A Wish Granted

This true story has to touch your heart.

AM I A FIREMAN YET?


In Phoenix , Arizona , a 26 year-old mother stared down  at her 6 year-old son, who was dying of terminal leukemia..
Although her heart was filled with sadness, She also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up & Fulfill all his dreams. Now, that was no longer possible..
The leukemia would see to that. But she still wanted her son’s dream to come true..She took her son’ s hand and asked, ‘Billy, did you ever think about what you wanted to be once you grew up? Did you ever dream and wish what you would do with your life?’
Mommy, ‘I always wanted to be a fireman when I grew up.’
Mom smiled back and said, ‘Let’s see if we can make your wish come true.’
Later that day she went to her local fire Department in Phoenix , Arizona , where she met Fireman Bob, who had a heart as big as Phoenix !
She explained her son’s final wish and asked if it might be possible to give her 6 year-old son a ride around the block on a fire engine.
Fireman Bob said, ‘Look, we can do better than that. If you’ll have your son ready at seven o’clock Wednesday morning, we’ll make him an honorary Fireman for the whole day.  He can come down to the fire station, eat with us, go out on all the fire calls, the whole nine yards!
And if you’ll give us his sizes, we’ll get a real fire uniform for him, with a real fire hat – not a toy — one-with the emblem of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber boots.’
‘They’re all manufactured right here in Phoenix ,  so we can get them fast.’
Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy, dressed him in his uniform and escorted him from his hospital bed to the waiting hook and ladder truck.

Billy got to sit on the back of the truck and help steer it back to the fire station. He was in heaven.There were three fire calls in Phoenix that day and Billy got to go out on all three calls.
He rode in the different fire engines, the Paramedic’s’ van, And even the fire chief’s car.
He was also videotaped for the Local news program.
Having his dream come true, With all the love and attention that was lavished upon him, so deeply touched Billy, that he lived three months longer than any doctor thought possible.
One night all of his vital signs began to drop dramatically and the head nurse, who believed in the hospice concept – that no one should die alone – began to call the family members to the hospital.
Then she remembered the day Billy had spent as a Fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and
Asked if it would be possible to send a fireman in uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he made his transition.
The chief replied, ‘We can do better than that.  We’ll be there in five minutes. Will you please do me a favor?
When you hear the sirens screaming and see the lights flashing, will you announce over the PA system that there is not a fire?’
‘It’s the department coming to see one of its finest members one more time. And will you open the window to his room?’
About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck arrived at the hospital and extended its ladder up to Billy’s third floor open window——–
16 fire-fighters climbed up the ladder into Billy’s room.
With his mother’s permission, they hugged him and held him and told him how much they LOVED him.
With his dying breath, Billy looked up at the fire chief and said,
‘Chief, am I really a fireman now?’
‘Billy, you are, and the Head Chief,  Jesus, is holding your hand,’ the chief said.
With those words, Billy smiled and said, ‘I know, He’s been holding my hand all day, and
The angels have been singing.’
He closed his eyes one last time.

原來是它搶走你的健康

.愛吃魚卻仍得了心臟病?
煎炸魚不是顧心好食物

吃魚比吃豬牛羊肉好,減少心血管疾病和中風的機率。魚油含Omega-3脂肪酸有助降低膽固醇,因為Omega-3家族內的EPA不飽和脂肪酸有很強的抗發炎作用,壓制血管收縮減少,血管可以較鬆弛,血壓就不易飆高。

對治》
魚改用蒸煮的。馬偕營養師趙強提醒大家用蒸或煮的方法料理魚,切莫煎或炸,因為很容易用到Omega-6含量高的油脂如玉米油、葵花籽油、花生油,破壞了魚皮上珍貴的Omega-3。

.忘東忘西、記憶力衰退
你的牙齒是不是也直直落?

日本醫師岡本望(Nozomi Okamoto)以4000名65歲以上老人為研究對象,檢查他們的牙齒健康並評估精神狀況,結果發現,牙齒較少或沒有牙的人,比牙齒多的人更容易有記憶力減退的困擾,或有早期的阿茲海默症。

岡本醫師指出,牙齦發炎不但導致牙齒掉落,也可能釋放出引起發炎的物質,增加腦部發炎的風險,進一步造成神經元壞死,加速記憶力減退。

當腦部功能受損,老人家更不會意識到要照顧牙齒健康,於是牙持續掉落,腦部認知功能也直直落,形成惡性循環。

對治》
食後就要刷牙並用牙線徹底清牙縫間殘渣、牙菌斑,吃幾次食物就要清潔幾次,不能只有早晚才做,也不能只刷而已。(張靜慧)

.總是整天都好累?
要怪你一早起來喝太多咖啡

晨起灌兩、三杯咖啡,的確讓你清醒許多,可是沒多久就完蛋了,害你整天都疲勞地、慵懶地拖磨過一天。

我們腦中樞神經系統神經傳導的調節物質adenosine嘌呤核苷酸(腦部能激起睡眠的機制),本來是可以發揮鎮定作用的,但咖啡因阻斷了adenosine的組成,干擾了鎮定作用,而產生興奮的效果,所以讓你清醒。

但若你早上只喝咖啡, adenosine的量到了中午就回復,讓你再度覺得昏沈想睡覺,根據哈佛大學研究指出。

對治》
晨起只喝一杯咖啡,而把另一杯的量分佈在其他兩個時段,每次只喝半杯。穩定喝進咖啡因,穩定阻斷adenosine,可以保護你保持興奮,不再好想昏沈睡去。

.失眠?
把你的手機拿到別的房間去

許多人習慣睡前講手機,再將手機放枕邊或床頭充電,也可隨時再講手機。

瑞典兩家頂尖大學卡洛琳斯卡與烏普薩拉大學,加上美國密西根州立大學的科學家聯手做的研究發現,手機發出的電磁波會過度刺激腦神經,容易引起情緒與個性變得類似過動症,包括容易憂鬱、不能專心、工作與課業表現一落千丈。

