Can I borrow $25 ?

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

SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'

DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.

SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a
thing?' the man said angrily.

SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do
you make an hour?'

DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'

The father 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 don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.'

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the
little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only
to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and
started to think:

Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that
$25.00 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 out my aggravation on you.
Here's the $25 you asked for.'

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!'
he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out
some crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get
angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked
up at his father.

'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the
father grumbled.

'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy
replied.

'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please
come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.'

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son,
and he begged for his 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 $50
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 hours. But the family and
friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of
their lives.

Ah Brudder Sweet. I can understand. It is stories like this that reminds us to take life easy and take care of our family especially the wifeys and the littee kids or else they will think we only have time for work and friends and no time for them... but of course thinking aloud, we are all a little guilty of this and that once in a while... so let's take a time off and bless our souls and pause a while to remember our littel ones =D> =D> =D>

I like this one .... here goes...

The Window

A young couple moved into a new neighbourhood.

The next morning, while they are eating breakfast, the young woman sees her neighbor hang the wash outside.

The laundry is not very clean, she said, she doesn't know how to wash correctly. Perhaps she need better laundry soap.

The husband looked on, but remain silent. :-#

Every time her neighbor would hang the wash to dry, the young woman would make the same comments.

About 1 month later, the young woman was surprised to see a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband: Look ! She has learned how to wash correctly. I wonder who taught her this.

The husband said: I got up early this morning to clean our windows. :thumbsup:

And so it is with life:
What we see when watching others, depends on the purity of the window through which we look.

Before we give any critcism, it might be good idea to check our state of mind and ask ourselves if we are ready to see the good rather than to be looking for something in the person we are about to judge.

And Oh Yes! I almost forgot... I see you much clearer today than I did yesterday... And you? :mrgreen:

Wishing you a nice day... I do see good in sista kissnight =D> =D>


Best quote I have read today ! Yeah !

This cruiser is really the personified Loony Tunes character ....Pepe le Pew

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pepe_Le_Pew

and Kissnight, the personified Penelope Pussycat......

Cruiser is always after Kissnight blowing kisses......just like Pepe is always chasing and smooching after the alter cat Penelope.
