A Touching Story From My Email Archives.

I was going over my email archives recently, looking for an email that I know was sent to me a couple of months ago, when I realized how amazing my email inbox has become. It has become an online journal. I felt nostalgia just browsing at email messages that was sent by friends and colleagues a long time ago (well, not that long). I have not seen some of these friends for years. Really, reading old emails brings back memories. I still have email messages that were sent by my colleagues when I was still on another company and I still have an email from the Human Resources of that company acknowledging my resignation. I can also see on my Sent items, the messages that I wrote to friends and family members.

I found a couple of good stuffs as well. You know, the usual funny and inspiring messages that we often received from various sources. Some of these I found entertaining and poignant that I even forwarded the messages to friends or were shared on my blogs. Some, I can not even recall reading and were easily buried to oblivion.

I came across some messages that are worth sharing like this old item:

While a man was polishing his new car one weekend, his five-year-old son picked up a stone and scratched some lines on the side of the vehicle.
In anger, the man grabbed the child’s hand and hit it many times, not realizing he was using a wrench. At the hospital, the child lost all the fingers of his right hand due to multiple fractures.

When the child saw his father, with painful eyes he asked, “Dad when will my fingers grow back?” Hurt and speechless; the man went back to his car and kicked it several times.

Sitting dejected beside his car, he saw up close what his son had scrawled: “LOVE YOU DAD.”
