Who Is Taking Who For A Walk?

I came across this and find it really meaningful. It's in Chinese, but I have also provided a translation to English below it. 

Dedicate this to all parents out there, with a special needs child(ren). Smiles, because we are blessed to be able to slow down and appreciate our own child and every other little things more. Jia You!

上帝给我一个任务, 让我牵着一只蜗牛去散步
我不能走得太快
因为蜗牛已经尽力在爬了
每次总是挪那么一点点
我催它、吓唬它、责备它
蜗牛用抱歉的眼光看着我
仿佛在说我已经尽了全力了
真奇怪
为什么上帝要我牵一只蜗牛去散步呢
好吧 放手吧
反正上帝不管了
我还管什么呢
任蜗牛往前爬
我在后边跟着生闷气
突然我闻到花香
原来这边有个花园
我感到微风吹来
原来夜里的风是这么美妙
我听到了鸟声、听到虫鸣
看到满天的星斗温柔而亮丽
怎么以前我从未体会
我忽然想起来
莫非是我弄错了
原来上帝是叫蜗牛牵着我去散步

God gave me a task, he asked me to take a snail for a walk 
I am not able to go too fast 
Because the snail is already trying very hard to climb
Its every move is always bit by bit 
I urge it, scare it and blame it
But the Snail looked at me with sorry eyes
As if to say 'I've tried my best' 
This is so weird! 
Why does God want me to bring a snail for a walk?
Well, let it go! 
Anyway, since God didn't care about us too! 
Why should I care so much? 
I allowed the snail to crawl on its own
And I sulked while following behind..
Suddenly I smell flowers!
I hadn't realised before that there is a garden here!
I felt the breeze blowing!
I hadn't realised that the night breeze can be so wonderful!
I heard the birds and insects chirped
I saw the beautiful sky full of stars...
Why hadn't I been able to experience all theses?
Suddenly I remembered...
Could it be I have made ​​a mistake?
God had asked the snail to bring me for a walk instead!
