Love Ur parents if u want to be loved by ur children.

THE WOODEN BOWL

 

   A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and afour-year old grandson. The old man's hands trembled, his eyesight wasblurred, and his step faltered. The family ate together nightly at thedinner table. But

the elderly grandfather's shaky hands and failing sight made eating rather

difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped theglass often milk spilled on the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law

became irritated with the mess. "We must do something about

grandfather,"

said the son. I've had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and

food on

the floor. So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.

There,

grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner at the

 

dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was

served in a wooden bowl. Sometimes when the family glanced in

grandfather's

direction, he had a tear in his eye as he ate alone. Still, the only

words

the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or

spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

 

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood

scraps on the floor. He asked the child sweetly, "What are youmaking?"

Just

as sweetly, the boy responded, "Oh, I am making a little bowl for you

and

mama to eat your food from when I grow up." The four-year-old smiled and

 

went back to work. The words so struck the parents that they were

speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no

word

was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took

grandfather's hand and gently led him back to the family table.

 

For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for

 

some reason, neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a

fork

was dropped, milk spilled, or the tablecloth soiled. Children are

remarkably perceptive.

 

Love Ur parents if u wants to be loved by ur children.
