One of my personal experience back in my childhood.
It was almost evening in the day. One labor was digging a hole for our bathroom all by himself from dawn to dusk. My father told him to stop the work and go home as it was already dark. He looked at us with beads of sweat dripped from his face despite the cold weather. He wiped his face and said, “I will finish the work today itself, I cannot come tomorrow.” He got back to his work and kept digging for another one hour. After an hour the work was done and my dad gave him Rs. 500 for the work. Before he could say anything my dad asked, “why you are straining too much today”.
He said, “If there is a case of tomorrow, I would not have got the money today and without completing the work I won’t accept the wage.“
Despite being exhausted, he had triumphant sparkle on his face which made me curious. He smiled under his breath and started to go which further increased my curiosity. I asked him why he was so happy today. Upon my insistence, he said, “Tomorrow is my baby’s birthday and I need to buy a new dress for her. I had no money until today, by grace of God I now have the money I needed.”
That’s when I realized a man is not just a husband to his wife or father to his kids, he is the God for his family’s happiness.
Moral: First, it doesn’t matter who you are or what your capability is, just keep the focus on your work and the outcome is precious. Second have faith in the almighty God. Third you never know what an individual can sacrifice for you unless you see them yourself.
