A Motivational Story: The Pregnant Dog and Elephant

One of the stories circling around the Internet that I can relate to is the story between a pregnant dog and a pregnant elephant. I have wanted something so badly, but it is not yet given to me. I hope in the right time, it will come.

Here is the story:

“An elephant and a dog became pregnant at the same time. Three months down the line, the dog gave birth to six puppies. Six months later the dog was pregnant again, and nine months on it gave birth to another dozen puppies. The pattern continued.

On the 18th month the dog approached the elephant questioning: “Are you sure that you are pregnant? We became pregnant on the same date. I have given birth three times to a dozen puppies and they are now grown to become big dogs, yet you are still pregnant. What’s going on? The elephant replied: “There is something I want you to understand. What I am carrying is not a puppy but an elephant. I only give birth to one in two years. When my baby hits the ground, the earth feels it. When my baby crosses the road, human beings stop and watch in admiration. What I carry draws attention. So what I’m carrying is mighty and great.”

Don’t lose faith when you see others receive answers to their prayers. Don’t be envious of others’ testimony. If you haven’t received your own blessings, don’t despair. Say to yourself, “My time is coming, and when it hits the surface of the earth, people shall yield in admiration.

Stay encouraged.”

A Long Distance Relationship That Didn’t Last

broken heart

A young couple declared their love for each other on social media, mostly on Facebook because the other one uses free data.

Their respective families, friends, relatives, classmates, schoolmates, colleagues at work, neighbors, acquaintances, and others were witnesses to their immense love for each other.

The girl would post about how she misses him. How she wished he’s there hugging and kissing her, instead of talking to each other on Skype or Messenger. The guy would then post about how he loves her so much and if only she’s with him in a desert country but promises financial stabilization and wonderful future.

The Stolen Years – a Love-and-Tragedy Story

the-stolen-years

It is the English title of a Chinese movie. The first few scenes were about a couple (named Yu and Mann) who likes to film themselves while traveling, eating, driving, etc. They were so sweet and so full of love for each other. They just got married.

One time she asked him to kiss her while they were on a motorcycle driving somewhere. She was filming their trip and was insistent so he turned his head to kiss her but then they met an accident.

The next scene was in a hospital. She woke up. And the first thing she looked for was her husband. Her sister was surprised because they were divorced so she told her about it. She was surprised as she thought she just woke up from the motorcycle accident, which happened during their honeymoon. But, she woke up from another accident (a car one which would be revealed later on in the movie) which she couldn’t recall.

An Unusual Love Story

love

Hello, readers. Since it is Holy Week, I will tell you a story. It is not my story. It is a story of a netizen, who does not want to divulge his identity. After reading his story, you will understand why. 😉

He shared his story on a Facebook page that’s being shared by one of my Facebook friends. It was written in Cebuano as he comes from the Philippines, in the Visayas area.

Here comes his incredible story:

Due to poverty, our antagonist couldn’t go to college, finish a degree, and work in a prestigious firm where he needs to wear a business attire everyday. Instead, after high school, he got a job in a Funeral Homes as an embalmer. Embalming dead bodies is something he did on a daily basis for 3 years. Injecting formalin and beautifying the dead corpse were part of his job.

Sometimes when he and his colleagues felt hungry, they just ate in front of the dead bodies. It became normal for them. They didn’t feel the urge to throw up anymore.
