Patience brings its own reward !

My mother used to enlighten me with ethical stories at bed time. Those character building stories have left great impact on me.
Let me share one of those stories with you today :)
Long time back, famine broke out in a country. A rich charitable man distributed loaves of bread to children every day in his region. Every day the children gathered at the rich man’s house to get loaves of bread.
As soon as the servants brought out loaves, they fought among themselves and struggled hard to get them.
But one little orphan girl waited patiently for her turn. But every time she got the smallest loaf last of all.
One day as usual, she got the smallest piece.
She went home and sat in a corner to eat it. As she cut it, her eyes gleamed with joy. She saw a gold coin in it. She went back at once to return it to the rich man.
The rich man was very delighted at her honesty. He gave her not only that coin, but two more gold coins for her honesty and some big loaves as reward of being patient and serene.
May we all learn and practice to be grateful for what we already have and be patient to wish and get our wishes realized, amen!
Patience brings its own reward.
