Long time ago there lived a priest who was
extremely lazy and poor at the same time. He did not want to do any hard work but dream
of being rich one day. He got his food by be
for alms. One morning he got a pot of milk as
alms. He was extremely delighted and went
home with the pot of milk. He boiled and

If I had my life to live over

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

I would have talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even
if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the “good”
living room and worried much less about the
dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the
I would have taken the time to listen to my
grandfather ramble about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be
rolled up on a summer day because my hair
had just been teased and sprayed. I would have
burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose
before it melted in storage.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children
and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while
watching TV – and more while watching life.
I would have shared more of the responsibility
carried by my husband.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick
instead of pretending the earth would go into a
holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just
because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil or
was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of
pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment
and realized that the wonderment growing
inside me was the only chance in life to assist
God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would
never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up
for dinner.”
There would have been more “I love yous”…
more “I’m sorrys”…
But mostly, given another shot at life, I would
seize every minute…look at it and really see it…
live it…and never give it back.

with cancer.

The Fat Lady

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

Hi! How are you?” The woman smiled as she
took the seat beside me. She had to lower
herself slowly, squeezing her ample bottom into
the seat, filling all available space.
Positioning herself comfortably, she plopped her
enormous arm on our common armrest. Her
immensity saturated the space around us,
shrinking me and my seat into insignificance.
I cringed and reclined towards the window.
She leaned towards me and repeated her
greeting in an upbeat, friendly voice. Her face
towered above my head, forcing me to turn to
look at her. “Hi,” I replied with obvious loathing.
I turned away to stare out the cabin window,
sulking silently about the long hours of
discomfort I was going to experience with this
monster beside me.
She nudged me with her meaty arm. “My name
is Laura. I’m from Britain. How about you?
“Malaysia,” I barked.
“I’m so sorry! Will you accept my heartfelt
apology? Come, shake my hand. If we’re going
to spend six hours side-by-side on this flight,
we’d better be friends, don’t you think?” A palm
waved in front of my face. I shook the hand
reluctantly, still silent.
Laura started a conversation with me, taking no
notice of my unfriendly reactions. She talked
excitedly about herself and her trip to Hong
Kong to see her friends. She rattled off a list of
things she was going to buy for her students in
the boarding school where she was teaching.
I gave her one-word answers to her questions
about me. Unperturbed by my coldness, she
nodded as she made appreciative comments to
my answers. Her voice was warm and caring.
She was considerate and obliging when we were
served drinks and meals, making sure that I had
room to manoeuvre in my seat. “I don’t want to
clobber you with my elephant size!” she said
with utmost sincerity.
To my surprise, her face which repulsed me
hours before, now opened into extraordinary
smiles, lively and calm at the same time. I
couldn’t help but let down my guard slowly.
Laura was an interesting conversationalist. She
was well read in many subjects from philosophy
to science. She turned a seemingly unimportant
subject into something to explore and
understand. Her comments were humorous and
inspirational. When our topic turned to cultures,
I was pleasantly surprised by her intelligent
comments and well-thought-out analysis.
During our conversation, Laura managed to
make every cabin crew who served us walk
away laughing at her jokes.
When a flight attendant was clearing our plates,
Laura cracked several jokes about her size. The
flight attendant roared with laughter as she
grabbed Laura’s hand, “You really make my
For the next few minutes, Laura listened
attentively and gave pointers to the flight
attendant’s weight problem. The grateful
attendant said before she rushed off, “I’ve got
to work. I’ll come back later and talk to you
about it.”
I asked Laura, “‘Have you ever thought about
losing some weight?”
“No. I’ve worked hard to get this way. Why
would I want to give it up?”
“You aren’t worried about cardiovascular
diseases that come with being overweight?”
“Not at all. You only get the diseases if you’re
worried about your weight all the time. You see
advertisements from slimming centres that say,
‘Liberate yourself from your extra baggage so
that you are free to be yourself.’ It’s rubbish!
You’re liberated only if you’re comfortable
about who you are, and what you look like any
time of the day and anytime of the year! Why
would I want to waste my time on slimming
regimes when I have so many other important
things to do and so many people to be friends
with? I eat healthily and walk regularly; I’m this
size because I am born to be big! There is more
to life than worrying about weight all day long.”
She sipped at her wine. “Besides, God gives me
so much happiness that I need a bigger body to
hold all of it! Why would I lose weight to lose
my happiness?” Taken aback by her reasoning, I
Laura continued. “Folks often see me as a fat
lady with big bosoms, big thighs and a big
bottom that no man would even bother to cast a
glance at. They see me as a slob. They think
I’m lazy and have no willpower. They’re
wrong.” She held up her glass to a passing
flight attendant. “More of this magnificent wine,
please.” She smiled sweetly at the attendant.
“Great service from your crew. May God bless
all of you.”
She turned to me, “I’m actually a slim person
inside. I’m so full of energy that people won’t
be able to keep up with me. This extra flesh is
here to slow me down, otherwise I’ll be running
everywhere chasing after men!”
“Do men chase after you?” I asked jokingly.
“Of course they do. I’m happily married but
men still keep proposing to me.
“Most of them have relationship problems and
they need someone to confide in. For some
reason, they like to talk to me. I think I should
have been a counsellor instead of a school
Laura paused before she said thoughtfully, “You
know, the relationship between men and women
is so complicated. Women worship men and
call them, ‘Honey’ until they find out they have
been lied to, and then they turn into bitter
gourds! Men love women so much that they
see them as their soul mates until they look at
their credit card bills, and then women become
devils with tridents!”
Laura’s enthralling conversation had turned the
flight into something thoroughly enjoyable. I
was also fascinated by the way people were
drawn to her. By the end of the flight, almost
half the cabin crew was standing near the aisle
by us, laughing and joking with Laura. The
passengers around us joined in the merry-
making too. Laura was the centre of attention,
filling the cabin with delightful warmth.
When we waved goodbye to each other at the
arrival lounge at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Airport, I
watched her walking towards a big group of
adoring adults and kids. Cheers sounded as the
group hugged and kissed Laura. She turned
around and winked at me.
I was stunned, as the realisation set in: Laura
was the most beautiful woman I had ever met in
my life.

