sleepy stories for adults

In a small town in Italy, 80-year-old Mrs. Teresa lived alone in her modest home, accompanied only by two little canaries named Carla and Paula. Their delightful chirping brought a breath of life into the house.

One day, while Teresa was in the kitchen, she lost her balance and fell, feeling a wave of unconsciousness overtaking her. Her only thought as she faced the possibility of death was the fate of her beloved canaries, Carla and Paula.

Determined to save them, Teresa summoned the last of her strength and crawled with great difficulty toward their cage. With immense effort, she managed to open the cage and set them free before succumbing to exhaustion and passing out.

Carla and Paula, sensing something was wrong, perched on the balcony and chirped loudly to attract the attention of the neighbors. Noticing that the canaries were not in their cage as usual, the neighbors grew concerned and wondered about Teresa's well-being. They rushed to her house to check on her.

They knocked on the door, but there was no response. Alarmed, they called for emergency services and the police to open the door. When the police arrived and gained entry, they found Teresa unconscious and suffering from fractures.

She was rushed to the hospital for treatment. As she regained consciousness, she looked at her canaries and joyfully exclaimed, "You were my only hope!"

The canaries were never far from her during those perilous moments. When the police arrived at the house, the two birds had returned to their cage as if to keep their safe place until their owner returned. Once Teresa was awake, they were brought to her side, becoming an integral part of her recovery.

The story of these two canaries highlights important values such as loyalty, support, belonging, hope, and giving. It demonstrates that the loyalty between living beings can surpass even that between humans.

2- A True Story About Solidarity and Cooperation

Sleepy Time Stories for Adults

Deep in the dense forests of Africa, a scientist conducted a unique experiment with children from a primitive tribe called the Xhosa tribe.

The scientist placed a basket full of delicious fruits next to the trunk of a large tree and then told the children, "The first child to reach the tree will get the entire basket."

When he gave the signal to start, the scientist was surprised to see the children moving together, hand in hand, until they reached the tree. They then divided the fruits among themselves.

When the scientist asked why they did this, as each one of them could have had the basket to themselves, they responded:

"Ubuntu, how can one of us be happy while another is sad?"

In the Xhosa tribe's culture, the word "Ubuntu" means "I am because we are."

This primitive tribe understands a secret to happiness that eludes many advanced civilizations!

In our contemporary world, people seek happiness in wealth and power, but true happiness lies in solidarity and sharing. The secret to genuine happiness is found in the word "we" and not "I."

Everything decreases when you divide it between two, except for happiness; it increases when shared with others.

3- Sleepy Story for Adults

This is a true story that took place in Egypt, narrated by Shenouda, a 48-year-old taxi driver. He is married and has a daughter who suffers from heart problems.

One day, Shenouda was driving his taxi in one of Cairo's streets. A young man in his thirties got into the car. The young man was wearing a white t-shirt and black pants. During the ride, he chatted a bit with Shenouda. The young man's name was Ahmed, and he was polite and courteous.

Shenouda suffers from diabetes and needs insulin. During the ride, he felt dizzy and nauseous and suddenly lost consciousness.

Shenouda woke up at night to find himself in a hospital with no recollection of what had happened. When he asked about the incident, he was told that a person wearing a white t-shirt and black pants had brought him to the hospital.

After receiving treatment and feeling better, Shenouda left the hospital to find that his car, along with his mobile phone and wallet, were missing. There were no details about the young man who had helped him. When the young man was asked to provide his information at the hospital reception, he gave Shenouda's details, paid the bill, and left.

Shenouda felt deep sadness and fear because this taxi was his only source of livelihood. He immediately went to the police station and filed a report about his stolen car.

Following this incident, Shenouda roamed the streets searching for the young man and his lost car. In a moment of despair, he stood in a street, crying hysterically. People gathered around him to help, offering him a chair to sit on and some water to drink.

A fellow taxi driver stopped and offered to drive Shenouda home for free. Shenouda gave him his address, and when they arrived, Shenouda got out of the car and saw something completely unexpected!

He found his taxi parked next to his house. Shenouda hurried inside and found his wife waiting for him and his daughter asleep in bed with her breathing apparatus on.

The strange part of this story was that his wife knew he was in the hospital. Shenouda was astonished and asked her what had happened.

His wife said, "This evening, our daughter was in a very bad state. When I called you, your friend answered and told me that you were in the hospital unconscious due to a diabetic coma. He reassured me that you were in a stable condition. While I was crying, I told him that our daughter had collapsed and was not responding. He asked for our address, and within minutes, he arrived at our house and took her to the hospital. If it weren't for your friend, our daughter would not be alive now. May God bless him and reward him."

At that moment, Shenouda felt immense shame for having accused the young man who had saved both him and his daughter.

Afterward, Shenouda went to the police station to withdraw the report he had filed and continued searching for the young man, but he never found him.

4- The Story of the Shore of Life

Sleepy Story for Adults

A man sat on the beach at night, just before dawn, and found a bag full of stones beside him. He opened it, took out a stone, and threw it into the sea.
He enjoyed the sound the stone made as it hit the water and delighted in tossing them into the sea, continuing to do so to enjoy the sound of the stones disappearing into the water.

As the sun rose, only one stone remained in the bag. When the man picked it up to throw it, he found it was a gem shining under the sunlight! The man realized that everything he had thrown into the sea had been gems, not stones.

The man felt a profound regret and sorrow unlike any he had ever experienced because he had discarded the gems merely to enjoy their sound! Had he known the value of what he was throwing away, he would never have let it go.

Dear reader,
The bag of stones represents the time we waste hour after hour, day after day, and year after year to no avail. Time continues to pass, so do not squander your time and treasures frivolously, or you will regret it when regret can do nothing for you!
