Period 23 – Sharing and Caring

Lizard Lessons

This is a true story that happened in Japan. In order to renovate his house, a owner broke open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls.

While tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there, because a nail from outside had hammered into one of its feet.

He saw this, felt pity, and at the same time got curious. He checked and found that the nail was hammered six years ago when the house was originally built!

Amazingly, the lizard had survived in such a dangerous position for six years – in a dark wall partition without moving!

It was impossible! Then he wondered how this lizard survived for six years, without moving a single step!

So he stopped his work and observed the lizard; what it had been doing, and what and how it had been eating.

Soon, another lizard appeared with food in its mouth for its friend who was nailed to the wall. It had been feeding it for the past six years….

It had been doing it untiringly for six long years, without giving up hope on its partner.

Imagine what a small creature did, that even humans blessed with brilliant minds don’t usually do!

Song

There’s so many ways that you can care,
So many ways that you can be there
For someone, somebody in need.
You can share a treat, or share a toy,
Share a little kindness and joy,
It’s easy to make a difference indeed!
Sharing is caring, And it isn’t hard to do;
When you share what you have with someone else,
It all comes back to you!
You can share a smile, a friendly word,
Give someone a chance to be heard
Who’s lonely And who needs a friend.
You can make the world a better place,
Put a smile on face after face
Start a circle of love that never ends!
Sharing is caring, And it isn’t hard to do;
When you share what you have with someone else,
It all comes back to you!
Sharing is caring, And it isn’t hard to do;
When you share what you have with someone else,
Love comes back To you!
