Daughter: "Mummy, may I ask you a question?" Mum: "Yeah sure, what it is?" replied the lady. Daughter: "Mummy, how much do you make an hour?" Mum: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?" the lady said angrily.
Daughter: "I just want to know.. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
Mum: "If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour."
Daughter: "Oh," the little girl replied, with her head down.
Daughter: "Mummy, may I please borrow $10.00 ?" The mother was furious, "If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behaviour." The little girl quietly went to her room and shut the door. The lady sat down and started to get even angrier about the little girl''s questions. How dare she ask such questions only to get some money? After about an hour or so, the lady had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something she really needed to buy with that $10.00 and she really didn't ask for money very often. The lady went to the door of the little girl's 's room and opened the door. "Are you asleep, kiddo?" She asked. "No mum, I'm awake," replied the girl. "I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier" said the mother. "It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $10.00 you asked for." The little girl sat straight up, smiling. "Oh, thank you mummy!" She yelled. Then, reaching under her pillow she pulled out some crumpled up bills. The lady saw that the girl already had money, started to get angry again. The little girl slowly counted out her money, and then looked up at his mother. "Why do you want more money if you already have some?" the mother grumbled. "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little girl replied. "Mummy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you." The mother was crushed. She put her arms around her little daughter, and she begged for her forgiveness. It's just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts. Do remember to share that $20.00 worth of your time with someone you love. If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days.. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.
MY DREADY SHIFTING WEATHER MOODS WITHOUT YOU!!!
