Here is a touching story:

Daddi Can you give me 10$ ?


A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5 year old son waiting for him at the door.


"Daddy, may I ask you a question?"

"Yeah, sure, what is it?" replied the man.

"Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?"

"That's none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?" the man said angrily.

"I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?" pleaded the little boy.

"If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour."

"Oh, " the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said, "Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?"

The father was furious. "If the only reason you want to know how much money I make is just so you can borrow some 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're being so selfish. I work long, hard hours everyday and don't have time for such childish games."

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little boy's questioning. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money. After an hour or so , the man had calmed down, and started to think he may have been a little hard on his son. May be there was something he really needed to buy with that $10.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door. "Are you asleep son?" he asked.

"No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.

"I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier," said the man. "It's been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you. Here's that $10.00 you asked for."

The little boy sat straight up, beaming. "Oh, thank you daddy!" he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow, he pulled out some more crumpled up bills. The man, seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the man.

"Why did you want more money if you already had some?" the father grumbled.

"Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied. "Daddy, I have $20.00 now... Can I buy an hour of your time?"

touching................what can you say

comes to show, how we take each others for granted.........

there is this one story when this man used to take his son out when he was a lil boy where ever he went.

His son always used to point at a crow and ask his father what it was. Everytime they went out he'd keep asking everytime he saw one. His father got agitated but loved his son and decided to write down everytime his son asked him instead of getting mad.

When his son was a grown man.....................his dad asked him to do a minor task (cant remember what) and his son threw a hissy fit and started moaning and his dad told him what his son used to do and gave him a long list.............


Now i think the moral of this story is very similar to the one we read

Everytime I read this story it brings a tear to my Eye, So I thought maybe it will help others in how much our kids value our time, They need there parents, They need someone to be there for them otherwise they will look to others who could destroy them.
