Sunflower Morning




An early morning by the sunflower field. I was sitting on a log in quiet conversation with my fiancé. I had his jacket over my shoulders, the air was a little chilly. We watched the sunrise. We should have been in bed a long time ago.

An old farmer with bare feet was working in the field. He was weeding his plants. After a while my friend shouted to him: "Hey grandfather, I can take my shoes off and help you with your work?" The old man shook his head friendly. It was not neccesary. But he could really use a cigarette?

He got his cigarette and two pounds to buy a packet. They always said to me : don't give anyone the finger they will steal the whole hand". But the young man who had so little, gave what he had to someone who had nothing. That morning he taught me how to share..

wow...that's nice..

Sometimes we get so caught up in what we want that we never think about sharing what we've got.. I always think of these lines :

"Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."

In this rat race we dont have time to even think about others. It's sad, but it has become our way of life. But the more you share, the more joy there will be...
