I understand MIA series is on but I couldn’t ignore this. Something amazing happened this morning and I felt the need to share it with you all. I hope you all are following the series, if you are not, kindly visit the home page to catch up on all you’ve missed.
So, I boarded a bus this morning and I noticed a very little boy sitting all by himself. He looked so tiny and fragile and I couldn’t help but wonder why his mum would leave him to go to school alone not considering his safety. While I was still watching, an old woman raised the same point and it felt like she had read my mind. Amidst all these, what baffled me was his degree of smartness. He looked so small but his IQ wasn’t minor. The woman posed a question: have you paid your transport fare? Without delay, he answered: yes ma.
I just sat behind and observed the whole show. Let me state the fact that he greeted everyone that entered the bus this morning. It was so difficult to believe that despite the moral decadence, a little boy in this era still had the decency to honour his superiors. Another woman in front beckoned to him and asked for the amount he paid and before we knew what was happening, she returned his t-fare to him. Like that wasn’t enough, another woman that sat right beside him gave him a huge sum of money just to appreciate the boy for his comportment. To cap it all, he kept saying thank you ma. Like play, like play, this boy became the celebrity of the moment and everyone couldn’t stop talking about him after he alighted.
What’s the essence of the whole story? There are lessons to learn and I’d share briefly. There are still nice people willing to reward extraordinary qualities and you have no right to look down on people as anyone can be a blessing to you. I mentioned earlier that another woman gave this boy a huge sum of money. You won’t even speculate she had anything because she didn’t appear like it, you’d think she was on her way to Mile 12 market. What stunned me was her accent, she sounded so fluent and eloquent and we could tell she travels a lot, if not a citizen. She probably came to Nigeria and was going to the market to shop for stuff she’d take with her on her way back.
A lot of us have missed our blessings because of our failure to coordinate ourselves in public. People you least expect are those God will use to reach out to you, so, don’t miss it. If this young boy could get his part of the cake, nobody has an excuse. Imagine how far you’d have gone if you cultivated the habit of being gracious.
Miracles like this still happens and I’m sure this will not be the last. I can’t explain how much I have been inspired by the young boy, this happened in a public bus, yours can happen anywhere. Dangote’s kind gesture earned him a supernatural blessing, although he was destined to be great, the blessing created a reawakening in him that made him aware of who he was; look at him today…
Stop complaining about your situation when you are the source of your problem. Of a truth, everyone might not be this lucky but must you be part of the unlucky group? If we all had this psyche, I’m positive the world will be a better place to dwell. Just imagine how that boy would feel throughout today. Help your benefactor to help you, be aware of things that happen around you, treat everyone with admiration, be appreciative and have positive vibes.
I wish you all a great day.
