Asalaamu Alaikum a Rahmatullahi Wa BAraakatu,

I have a question.......A long time ago I read a two stories one was about two brothers I dont remember how it all goes but in the end the one of the brothers stood home and lead a simple life and the other became a king and after he returned home they spoke and the simple brother said the kings was worse because he witnessed war and killings and so on, and the king said something like While Ihave witnessed this you have done nothing or have not expeienced anything..... Its a bad example but I know it goes something like that............the second was a story about a teacher who gave a class and in the class he took a large cylinder or something and first filled it with golf balls then pebbles and then sand and finally a cup of coffee...the teacher said the golf balls represented the most important things in life like religion family friends and so on.....the pebbles represented work, home, and car.....I dont remember what the sand represented.....and a student asked what the coffee stood for and he said no matter how busy life gets you should always have time for a cup of coffee with a friend......I think I read that one here.....If anyone knows where I can find these stories InshaAllah please let me know......Jazaak Allahu Kjair
Asalaamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa BAraakatu

salam sister !
i also had these stories but i don't know where i placed them .. i'll have to dig them up from my computer !
but i have another nice true one to share about perceptions!

The stranger and the Gingernuts story:
At the airport after a tiring business trip a lady's return flight was delayed. She went to the airport shop, bought a book, a coffee and a small packet containing five gingernut biscuits. The airport was crowded and she found a seat in the lounge, next to a stranger.

After a few minutes' reading she became absorbed in her book. She took a biscuit from the packet and began to drink her coffee. To her great surprise, the stranger in the next seat calmly took one of the biscuits and ate it. Stunned, she couldn't bring herself to say anything, nor even to look at the stranger. Nervously she continued reading.

After a few minutes she slowly picked up and ate the third biscuit. Incredibly, the stranger took the fourth gingernut and ate it, then to the woman's amazement; he picked up the packet and offered her the last biscuit. This being too much to tolerate, the lady angrily picked up her belongings, gave the stranger an indignant scowl and marched off to the boarding gate, where her flight was now ready.

Flustered and enraged, she reached inside her bag for her boarding ticket, and found her unopened packet of gingernuts...

:)

hope you liked it
