebook, Stand For the world economy by creating your own economy. Instead of blaming the world economy, why don’t we be cause in the matter by creating our own economy…

    I invite you to join this group,

    Once again, thank you Wynne for making a difference to the world and you for reading my comment.

    With love,

    Prudence (Prue)
