Every time i comes across this story, I always find it full of Life Lesson and very Inspiring.After his father’s death, the Son decided to leave his mother at old age home and visited her on and off.Once he received a call from old age home….Mom very serious ….. please come to visit.
Son went and saw mom very critical, on her dying bed.
He asked: Mom what can I do for you?
Mom replied… “Please install fans in the old age home, there are none…. Also put a fridge for betterment of food because many times I slept without food”.
Son was surprised and asked: mom, while you were here you never complained, now you have few hours left and you are telling me all this, why?
Mom replied…..”it’s OK dear, I’ve managed with the heat, hunger & pain, but when your children will send you here, I am afraid you will not be able to manage!
REFLECTION:Our Parents are like the eraser, where as we children are the pencil..They’re always there for their children, cleaning up their mistakes.. Sometimes along the way they get hurt and become smaller.(older and eventually pass on)
Take care of your Parents, treat them with kindness and most especially love them.
