SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?” DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?” 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 $ 100 an
hour.” SON: “Oh,” the little boy replied, with his head
down. SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow $ 50?” 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 work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.” 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: May be there was
something he really needed to buy with that $
50 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 $ 50 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 $ 100 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 $100 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..!! ♥