Feel free to ask anything.

Let hear from you.
Once a poor boy fell in love with a rich man's
daughter. The Boy loved her a lot so one day he
proposed to her.
Girl rejected him by saying, “Listen, your monthly
salary is even less than my daily expenses. How
can i live with you? How could you even thought
of coming to me and ask me?? I can never ever
love you. Forget about me and go find someone of
your level to get engaged.”
Even after knowing the girl’s thought he still loved
her and after getting rejected boy left but couldn’t
forget her.

10 years later they stumbled into each other in a
shopping mall.
 The girl recognized him and said, “Hey!! You.. how
are you?? I am married now my husband  is very smart and
do you know how much my husband’s salary is?
It's $20,000 per month. Can you beat that?
The boy's eyes got wet hearing those words from same
person. A few seconds later her husband came
Before the girl could say a word seeing the guy her
husband said, “Sir, you are here! you have met
my wife.”
“This is my boss. I am one of those working for his
100 million Dollars project.” husband said looking at
his wife.
Husband continued, “He is very good person and
do you know my dear, My boss loved a girl but
he couldn’t win her heart that’s why he remained
unmarried. How lucky would that girl have been?, if
she married my boss now! 
Girl got totally shocked but couldn’t say a word
after that.


Life is too short so don’t be too arrogant and
proud of yourself and look down on others
current situations. Things change time change.
Don’t under estimate anyone because everyone
can have a great future.

Losing everything in Anger!

Is the title of today's Inspirational message.

Questions &Answers (Q&A) with lad Ralph Twitter edition is this Friday Sept, 10,2016. It's strictly Direct Message (DM).
The handle is @theladralph


A couple had been married for 10 years but they
didn’t had any child. They stayed with each other
and really hoped that they will have a child before
their 11th anniversary. Their family and friends
were pursuing them to get a divorce but they
didn’t wanted to get separated because of strong
love between them.
Months passed.
One day while husband was returning home from
work, he saw his wife walking down street with a
man. They were looking very happy. After a week
again husband saw his wife with same man
again. Husband saw them many times roaming
places with each other. Hugging each other.

