Sometimes, the simplest stories grab our attention because . . .
they carry important messages. Likewise in life, we sometimes overlook and take for granted the many wonderful things we have or that happen right under our noses. Our focus often gets caught up in our smaller failures, disappointments, or relatively insignificant events. If only we opened our eyes to widen our horizons . . . .
The author of the following story is unknown, but here are the two sources that I found:
1): For its Annual Dinner, a small town chamber of commerce invited a motivational speaker in. It seems their community’s economy was bad, their people discouraged, and they wanted someone/something to give them hope and their spirits a boost.
2): A Professor Prepared an examination for his class.
