still they can give...

A heartwarming news I found on internet today.

In Iwate prefecture, Tohoku, the owner of a shop which has been damaged by Tsunami in March found that two pair of swallows were making nests under the eaves of his partially destroyed building. He was going to dismantle the shop to build a new one but decide to put off doing it until the baby birds would leave the nests out of pity for swallows. They must have great difficulty to find places to make the nests in those area where many buildings are badly destroyed. And I believe the owner would feel consolation in his decision.

It's just a small news but warmed my heart really, the shop owner himself must have great difficulties in his life still he could be so sympathetic to those small creatures.

The happiness is, I believe, coming from what we can give, not from we can take...
