I ran into a stranger as he passed by,
"Oh excuse me please" was my reply.
He said, "Please excuse me too;
I wasn't watching for you."
We were very polite, this stranger and I.
We went on our way and we said good-bye.
But at home a different story is told,
How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
Later that day, cooking the evening meal,
My son stood beside me very still.
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down.
"Move out of the way," I said with a frown.
He walked away, his little heart broken.
I didn't realize how harshly I'd spoken.
While I lay awake in bed,
God's still small voice came to me and said,
"While dealing with a stranger,
common courtesy you use,
but the family you love, you seem to abuse.
Go and look on the kitchen floor,
You'll find some flowers there by the door.
Those are the flowers he brought for you.
He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise,
you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."
By this time, I felt very small,
And now my tears began to fall.
I quietly went and knelt by his bed;
"Wake up, little one, wake up," I said.
"Are these the flowers you picked for me?"
He smiled, "I found 'em, out by the tree.
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
I knew you'd like 'em, especially the blue."
I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for the way I acted today;
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way."
He said, "Oh, Mom, that's okay.
I love you anyway."
I said, "Son, I love you too,
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue."
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company
that we are working for could easily replace us in
a matter of days.
But the family we left behind will feel the loss
for the rest of their lives.
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family,
an unwise investment indeed,
don't you think?
So what is behind the story?
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU
I've got an email from a friend, not sure if its true but it is good to be alert:-
MOBILE USERS - NUMBER CAN BE DIALED WITHOUT SIM
> CARD DURING EMERGENCY.
> The Emergency Number worldwide for GSM Mobile is 112
> and not 999.You can dial 112 even without a SIM Card.
> If you find yourself out of coverage area of your
> mobile network and there is an emergency, dial 112 and
> the mobile will search any existing network to
> establish the emergency number for you.
> Do share this important info with others too. Hope
> you'll never need to use it though!
> And interestingly... This number 112 can be dialed

1) YOU SHOULD DO BEFORE YOU LOSS YOUR MOBILE PHONE
Before anyone loses his / her mobile phone, they
should first check the serial number of the phone by
keying in [*#06#].
A 15-digit number will appear on the screen. Please
record it down and keep it for reference.
In case the phone is lost, the rightful owner can call
the service provider (Singtel, M1, Starhub, etc) to
disable the phone by providing the serial number.
That means, the person who took the phone cannot use
it at all even if they change into a new SIM card.
If everyone knows this procedure, there would not be
much use taking away someone's lost phone.
The monorail will cease operations from 16 March 2005. Please inform all Sentosa guests and island partners that the last monorail service will operate as per normal on 15 March 2005 from 10pm to 10.30pm
