“Intentions Matter”, if you have the gesture for helping someone or to be there, you can
are always capable of doing it. No matter where you are. This is a story of True
Intentions.

An old man lived alone in a town.His only son was in prison. The old man wrote a letter
to his son.

Dear Son,
I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant
my potato garden this year. I’m just getting too old to be
digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you
would dig the plot for me, if you weren’t in prison.
Love,
Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram:
‘For Heaven’s sake, Dad,
don’t dig up the garden !! That’s where I buried the GUNS !!’
At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and
dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.
Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what had happened, and
asked him what to do next.
His son’s reply was: ‘Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad. It’s the
best I could do for you, from here.’

MORAL
IF YOU HAVE THE DESIRE TO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE GENUIELY, YOU CAN ALWAYS DO IT. NO
MATTER IN WHAT POSITION YOU ARE IN. YOUR INTENTIONS MATTERS.

THE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO, YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND A WAY, BUT THINGS YOU DON’T WANT TO DO
YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND AN EXCUSE.
