Understanding is the best thing in the World.

Blogger Barry: This piece from the internet really touched me
deeply. I share it with you.

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell.

He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups and set about nailing it
to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last
nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down
into the eyes of a little boy.

“Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your puppies.”

“Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of
his neck, “These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good
deal of money.”

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his
pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the
farmer.

“I’ve got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?”

“Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out a whistle.
“Here, Dolly!” he called.

Out from the dog house and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four
little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His
eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence,
the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the dog
house.

Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.
Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the
little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to
catch up…

“I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the runt. The
farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said, “Son, you don’t want
that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like
these other dogs would.”

With that the little boy stepped back from the fence,
reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.

In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of
his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir, I don’t run
too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.”

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the
little pup. Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

“How much sir?” asked the little boy… “No charge,”
answered the farmer, “There’s no charge for love.”

The world is full of people who need someone who understands.
