Offering his guests hot chocolate, the professor went into the kitchen
and returned with a large pot of hot chocolate and an assortment of
cups. Some cups were porcelain, glass, crystal, some plain looking,
some expensive, some exquisite. He invited each to help themselves to
the hot chocolate.
"Notice that all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken, leaving
behind the plain and cheap ones."
"The cup that you are drinking from adds nothing to the quality of the
hot chocolate. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some
cases even hides what we drink."
"What each of you really wanted was hot chocolate. You did not want
the cup . . . but you consciously went for the best cups."
"And soon, you began to eye one another's cups."
"Now friends, please consider this . .
"Life is the hot chocolate . . your job, money and position in society
are the cups."
"They are just tools to hold and contain life."
"The cup you have does not define, nor does it change, the quality of
life you are living."
"Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup,we fail to enjoy the hot
chocolate God has provided us."
The happiest people don't have the best of everything.They just make
the best of everything that they have!!

Love generously . . .
Care deeply . . .
Speak kindly ...
