The Most Important Part of the Body

My mother used to ask me what is the most
important part of the body. Through the
years I would take a guess at what I thought
was the correct answer. When I was younger,
I thought sound was very important to us as
humans, so I said, "My ears, Mommy." She
said, "No. Many people are deaf.

But you keep thinking about it and I will
ask you again soon. Several years passed
before she asked me again. Since making
my first attempt, I had contemplated the
correct answer. So this time I told her,
"Mommy, sight is very important to
everybody, so it must be our eyes."

She looked at me and told me, "You are
learning fast, but the answer is not
correct because there are many people
who are blind." Stumped again, I
continued my quest for knowledge and
over the years, Mother asked me a
couple more times and always her answer
was, "No. But you are getting smarter
every year, my child."

Then last year, my grandpa died. Everybody
was hurt. Everybody was crying. Even my
father cried. I remember that especially
because it was only the second time I saw
him cry. My Mom looked at me when it was
our turn to say our final good-bye to
Grandpa. She asked me, "Do you know the
most important body part yet, my dear?"
I was shocked when she asked me this now.
I always thought this was a game between
her and me. She saw the confusion on my
face and told me, This question is very
important. It shows that you have really
lived in your life. For every body part
you gave me in the past, I have told you
were wrong and I have given you an example
why. But today is the day you need to learn
this important lesson." She looked down at
me as only a mother can. I saw her eyes
well up with tears. She said, "My dear,
the most important body part is your

I asked, "Is it because it holds up my head?"
She replied, "No, it is because it can hold
the head of a friend or a loved one when they
cry. Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on
sometime in life, my dear. I only hope that
you have enough love and friends that you
will always have a shoulder to cry on when
you need it."

Then and there I knew the most important body
part is not a selfish one. It is sympathetic
to the pain of others. People will forget
what you said...People will forget what you
did. But people will NEVER forget how you
made them feel.

The origination of this letter is unknown,
but it brings a blessing to every one who
passes it on . Good friends are like stars don't always see them, but you
always know they're there....
