Aaron's First Hair Cut by Harrison Medley

A mother who lost her son asked an elderly wise man how to overcome her deep grief. "I can help you, but you must first bring me some mustard seed. You must get it at a home where there has never been any loss or sorrow."

Eagerly the woman started her search, but in every home she visited was someone who had lost a loved one or had known some heartbreaking loss. Returning without any mustard seed, she exclaimed, "How selfish I have been! Sorrow its common to all."

"Ah", he said, "you have learned a valuable lesson. Because you know sorrow, you can sympathize with others and comfort them. And when you do, your own sorrow will be lessened."
