sickly widow had two sons on whom she relied for financial support.
One son sold umbrellas. The first thing the mother did every morning
was to look out to see if the sun was shining or if it looked like
it was going to rain. If it was cloudy, her spirits were good because
there was a chance that it might rain and her son would sell some
umbrellas. But if the sun was shining, she was miserable all day
because no umbrellas would be sold.
widows other son sold fans. Every morning that it looked like
rain, she would get depressed because without the suns heat,
no one was likely to buy fans.
matter what the weather was, the widow had something to fret about.
consoling with a friend one day, the friend remarked, Perk
up. Youve got it made. If the sun is shining, people will
buy fans; if it rains, theyll buy umbrellas. All you have
to do is change your attitude. You cant lose.
that simple thought sank in, the widow lived happily ever after.
