I dreamed I had an interview with God.

"Come in," God said. "So, you would like to interview Me?"

"If you have the time," I said.

God smiled and said, "My time is eternity and is enough to do everything;
what questions do you have in mind to ask me?"

"What surprises you most about mankind?"

God answered, "That they get bored of being children, are in a rush to
grow up, and then long to be children again.  That they lose their
health to make money and then lose their money to restore their
health.  That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the
present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future.
That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had
never lived."

God's hands took mine and we were silent for a while and then I asked,
"As a parent, what are some of life's lessons you want your children
to learn?"

God replied with a smile, "To learn that they cannot make anyone love
them.  What they can do is to let themselves be loved.  To learn that
what is most valuable is not what they have in their lives, but who
they have in their lives.  To learn that it is not good to compare
themselves to others.  All will be judged individually on their own
merits, not as a group on a comparison basis!  To learn that a rich
person is not the one who has the most, but is one who needs the
least.  To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound
wounds in persons we love, and that it takes many years to heal them.
To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.  To learn that there
are persons who love them dearly, but simply do not know how to
express or show their feelings.  To learn that money can buy
everything but happiness.  To learn that two people can look at the
same thing and see it totally different.  To learn that a true friend
is someone who knows everything about them, and likes them anyway.  To
learn that it is not always enough that they be forgiven by others,
but that they have to forgive themselves."

I sat there for a while enjoying the moment. I thanked Him for His
time and for all that He has done for me and my family, and He
replied, "Anytime. I'm here 24 hours a day.  All you have to do is ask
for me, and I'll answer."

People will forget what you said.  People will forget what you did,
but People will never forget how you made them feel.
