Thread: The Missing Rib

  1. #1

    Post The Missing Rib

    In a mood of sharing this B'ful story with everybody here Hope you won't mind me posting a story..



    A girl in love asked her boyfriend..

    Girl: Tell me... who do you love most in this world?

    Boy: You, of course!

    Girl: In your heart, what am I to you?

    Boy: The boy thought for a moment and looked intensly in her eyes and
    said, "You are my rib. In the Bible, it was said that God saw that
    Adam was lonely, during his sleep; God took one of Adam's rib and
    created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only
    when you find the woman of your life; you'll no longer feel the
    lingering ache in your heart."

    After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while.
    However, the youthful couple began to drift apart due to the busy
    schedule of life and the never-ending worries of daily problems...
    their life became mundane. All the challenges posed by the harsh
    realities of life began to gnaw away their dreams and love for each

    The couple began to have more quarrels and each quarrel became more

    One day, after the quarrel, the girl ran out of the house.... At the
    opposite side of the road, she shouted, "You don't love me!" The boy
    hated her hildishness and out of impulse, retorted, "Maybe, it was a
    mistake for us to be together! You were never my missing rib!"

    Suddenly, she turned quiet and stood there for a long while.... He
    regretted what he said but words spoken are like thrown away water, you
    can never take it back. With tears, she went home to pack her things
    and was determined in breaking-up.

    Before she left the house, "If I'm really not your missing rib, please
    let me go.....

    She continued, "It is less painful this way...let us go on our separate
    ways and search for our own partners..."

    Five years went by.... He never remarried but he had tried to find out
    about her life indirectly...... She had left the country and back....
    She had married a foreigner and divorced..... He felt anguished that
    she never waited for him.

    In the dark and lonely night, he lit his cigarette and felt the
    lingering ache in his heart. He couldn't bring himself to admit that
    he was missing her.

    One day, they finally met.... At the airport, a place where there were
    many reunions and good-byes.... He was going away on a business trip.
    She was standing there alone, with just the security door separating
    them. She smiled at him gently.

    Boy): How are you?

    Girl): I'm fine. How about you... Have you found your missing rib?

    Boy): No.

    Girl): I'll be flying to New York in the next flight.

    Boy): I'll be back in 2 weeks time. Give me a call when you are back...
    You know my number... Nothing has changed.

    With a smile, she turned around and waved good-bye.. "Good-bye." One
    week later, he heard of her death. She had perished in New York. In
    the event that shocked the world.. Midnight.....

    Once again, he lit his cigarette..... And like before,he felt the
    lingering ache in
    his heart.... He finally knew, she was the missing rib that he had
    carelessly broken.

    Sometimes, people say things out of moments of fury..... Most often
    than not, the outcome could be disastrous and detrimental.... We went
    our frustrations 99% at our loved ones.... And even though we know
    that we ought to "think twice and act wisely", it's often easier said
    than done.

    Things happen each day, many of which are beyond our control. Let us
    treasure every
    moment and everyone in our lives. Tomorrow may never come; give and
    accept what you have today.........

    Thanks Sunita, your story really made me cry, I could never thought a person who is always so happy go lucky kind of attitude can say something so profound. I will definitely try this in my personal life as I often get angry on my loved ones and say something which I shouldn't. Thank you once again for sharing a very sweet story that touched my heart.

    That story is atleast a bit familiar to everyone from their lives, too bad we don't remember it before we open our mouth and say something bad/stupid.

    Beautiful story, thank you.

    Honestly, sometime Blue I get amaze by reading your posts . The maturity I see in your posts and often you say something that has a profound meaning. At the age of 15 if you are thinking like this, I am sure you will grow up and become a wise and kind hearted person, God Bless you.

    The story is touchy , but the moral lesson of the story is very important. Each & every person has the worth, no matter who they are, & we do realize that only when they leave us forever. We’re encircled by our beloved persons and most of the time we just ignore that life is nothing but them. But it feels like we’re missing ribs with an unpleasant sensation only when we miss or lose any of them. So, why not live each and every day with our beloved one thinking that, this could be the last day with them & be the best with them .

    Think if you throw in a dying dog then it would be a great idea for country song.
