Once upon a time there was a small village in a faraway land. In this village lived a family of four – a father, a mother, a daughter and a son. The family always led a peaceful life and were content with what they had.
One day, the father and the son decided to take a stroll in the nearby woods. On their way, they found a large footstone. It looked like it was very old, as it was covered in moss and had small cracks and creases on its surface. The father and the son were so intrigued by the footstone, that they decided to take it home with them.
Back at home, the father and the son discussed what the footstone could mean. After some time, they came to the conclusion that it might be a sign from the gods that their family should live life with respect and gratitude for all the blessings that have been bestowed upon them.
The family decided to keep the footstone in their home as a reminder to be thankful for everything they had. Every day, they would go to the footstone and offer a small prayer of gratitude.
The family soon saw the positive changes that came from respecting and appreciating their blessings. They all grew to be kinder and more generous, and the village prospered.
The moral of this story is to appreciate everything we have in life, and to show respect and gratitude for the blessings we receive. It is only through doing so that we can truly live a fulfilling life.
