    The most important part of the body

    The most important part of the body 

    One day when I was a child my mother asked me:

    "My child, what do you think is the most important part of the body?"

    In those years as I was so young, the sounds of nature fascinated me and therefore I told her........"My ears, mother".

    Then she answered me: "No, you´re wrong.

    A lot of people are deaf, but they are able to manage themselves every day on their own very well."

    Some years later when I was a little older, she asked me the same question.

    This time, I reflected on it before answering and I told myself that I knew the answer;

    "Mother, I believe that the eyes are the most important part of the body".

    Again she said no. "You still don´t know the answer my child".

    "Just think how many blind people there are without the use of their sightand yet they are able to manage very well too".

    She often asked me the same question many years later when I was an adult, but I was wrong every time.

    A few months ago, my grandfather died. Everyone cried......even me, because he was very loved and so we were all very sad.

    That day, my mother hugged me with great emotion and told me:

    "Today I want you to know what the most important part of the body is.

    It´s your shoulder because it can support the head of a loved one when he or she cries.

    I only want you to have love and friends; this way you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you need to"
