176- Mother Indebted to John

 

John's mom asked him to buy a few things on his way back from school. He bought the items but he did not wish to ask her for the money. So he left her a note saying:

Mom owes John:

Bread 25

Salt 60

Matches 15

 Total  "Total 100"

 

John left the note on the table. His mom saw the note and she ignored it. At dinnertime he found a dollar with a note, saying:

 

"John owes mom"

Cloths free

Food free

Care and kindness Free

 Total "Total none"

 

John read mom’s note, was touched and tears came down from his eyes and he went to the kitchen. He hugged and kissed his mom and returned the dollar to her. In the evening mom offered John $5 and said to him, “Our love is above all.
