It’s a story of a Man walking around shopping store. There he saw a cashier talking to a boy who would be 5 or 6 years old. Cashier was saying to boy, “I am sorry kid but your don’t have enough money to buy this doll you want.” After listening to cashier the boy turned toward man and asked, “Uncle, can you tell me if I don’t have enough money.”
Man counted his cash and replied to boy, “I am sorry dear but cashier is right you don’t have enough money to buy doll.” Still the boy was holding the doll. Finally Man asked boy, “Who you wishes to give this doll to?”
Boy replied, “It’s for my little sister. I want to gift her this on her birthday. I have to give this doll to my mommy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there. My sister has gone to God and my daddy said mommy is going to God very soon too, So i thought she could take this doll with her and give it to my sister.”
Man’s heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up and said, “I told mommy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from market.”Then the little boy showed a very nice picture of his where he was happy and laughing.
Boy said, “I want my mommy to take this picture with her so that my sister won”t forget me, I love my mommy and i don’t want her to leave me but daddy said that she have to leave as she has to be with my sister to take care of her.”
As the little boy again looked at the doll with his quiet eyes, Man reached for his wallet and said to boy, “Let me check again just in case you have enough money for doll.” Boy nodded in yes.
Man added some money without boy noticing him doing that and now man started counting money again in front of boy and with a smile he told him that, “There is enough money for doll and some spare money.”
“Thank you, God you gave me enough money”, said little boy. Then he looked at man and added, “Uncle, last night before going to sleep I asked God to make sure that i have enough money to buy this doll. He heard me and now i have got enough money to buy the doll and a white rose for my mommy. She loves white roses.”
Man couldn’t get this little incident from his mind. After sometime he remembered a local newspaper article from 2 days ago. There was an article about “A drunk man in truck who hit a car occupied by a young girl and her mother. Little girl died on spot and mother was in critical condition.” This made man think that if it was that little boy family.
Two days after this incident man read about the funeral of that lady from accident. Man couldn’t stop himself from going to funeral so he bought a bunch of white roses and went to funeral. At the funeral the coffin was opened for people to make last wishes before her burial. “She was there, in coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with photo of little boy and doll placed over her chest.”
Man left place with tear in his eyes, thinking of love that little boy had for his mother and sister and how in a friction of second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.
