Once President Roosevelt’s house was broken into and lots of things were stolen.Hearing this, one of Roosevelt’s friends wrote to him and advised him not to take it to his heart so much. President Roosevelt wrote back immediately, saying,”Dear friend, thank you for your letter to comfort me. I’m all right now. I think I should thank God. This is because of the following three reasons: firstly, the thief only stole things from me but did not hurt me at all; secondly, the thief has stolen some of my things instead of all my things; thirdly, most luckily for me, it was the man rather than me who became a thief…”
It was quite unlucky for anyone to be stolen from.. However, President Roosevelt had such three reasons to be so grateful. This story tells us how we can learn to be grateful in our life.
A lion was sleeping in the field. Suddenly, something fell on the lion's body.
"who dares to wake me up from my sleep?"
The lion jumped up and looked around. However, there was only a small mouse trembling.
The lion held the mouse with his paw.
"you little mouse, you dare to wake me. I'll swallow you up."
The mouse trembled and said,"Mr.lion, please forgive me . I slipped......"
"If you spare me ,l'll repay you. The lion was surprised.
"ha, ha,ha,how will a little mouse like you repay me?"
"I meant it, I'll repay you."
"ha, ha, ha, what a funny fellow. Fine, I'll forgive you.But,don't talk about repaying me,or l'll eat you up."
The lion was so amazed at what the mouse said,he let the mouse go.
One day, a large cry was heard in the woods. The lion was caught in a hunter's net.
"oh, I'm going to die now. I can't believe I'm going to die like this. "
The mouse appeared in front of the lion. The mouse began gnawing at the net.
The net broke and the lion was free.
"Are you alright,Mr.lion?"
"Hey,you are that mouse."
"I told you, I would definitely repay you. You should not look down on me because I am small.
The lion shamefully hung his head.
