AND THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS . . .
I saw a Korean woman walking along the road carrying a bundle of sticks on her back. I thought to myself, Life is like that. We all carry around bundles of stories starting from our childhoods and going through the rest of our lives. Some of the stories we have forgotten and others we will never forget. Some of these stories have influenced our lives. Others have had little effect on us.
In this book I have pulled from my bundle of stories to share fifty-two of them with an added moral for each one. I have heard many people who would stand and tell their stories, hoping it would help someone else along lifes journey. I hope you will find these stories interesting and the moral of each one helpful.
