Love of MOTHER

This is one of the beautiful story which i got in my mailbox and when I read it, I was just speechless. I am short of words to explain its beauty and the lesson which i learned from it. So I would like to share this with all my dear friends.

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00 
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00 
For going to the store for you: $.50 
Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25 
Taking out the garbage: $1.00 
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00 
Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he'd written on, and this is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me

For all the nights that I've sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you've caused through the years

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, "Mom, I sure do love you." And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: "PAID IN FULL"


You will never know how much your parents worth till you become a parent.

Be a giver not an asker, especially with your parents. there is a lot to give, besides money.
