There were two patients in a small hospital room. They
were Tom and Bob. The room has only one window, and it
happened that Tom’s bed was by the window. Everyday,
Tom would relate to Bob about the beauty of the outside
world he saw through the window. He told Bob about the
trees with green leafs, the flowers blooming, the
weather, the children playing outside, and cars passing
by. This kept Bob entertained since he was unable to
see it for himself. However, as time went by, Bob
became envious of Tom. He thought to himself, how nice
it would be if he could see everything for himself. One
night, Tom was very sick, and he asked Bob to call for
help. Bob could have shouted for assistance, but he did
not do so. He secretly wished that Tom would die, so
that he could occupy the bed by the window. Tom did
die, and Bob was moved to the bed beside the window.
Bob was excited now that he had the opportunity to see
the outside world with his own eyes. However, to his
utter shock, the only view he got was a brick wall. He
realized that he had lost a true friend in Tom, but it
was too late now!


In life there are people who care and love us. Our
parents, wives, children, friends and others do care
about us. In most cases we tend to take things for
granted until we suddenly realize that they are no
longer with us. Take care of them and treat them with
respect and you will have all the joy in the world.


"Remember not only to say the right thing in the right
place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid
the wrong thing at the tempting moment."

It is true.
Sometimes we neglect few people around us but in fact, that few people are always there when we need.

On the other hand, it could be that people that we consider friends are not there when we really need them.

Now I admit the quote: True friend is the one who is always around us especially in difficult times.

Even we are close to someone, don't neglect the other because one of them is perhaps the 'Tom'.

Tak semestinya kawan yg 24jam bersama kita itulah yg terbaik utk kita.. and vice versa.

Dan tak mudah untuk kita yang sedang gembira utk sama2 menanggung kesedihan dgn kawan..
