A Successful Relationship

A boy was born to a couple after 11 years of marriage. They
.were a loving couple and the boy was the apple of their eye

When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband
saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for work so he asked
his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His
wife, preoccupied in the kitchen, totally forgot the matter. The
boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle and
.fascinated by its color, drank it all

It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small
dosages. When the child collapsed, the mother hurried him to
.the hospital, where he died

The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her
husband. When the distraught father came to the hospital and
saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just four


? What were the four words
? What is the implication of this story


.The husband just said, I Love You Darling

.The husband's totally unexpected reaction is proactive behavior
.The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life
There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if
only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not
.have happened

No one is to be blamed. She had lost her only child. What she
needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the
.husband. That is what he gave her

If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective
.there would be much fewer problems in the world

Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiving attitude
selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually
.not as difficult as you think

A successful relationship requires falling in love many times
.with the same person

A husband and wife happy with each other are better for
.their children than a hundred books on child welfare
