ARMY WIFE – The Hardest Job In The Army

il_fullxfull.263512771

I wear no uniforms, no blues or Olive greens
But I am in the Army in the ranks rarely seen

I have no rank upon my shoulders – salutes I do not give
But the military world is the place where I live

I’m not in the chain of command, orders I do not get
But my husband is the one who does, this I can not forget

I’m not the one who fires the weapon, who puts my life on the line
But my job is just as tough. I’m the one that’s left behind

My husband is a patriot, a brave and prideful man
And the call to serve his country not all can understand

Behind the lines I see the things needed to keep this country free
My husband makes the sacrifice, but so do our kids and me

I love the man I married, Soldiering is his life
But I stand among the silent ranks known as the “Army Wife”

“The Black” Undeserved To Live – Loving Couple Life After Marriage, What Happened?

1892665-IPEYESHC-7

The Black – Inside You

The True Story behind every Life…..

A very loving couple have been married for over 10 years without any child and it was becoming their 11th year.

Steve and Sarah stayed with each other and greatly hoped that they will have a child before their 11th year of marriage runs out because they were under persuasion from friends and family members to get a divorce, but they couldn’t let go because of the strong bond of love between them.

Months passed and one day, while Dave was returning from work, he saw his wife walking down the road with a man.

The man had his arms around her neck and they looked very happy. For over a week, he saw the same man with his wife at various places and one evening, while Dave was returning from work he saw the man drop her off at the house after giving her a kiss on the cheek. Dave was angry and sad.

Two days later, after a hectic day at work, Dave was taking water with a glass jug from the dispenser when the phone rang.

He picked it up and the person said,”Hello dear, I’ll be coming to your house this evening to see you as promised. I hope…..”.

Dave hung-up the phone. It was a male voice and he was sure the person was the man he had always seen her with. He suddenly became shaky with the thought that he has lost his wife to another man. The glass jug fell from his hand and shattered into pieces.

His wife came running into the room asking,”Is everything okay?”. In anger he gave his wife a push and she fell. She wasn’t moving or  getting up. Dave then realized that she fell where he broke the glass jug.

A large piece of glass had pierced her. He felt her breath, pulse and heartbeat but there she lay lifeless. His wife was dead! In total confusion, he saw an envelope in her hand.

He took it, opened it and was shocked by its content -it was a letter. It reads:
“My loving husband, words cannot express how I feel so,

I had to write it down. I have been going to see a doctor for over a week and I wanted to be sure before I give you the news.

The doctor confirmed it that I am pregnant with a twin and our baby is due 2 months from now. The same doctor is my long lost brother whom I lost contact with after our marriage. He has promised to take care of me and our baby and give us the best without collecting a money.

He also promised to have dinner with us today. I am putting this on your favorite chair in the sitting room for you to remember the day you proposed to me and I had to write to you saying,

“Yes” because I was so happy. Thanks for staying by my side”. -Your loving wife .

The letter fell from his hand. There was a knock at the door and the same man he had seen with his wife came in and said,

”Hello Dave, I suppose I’m right. Its Max the brother of your wife and……”. Suddenly, Max noticed his sister lying in a pool of her blood.
He rushed her to the hospital and she was confirmed dead. Her twin baby gone.

Message OF THE STORY:

We should not be too quick to take unnecessary actions in our relationship or marriage. When we haven’t questioned our partner or spouse on what we saw heard about them.

Each of us have our faults. We shouldn’t be too fast to decide the judgement of others.

Have you thought of that thing you are doing wrong that no one sees?

Not everything you see, hear or believe about someone is true.

Moral OF THE STORY:

Always learn to control yourself under any condition or situation, irrespective of what you’ve heard or seen You never can tell… Can you?

The Cockroach Theory – Sundar Pichai CEO at Google Inc.

https://differentwaystosuccess.files.wordpress.com/2016/04/sundar-pichai.jpg?w=498&h=498

Sundar Pichai, Chief Executive Officer of Google Inc

I read this beautiful speech by Sundar Pichai who is a CEO at Google and thought of sharing with you the same.

At a restaurant, a cockroach suddenly flew from somewhere and sat on a lady. She started screaming out of fear. With a panic stricken face and trembling voice, she started jumping, with both her hands desperately trying to get rid of the cockroach.