美國麻州理工學院研究更發現,很多手機內的電磁波發出884兆赫的無線訊號,會干擾睡眠,使得一整天的勞累得不到休養生息,有損健康。並且睡前狂講手機的人第二天容易頭痛且覺得比較疲累。

對治》
進睡前一小時就把手機拿出臥房,因為即使手機只是放你房間都干擾健康。若你半夜需要接電話,請使用室內電話。

.脹氣?
嚼太多口香糖啦

口香糖裡含有的天然甜劑木糖醇不能被細菌分解,利用它來取代甜品中的糖分以防止蛀牙,但如果吃太多,會干擾腸胃,引起肚子不舒服,讓你的腸胃過敏,膨
脹起來。

對治》
有幾天改嚼普通的口香糖,讓腸胃休息一下。

.胃灼熱?
你衣服穿太緊啦

穿太緊衣服會把胃酸擠上到食道。

對治》
穿腰身不那麼緊的衣服吧。只在特別場合需要穿緊身衣時才穿,一回家馬上換回寬鬆衣物。

.一直胖起來?
都是深夜影片惹的禍

熬夜讓人生理時鐘混亂,晚上副交感神經開始作用,新陳代謝減緩以便修復疲勞,這時你若只吃一點食物也會被完全吸收,長期下來會使體重增加。

而且芝加哥大學研究發現,連續6天睡不到6小時的人會傾向更想吃,因為瘦素(leptin)降低了19~26%,而瘦素就是釋放訊息告訴大腦要不要再吃的一種荷爾蒙。反而睡眠充足可促進生長激素分泌,增加肌肉質量,不但減少過多體脂肪,也有助增加基礎代謝率。

對治》
每天睡夠至少7小時,連續4天就會看見自己不一樣了。若就是睡不著,起身看書而不是看電視。根據加州大學研究,一年下來你可以減重12公斤。

善有善報

誠實人必多得福

30年前,美國華盛頓一個商人的妻子,在一個冬天的晚上,不慎把一個皮]丟在一家醫院裡。 商人焦急萬分,連夜去找。 因為皮包內不僅有10萬美金,還有一份十分機密的市場信息。 當商人趕到那家醫院時,他一眼就看到,清冷的醫院走廊裡,靠牆蹲著一個凍得瑟瑟發抖的瘦弱女孩,在她懷中緊緊抱著的正是妻子丟的那個皮包。 這個叫希亞達的女孩,是來這家醫院陪病重的媽媽治病的。

相依為命的娘兒倆家裡很窮,賣了所有能賣的東西,湊來的錢還是僅夠一個晚上的醫療費。 沒有錢明天就得被趕出醫院。晚上,無能為力的希亞達在醫院走廊裡徘徊,她天真地想求上帝保佑,能碰上一個好心的人救救她的媽媽。
突然,一個從樓上下來的婦人經過走廊時,腋下的一個皮包掉在地上,可能是她腋下還有別的東西,皮包掉了竟毫無知覺。 當時走廊裡只有希亞達一個人。

她走過去撿起皮包,急忙追出門外,但那位女士卻上了一輛轎車揚長而去。希亞達回到病房,當她打開那個皮包時,娘倆都被裡面成沓的鈔票驚呆了。那一刻,她們心裡明白,用這些錢可能治好媽媽的病。媽媽卻讓希亞達把皮包送回走廊去,等丟皮包的人回來領取。雖然商人盡了最大的努力,希亞達的媽媽還是拋下了孤苦伶仃的女兒。後來商人就領養這個失怙的女孩。

她們母女不僅幫商人挽回了10萬美元的損失,更主要的是那份失而復得的市場信息,使商人的生意如日中天,不久就成了大富翁。被商人領養的希亞達,讀完大學就協助富翁料理商務。雖然富翁一直沒委任她任何實際職務,但在長期的歷練中,富翁的智慧和經驗潛移默化地影響了她,使她成了一個成熟的商業人才。

到富翁晚年時,他的很多想法都要徵求希亞達的意見。富翁臨危之際,留下這樣的一份遺囑: 「在我認識希亞達母女之前我就已經很有錢了。可當我站在貧病交加卻拾巨款而不昧的母女面前,我發現她們最富有,因為她們恪守著至高無上的人生準則,這正是我作為商人最缺少的。我的錢幾乎都是爾虞我詐、明爭暗鬥得來的,是她們使我領悟到人生最大的資本是品行。我收養希亞達既不為知恩圖報,也不是出於同情,而是請了一個做人的楷模。有她在我的身邊,生意場上我會時刻銘記,哪些該做,哪些不該做,什麼錢該賺,什麼錢不該賺。這就是我後來的業績興旺發達的根本原因,我成了億萬富翁。我死後,我的億萬資產全部留給希亞達繼承。這不是饋贈,而是為了我的事業能更加輝煌昌盛。
我深信,我聰明的兒子能夠理解爸爸的良苦用心。 」

富翁在國外的兒子回來時,仔細看完父親的遺囑,立刻毫不猶豫地在財產繼承協議書上簽了字:
「我同意希亞達繼承父親的全部資產。 只請求希亞達能做我的夫人。 」
希亞達看完富翁兒子的簽字,略一沉思,也提筆簽了字: 「我接受先輩留下的全部財產──包括他的兒子。 」
「誠實人必多得福。」
