You Don’t Know MY Story (Dear Senseless Anonymous)

I don’t really like forwards.  I consider myself to be somewhat intelligent and yet I find my mind worrying tirelessly about the young girl who is going to haunt my house if I don’t forward the e-mail to 1 million friends in 1 minute.  **Shudders** Anyway, I saw this post on Facebook and thought I’d share it with you.  I know I should ignore it but a comment someone left a few months ago has really hurt me.  He or she posted thoughtlessly without knowing where I have been or what has happened in my life to cause me to look the way I do and every day I worry obsessively about what I should write, how I should write it, and even how I should dress (I don’t even know if this person can see me) because of this senseless anonymous person.  Silly, I know.  Well, when I saw this, it made me think about that person.  Here’s to you, Senseless Anonymous!

“A doctor entered the hospital in a hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call ASAP, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block.
He found the boy’s father pacing the hallway for the doctor. Once seeing him, the dad yelled, “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have the sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said, “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital and I came the fastest I could after receiving the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do??” said the father angrily.

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Bible, ‘From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God.’ Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace.”

“Giving advice when we’re not concerned is so easy.” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happilyy, “Thank God! Your son is saved!” and without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait a few minutes so that I ask about my son’s state” commented the father to the nurse.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a car accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he’s left to finish his son’s burial.”

NEVER JUDGE ANYONE because you never know how their life is, what is happening or what they’re going through.”