Her reaction was contagious, as everyone in her group also got panicky.

The lady finally managed to push the cockroach away but …it landed on another lady in the group.

Now, it was the turn of the other lady in the group to continue the drama.

The waiter rushed forward to their rescue. In the relay of throwing, the cockroach next fell upon the waiter.

The waiter stood firm, composed himself and observed the behavior of the cockroach on his shirt.
When he was confident enough, he grabbed it with his fingers and threw it out of the restaurant.

Sipping my coffee and watching the amusement, the antenna of my mind picked up a few thoughts and started wondering, was the cockroach responsible for their histrionic behavior? If so, then why was the waiter not disturbed? He handled it near to perfection, without any chaos.

It is not the cockroach, but the inability of the ladies to handle the disturbance caused by the cockroach that disturbed the ladies.

I realized that, it is not the shouting of my father or my boss or my wife that disturbs me, but it’s my inability to handle the disturbances caused by their shouting that disturbs me.

It’s not the traffic jams on the road that disturbs me, but my inability to handle the disturbance caused by the traffic jam that disturbs me.

More than the problem, it’s my reaction to the problem that creates chaos in my life.

Lessons learnt from the story:

I understood, I should not react in life. I should always respond. The women reacted, whereas the waiter responded.

Reactions are always instinctive whereas responses are always well thought of, just and right to save a situation from going out of hands, to avoid cracks in relationship, to avoid taking decisions in anger, anxiety, stress or hurry.

Don’t Stress YourSelf Out Wth Things You Can’t Control or Change

https://differentwaystosuccess.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/glass-down1.jpg?w=258&h=381

Read this small story; Hope that makes a BIG change in YOU

The Professor began his class by holding up a glass with some water in it. He held it up for all to see & asked the students “How much do you think this glass weighs?”

.

’50gms!’….. ’100gms!’ …..’125 gms’ …the students answered.

.

“I really don’t know unless I weigh it,” said the professor, “but, my question is:

What would happen if I held it up like this for a few minutes?”…. .
‘Nothing’ …..the students said.

.
‘Ok what would happen if I held it up like this for an hour?’ the professor asked.
‘Your arm would begin to ache’ said one of the student

.
“You’re right, now what would happen if I held it for a day?”
“Your arm could go numb; you might have severe muscle stress & paralysis & have to go to hospital for sure!”
….. Ventured another student & all the students laughed
.
“Very good.
But during all this, did the weight of the glass change?” Asked the professor.
‘No’…. Was the answer.
“Then what caused the arm ache & the muscle stress?”
.
The students were puzzled.
“What should I do now to come out of pain?” asked professor again.
“Put the glass down!” said one of the students
.
“Exactly!” said the professor.
Life’s problems are something like this.
.
Hold it for a few minutes in your head & they seem OK.
Think of them for a long time & they begin to ache.
.
Hold it even longer & they begin to paralyze you. You will not be able to do anything.
.
It’s important to think of the challenges or problems in your life, But EVEN MORE IMPORTANT is to ‘PUT THEM DOWN’ at the end of every day before you go to sleep…

.
That way, you are not stressed, you wake up every day fresh &strong & can handle any issue, any challenge that comes your way!

.

Moral
So, when you start your day today, Remember friend to ‘PUT THE GLASS DOWN TODAY!

We Shout In Anger, Why? – You Will Not Find The Path To Return.

https://differentwaystosuccess.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/c4ca4238a0b923820dcc509a6f75849b_1410181373.jpg?w=662

A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled ‘n asked. ‘Why do people shout in anger shout at each other?’

Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout.’ ‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’ asked the saint.

Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.

Finally the saint explained, . ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other.

The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is either nonexistent or very small…’ The saint continued, ‘When they love each other even more, what happens? They do not speak, only whisper ‘n they get even closer to each other in their love.

Finally they even need not whisper, they only look at each other ‘n that’s all. That is how close two people are when they love each other.’

He looked at his disciples ‘n said. ‘So when you argue do not let your hearts get distant, Do not say words that distance each other more, Or else there will come a day when the distance is so great that you will not find the path to return.’
