Story of The little boy (Must Read)

Sally jumped up as soon as she saw the surgeon come out of the operating room. She said: “How is my little boy? Is he going to be all right? When can I see him?”

The surgeon said, “I’m sorry. We did all we could, but your boy didn’t make it.”

Sally said, “Why do little children get cancer? Doesn’t God care any more? Where were you, God, when my son needed you?”

The surgeon asked, “Would you like some time alone with your son? One of the nurses will be out in a few minutes, before he’s transported to the university.”

Sally asked the nurse to stay with her while she said good-bye to son. She ran her fingers lovingly through his thick red curly hair.

“Would you like a lock of his hair?” the nurse asked.

Sally nodded yes. The nurse cut a lock of the boy’s hair, put it in a plastic bag and handed it to Sally. The mother said, “It was Jimmy’s idea to donate his body to the university for study. He said it might help somebody else. “I said no at first, but Jimmy said, ‘Mom, I won’t be using it after I die. Maybe it will help some other little boy spend one more day with his Mom.” She went on, “My Jimmy had a heart of gold. Always thinking of someone else. Always wanting to help others if he could.”

Sally walked out of Children’s mercy Hospital for the last time, after spending most of the last six months there. She put the bag with Jimmy’s belongings on the seat beside her in the car. The drive home was difficult. It was even harder to enter the empty house. She carried Jimmy’s belongings, and the plastic bag with the lock of his hair to her son’s room. She started placing the model cars and other personal things back in his room exactly where he had always kept them. She laid down across his bed and, hugging his pillow, cried herself to sleep.

It was around midnight when Sally awoke. Laying beside her on the bed was a folded letter. The letter said:

“Dear Mom,

I know you’re going to miss me; but don’t think that I will ever forget you, or stop loving you, just ’cause I’m not around to say I LOVE YOU. I will always love you, Mom, even more with each day. Someday we will see each other again. Until then, if you want to adopt a little boy so you won’t be so lonely, that’s okay with me. He can have my room and old stuff to play with. But, if you decide to get a girl instead, she probably wouldn’t like the same things us boys do. You’ll have to buy her dolls and stuff girls like, you know. Don’t be sad thinking about me. This really is a neat place. Grandma and Grandpa met me as soon as I got here and showed me around some, but it will take a long time to see everything. The angels are so cool. I love to watch them fly. And, you know what? Jesus doesn’t look like any of his pictures. Yet, when I saw Him, I knew it was Him. Jesus himself took me to see GOD! And guess what, Mom? I got to sit on God’s knee and talk to Him, like I was somebody important. That’s when I told Him that I wanted to write you a letter, to tell you good-bye and everything. But I already knew that wasn’t allowed. Well, you know what Mom? God handed me some paper and His own personal pen to write you this letter. I think Gabriel is the name of the angel who is going to drop this letter off to you. God said for me to give you the answer to one of the questions you asked Him ‘Where was He when I needed him?’ “God said He was in the same place with me, as when His son Jesus was on the cross. He was right there, as He always is with all His children.

Oh, by the way, Mom, no one else can see what I’ve written except you. To everyone else this is just a blank piece of paper. Isn’t that cool? I have to give God His pen back now. He needs it to write some more names in the Book of Life. Tonight I get to sit at the table with Jesus for supper. I’m, sure the food will be great.

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you. I don’t hurt anymore. The cancer is all gone. I’m glad because I couldn’t stand that pain anymore and God couldn’t stand to see me hurt so much, either. That’s when He sent The Angel of Mercy to come get me. The Angel said I was a Special Delivery! How about that?

Signed with Love from: God, Jesus & Me.”

  49. marsha says:

    I lost my husband to the after effects of cancer. I seen him suffer with Chem and Radiation, that riddled his body almost useless. Yes, he beat the cancer, but in the end his body gave in to the after effects. I was sad, because I wanted him to live for me, but God said his suffering was done and took to be well and whole. So I wait until I see him again. God truly loves his children no matter how old you are. I love the story, because we know how God loves his children and always does what’s best.

    • Vinay Jalan says:

      @Marsha .. Felt really sorry to hear about your Husband…MAy God bless His Soul…I Agree with you dear God always loves his children…

  70. Julia says:

    Sorry but I just had to say this”God couldn’t stand to see me hurt so much” WHY GOD HURT HIM in the first place!!!! WHY children get cancer and die and SUFFER, and some of them suffer years< and parents try as hard as they can to save their kids… I am sorry but I have known so many stories where we all prayed the child will get better and nothing… even though it was said "if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them. " hundreds of brokenhearted , faithful moms prayed for one child and NOTHING but agonizing pain and horrible uneasy death was given to a child. Our God is far from being kind…

  71. Iggy says:

    i am encouarged to be more thankful and be more trusting of God. that He is sovereign.

  72. Melissa says:

    This story is amazing.Im a true believer.. I lost my 4yr old daughter in june this year,she had cancer.. Strong fighter she was.. The last look she had was like she was looking at someone in the corner with a tear running down her left cheek,then looked at her dad who was holding her,then looked at me and slowly closed her eyes peacefully. I believe an angel was waiting for her in that corner.. She never too like to see me hurt,I was 9 months pregnant the day we buried my baby,straight after her burial I was in labour,and hour and a half later we were blessed with a healthy baby girl.. God is good… missing you always,love you R.I.P Athena Tavau Te’o xx
