“I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognize you and thank you once again”
In an interview, the Radio Jockey asked his guest, a millionaire, “What made you most happy in life?”
The millionaire said:
I have gone through four stages of happiness in life and finally I understood the true happiness.
The first stage was to accumulate wealth and means. But at this stage I did not get the happiness
Then the second stage of collecting valuable items. But I realized that the effect of this is also temporary and the lustre of valuable things don’t last long.
Then came the third stage of getting big projects. Like buying a football team, buying a tourist resort, etc. But even here I did not get the happiness, which I had imagined.
The fourth time a friend of mine asked me to buy wheelchairs for disabled. I immediately bought them… But my friend insisted that I accompany him and hand over the wheelchairs to the disabled children. I got ready…
I gave these chairs to the needy children with my own hands. I saw the strange glow of happiness on the faces. I saw them all sitting on chairs, moving around and having fun… It was as if they had arrived at a picnic spot.
One of the kids grabbed my legs while I was leaving the place. I gently tried to free my legs but the child stared at my face…
I bent down and asked the child: Do you need anything else?
The answer of the child not only made me happy but also changed my life completely. The child said “I want to remember your face so that when I meet you in heaven, I will be able to recognize you and thank you once again”
