Today I received this incredible email from a family friend.  I thought I must share it with everyone ..


Quote --

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and he handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on. After his mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

For cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00
For going to the store for you: .50
Babysitting my kid brother while you went shopping: .25
Taking out the garbage: $1.00
For getting a good report card: $5.00
For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00
Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he'd written on, and this is what she wrote:

For 9 months I carried you while you were growing inside me: No Charge.

For all the nights that I've sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you: No Charge.

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you've caused through the years: No Charge.

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead: No Charge.

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose: No Charge.

Son, When you add it up, the cost of my love is: No Charge.


When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said, 'Mom, I sure do love you'.

And then he took the pen and in great big letters he wrote: 'PAID IN FULL'



Your Rab has decreed, that you worship none save Him, and (that you show) kindness to parents.  If one of them or both of them attain old age with you, say not 'Fie' unto them nor repulse them, but speak unto them a gracious word.  And lower unto them the wing of submission through mercy, and say: My Rab!  Have mercy on them both as they did care for me when I was little.
Surah 17 : Verses 23/24


Unquote --


Regardless of age, status or financial independence, never stop loving and caring for your parents.  Always remember, among humans, they are the only source of unconditional love in this world.

What a cute post.  It almost brought tears in my eyes too  Cry ...  Smiley

At least the kid showed his gratitude and waived the 'payment.'  Most kids and adults in the west make no concessions when it comes to money - not even to parents.  I wonder why this world is changing so much and in so many negative ways  Sad
