Do not Be Sad When I am Sick!

Once Hodja had to stay in bed for awhile because he was seriously ill. But even in spite of his sickness, he was still of jovial fellow.

His wife was very concerned about her husband’s health and she could not hold back her tears. When Hodja saw her crying, he said to her:

– Why are you crying, dear? Go wash your face and put on your dress and put a smile on your face.

– But Hodja, she said, I can’t do that when you are in such pain and suffering!

– Yes, you must! replied Hodja. I want you to do it because I know that the angel of death would come soon. If he sees how beautiful you are, maybe he will change his mind and decide to take you instead!
