Hello my dear friends,

I felt like sharing a happy little anecdote to lift your spirits and make you smile and feel good.

A teacher brought balloons to school and asked the children to blow them all up and then each write their names on their balloon.

They tossed all the balloons into the hall while the teacher mixed them from one end to the other. The teacher then gave them 5 minutes to find the balloon with their name on it. The children ran around, looking frantically but as the time ran out – nobody had found their own balloon.

Then the teacher told them to take the balloon closest to them and give it to the person whose name was on it. In less than 2 minutes everyone had their own balloon.

Finally the teacher said, “Balloons are like happiness. No one will find it looking for theirs only. Instead, if everyone cares about each other, they will find theirs as quickly as possible.”

Bye for now and wishing you the best of health and happiness.  Let’s remember “Caring for each other” is the mantra to believe in.

Cheers 🙂
