    Hi ladies
    I came by this article and thought i should share with u all:-D
    regards
    Pravina

    I hired a plumber to help me restore an old farmhouse, and after he had
    just finished a rough first day on the job: a flat tyre made him lose an
    hour of work, his electric drill quit and his ancient one ton truck
    refused to start.
    While I drove him home, he sat in stony silence. On arriving, he invited
    me in to meet his family. As we walked toward the front door, he paused
    briefly at a small tree, touching the tips of the branches with both
    hands.When opening the door he underwent an amazing transformation. His
    face was wreathed in smiles and he hugged his two small children and
    gave his wife a kiss.

    Afterward he walked me to the car. We passed the tree and my curiosity
    got the better of me. I asked him about what I had seen him do earlier.
    "Oh, that's my trouble tree," he replied "I know I can't help having
    troubles on the job, but one thing's for sure, those troubles don't
    belong in the house with my wife and the children. So I just hang them
    up on the tree every night when I come home and ask God to take care of
    them. Then in the morning I pick them up again." "Funny thing is," he
    smiled," when I come out in the morning to pick 'em up, there aren't
    nearly as many as I remember hanging up the night before."

    THIS ONE IS WORTH SENDING ON.
