A Change Of Attitude

A Change Of Attitude

The story is told of a woman who during the war went to live with her husband in camp on the Mojave Desert. She simply hated the place; the heat was almost unbearable, 125 degrees in the shade, the wind blew incessantly, and there was sand – sand everywhere.

Finally, in desperation she wrote her parents in Ohio that she couldn’t stand it another minute and was coming home.

Quickly came the reply by airmail from her father – just the two familiar lines:

“Two men looked out from prison bars… one saw the mud, the other saw stars.”

The daughter did some real thinking, not only with the intellect but also with her heart. She decided to stick to her post.

She made friends with the natives, learned to love the country, and eventually wrote a book about it.

The desert hadn’t changed, but her attitude had. Because she listened with her heart to the words her father sent, a whole New World opened up to her.
