A lovely little boy was holding two apples, one in each hand. His mother came in and softly asked with a smile, “my sweetie, could you give your mom one of your two apples?” The boy looked up at his mom for some seconds, then he suddenly took a quick bite out of one apple, and then quickly took a bite out of the other. The mom tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little boy handed one of his bitten apples to his mom, saying “mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.”
No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgable you think you are — always delay judgement. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality.
Have a sweet New Year!
