Reminder to ALL on my SS#14

OMG! What happened to the week? Isn't it too quick to an end?

Maybe or maybe NOT... b4 I proceed to my SS post this w/end, I want to share a lil reminder to us All, who's been working a bit too hard. Stop, Look & Ponder... awhile, it won't harm to read. This might open our hearts, would'nt you?

A lady came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find her 5-year old daughter waiting for her at the door.
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."

: "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.
Yes, this was Friday p.m.! Am looking out thru my office window... gray day!
Unlike the above, when I went out to take a fresh air, just a cpl of hrs, this awaits me
This catches my eyes! Sun's going behind the clouds or a cloud of black smoke?
Who don't love bridges? Strong & solid foundation, like GH of mine §;-)
When I came home, GH car & my table & chair said "Welcome back home"
My cubby house at the backyard awaits me & joined the fun time too!
Arrrgghh... my mismatch stupsy-turvy room! Trying to be a wonder woman.
Finish the chores together---
Can't U see that I'm loving skies & reflection, too...he he...
Don't forget to drop by at Tracy & say "hi" from me...

  1. Few of us seem able to capture nice shadows at work and at home. Sundays we all await to showcase our shadows! The weekend is close by on Friday, and whether sunny or very cloudy, we will have a chance to relax, soon...

    That is a wonderful story. Our children are quite big, yet they need some of our time and guidance still. They may have been little once, but are still ours!

  2. The story is so true..I always think of that song,"Cat in the Cradle", not sure I have it right.
    It is on the same theme.
    Beautiful pictures/shadows.
    How are things? Hope all is well. Sending blessings/love from Maine..xoxoRosebud.

  3. Your story was really moving..... and your pics are cool ;)

  4. like those shadows through the office window the best!!

  5. Yes, this weather is topsy-turvy here in Iowa too, warm, humid and rain showers, just hope they don't turn nasty, you never know in the spring's tornado season and I could be flying home any minute to grab my lil' Scratchy from harms way.
    Don't know if you have storms like that over there, but they are terrifying!!! Especially when the storm sirens go off, it's like an air raid...very scarey, like the end of the world...and there's spideys in my old basement, so I only run there in absolute urgency.

    Have a great weekend with that sweet hubby of yours...take a break and breath!!!

    See ya crazy too...s

  6. Lovely story and great shadows all in one sweet post. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Så tänkvärt det var det där.
    Vi borde stanna upp oftare och tänka lite.

    Hoppas det är bra med dig min vän.
    Kramen Synnöve.

  8. Wahhhhh nakakaiyak naman tong story mo sistah... But its true, minsan yung mga working Moms nakakaligtaan na ang bonding moments minsa sa mga junakis dahil sa kabisihan sa work. That's why I don't regret being A SAHM.

    Great shadows you have as always! Our weather over here is a weirdo.. Maulan at malamig na naman, kahapon mainit..

  9. Love the shadow imagesxlynda

  10. I like the shadows....Our surrounding is amazing :)

  11. Det var en fin och lessam berättelse, dina bilder och text blev så suddiga när jag fortsatte neråt. Så gripande med den lilla flickan, man blir ju jätteledsen. Din arbetsplats ser fin ut, du visar alltid så närvarande foton.
    Ha en härlig söndag vännen
    Stor kram

  14. What a great story!
    Your pics could be from Finland - so similar is the neighborhood!

    We're still in a hotel, argh! but we don't move in before all the work is finished.
    Otherwise everything's fine. We've met many nice people, found different kinds of restaurants, cafes etc.

    Have a great week ahead,
    greetings from Casa!


  15. A break in the clouds—
    sun slants through bedroom window,
    my heart rejoices.

    Wisdom stone
