Where Can I Find God?

A sweet story with such a meaningful reminder. We are surrounded by miracles, if only we open our eyes to see. This came from a blog I follow on Quora.-Renee

Lunch with God

Ruchit Doshi

There once was a little boy who  wanted to meet God. He knew it was a long
trip to where God lived, so he  packed his suitcase with cupcakes, several
cans of root beer and started on  his journey.

When he had gone about three blocks, he saw an elderly  woman. She was
sitting on a park bench watching the pigeons. The boy sat down  next to her
and opened his suitcase. He was about to take a drink from his  root beer
when he noticed the lady looked hungry so he offered her a cupcake.  She
gratefully accepted and smiled at him.

Her smile was so wonderful  that he wanted to see it again, so he offered a
root beer as well. Once again  she smiled at him. The boy was delighted!

They sat there all afternoon  eating and smiling without saying a word.

As it began to grow dark, the  boy realized how tired he was and wanted to
go home. He got up to leave but  before he had gone no more than a few
steps, he turned around and ran back to  the old woman, giving her a big
hug. She gave him her biggest smile  ever.

When the boy arrived home his Mother was surprised by the look of  joy on
his face. She asked, “What has made you so happy today?” He replied,  “I
had lunch with God.” Before his mother could respond he added, “You  know
what? She’s got the most beautiful smile in the whole  world!”

Meanwhile, the old woman, also radiant with joy, returned to her  home. Her
son was stunned by the look of peace on her face. He asked,  “Mother, what
has made you so happy today?” She replied, “I ate cupcakes in  the park
with God.” And before her son could reply, she added, “You know, he  is
much younger than I expected.”

Too often we underestimate the power  of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a
listening ear, an honest compliment, or  the smallest act of caring; all of
which have the potential to turn a life  around.

People come into our lives for a reason, a season, or a  lifetime.

Take no one for granted and embrace all equally with  joy!

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