One evening while husband was returning home,
He saw that man dropped her off with a good bye
kiss on her cheek. Husband got angry and sad.
After a hectic day at work, Husband was home.
While he was holding a glass jug to get water,
Phone rang. He received the call. As soon as he
picked the call voice came form other side saying,
“Hello dear, I will be coming to your home this
evening to see you as i promise, I hope..”
Husband hung up call before hearing any further.
Husband thought to himself, “It was male voice
and i am sure it’s same person i have seen with
my wife many times.” He thought he had lost his
wife to another man and thinking that glass jug
fell from his hand and shattered into pieces.
Listening to noise, his wife came running to him
and asked, “Is everything okay??”
In anger he pushed his wife. She fell and wasn’t
moving. Few seconds later husband realized that
she fell on the broken jug pieces and a large piece
has pierced her. Husband tried to feel her breath,
heartbeat but there wasn’t any.
His wife was dead. He saw an envelope in her
hand. He took it and read it. He was shocked by
what was written in it.
It reads :
“My loving husband, words can’t express how i
feel so… I had to write down this letter. I have
been seeing a doctor for over a week and i
wanted to be sure before giving you the big news.
Doctor have confirmed that i am pregnant. Our
baby is due 5 months from now. Doctor i have
been seeing is my long lost brother whom i
contacted after our marriage. He promised me to
take care of me and baby and will give us best
care without any fee.
He promised to have dinner with us tonight. I had
to write to you because i am so happy. Thanks
for staying by my side.
Your loving wife.”
Letter fell from his hands. At same time he heard
knock on the door it was same man he had seen
with his wife. He came in and said, “Hello, i am
John, your wife’s brother…….” Suddenly he notice
his sister lying in pool of her blood. He rushed
her to hospital where she was confirmed dead.


We should not be Quick to Judge Other person.
In Relationships we should Try to talk and clear
things. We should not let our Anger control us
because Not everything we see or hear is true.

A sage presented a prince with a set of three small
dolls. The prince was not amused.
“Am I a girl that you give me dolls?” – He asked.
“This is a gift for a future king,” Said the sage. “If
you look carefully, you’ll see a hole in the ear of
each doll.”
The sage handed him a piece of string. “Pass it
through each doll.” – He said.
Intrigued, the prince picked up the first doll and put
the string into the ear. It came out from the other
ear. “This is one type of person,” said the sage,
“whatever you tell him, comes out from the other
ear. He doesn’t retain anything.”
The prince put the string into the second doll. It
came out from the mouth. “This is the second type
of person,” said the sage, “whatever you tell him,
he tells everybody else.”
The prince picked up the third doll and repeated
the process. The string did not come out. “This is
the third type of person,” said the sage, “whatever
you tell him is locked up within him. It never
comes out.”
“What is the best type of person?” – Asked the
The sage handed him a fourth doll, in answer.
When the prince put the string into the doll, it
came out from the other ear.

“Do it again.” – Said the sage.
The prince repeated the process. This time the
string came out from the mouth. When he put the
string in a third time, it did not come out at all.
“This is the best type of person,” said the sage.

One day, a father of a very wealthy family took
his son on a trip to the country with the firm
purpose of showing his son how poor people
live. They spent a couple of days and nights on
the farm of what would be considered a very
poor family. On their return from their trip, the
father asked his son, “How was the trip?”
“It was great, Dad.”
“Did you see how poor people live?” the father
“Oh yeah,” said the son.
“So, tell me, what did you learn from the trip?”
asked the father.
The son answered, “I saw that we have one dog
and they had four. We have a pool that reaches
to the middle of our garden, and they have a
creek that has no end. We have imported
lanterns in our garden, and they have the stars
at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard, and
they have the whole horizon. We have a small
piece of land to live on, and they have fields
that go beyond our sight. We have servants
who serve us, but they serve others. We buy
our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls
around our property to protect us; they have
friends to protect them.”
The boy’s father was speechless.
Then his son added, “Thanks, Dad, for showing
me how poor we are.”
