The father replied, “There is much time left for that, concentrate on your studies for now”
Days passed and the little girl became 14 and one day while studying she fainted and was rushed to the hospital. The Doctor examined her and told her father that she had a bad heart and had very less chances of survival.
When the little girl was lying in the hospital bed, she said, “Daddy, did the Doctor say that I am going to die?” The father replied, “No! You will live” as he rushed towards the door weeping.
The girl then asked, “How can you be so sure, Daddy?” Father turned around and said with tears in his eyes, “Because I Know, my Child!” and then smiled at her trying to hide his emotions.
Days passed and the girl turned 15 when she recovered from the illness and came home to find a letter on her bed. It read, “My dearest daughter, if you are reading this it means all went well as I had told you. One day you had asked me what I was going to present you for your 1st year of high school.”
“I didn’t know then that my present to you would be MY HEART. Love You, Daddy”
His father was suffering from fatal illness and had lesser time than his daughter. He had donated his Heart to her daughter so she could live.
Father is a great blessing from Almighty God. Take time and tell your Dad how much you love him and most importantly thank Almighty God for giving you a great father.
Blessed be the Fathers who make silent sacrifices for their children.
