FAMILY …

I ran into a stranger as he passed by, “Oh excuse me please” was my reply.
~
He said, “Please excuse me too; I wasn’t watching for you.”
We were very polite, this stranger and I. We went on our way and we said goodbye.
~
But at home a different story is told, How we treat our loved ones, young and old.
~
Later that day, cooking the evening meal, My son stood beside me very still.
~
When I turned, I nearly knocked him down. “Move out of the way,” I said with a frown.
~
He walked away, his little heart broken. I didn’t realize how harshly I’d spoken.
~
While I lay awake in bed, God’s still small voice came to me and said,
~
“While dealing with a stranger, common courtesy you use, but the family you love, you seem to abuse.
~
Go and look on the kitchen floor, You’ll find some flowers there by the door.
~
Those are the flowers he brought for you. He picked them himself: pink, yellow and blue.
`
He stood very quietly not to spoil the surprise, you never saw the tears that filled his little eyes.”
~
By this time, I felt very small, And now my tears began to fall.
~
I quietly went and knelt by his bed; “Wake up, little one, wake up,” I said.
~
“Are these the flowers you picked for me?” He smiled, “I found ’em, out by the tree.
~
I picked ’em because they’re pretty like you. I knew you’d like ’em, especially the blue.”
~
I said, “Son, I’m very sorry for the way I acted today; I shouldn’t have yelled at you that way.” He said, “Oh, Mom, that’s okay. I love you anyway.”
~
I said, “Son, I love you too, and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.”

FAMILY
~
Are you aware that if we died tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family we left behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.
~
And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more
into work than into our own family, an unwise investment indeed, don’t you think? So what is behind the story?
~
Do you know what the word FAMILY means?
~
FAMILY = (F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU
~
Pass this message to 7 people except you and me You will receive a miracle tomorrow. Don’t ignore and God will bless you .
