We should give Time to our Loved Ones!!!
A man came home from work late, tired
and irritated, to find his 5-year old son
waiting for him at the door.
SON: ‘Daddy, May I ask you a question?’
DAD: ‘Yeah sure, what it is?’ replied the
SON: ‘Daddy, how much do you make an
DAD: ‘That’s none of your business. Why
do you ask such a thing?’ the man said

SON: ‘I just want to know. Please tell me,
how much do you make an hour?’
DAD: ‘If you must know, I make $50 an
SON: ‘Oh,’ the little boy replied, with his
head down.
SON: ‘Daddy, may I please borrow $25?’
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 don’t work hard every day for such
childish frivolities.’ 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: Maybe there was something he
really needed to buy with that $25.00 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 $25 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
‘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
$50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come home early tomorrow. I
would like to have dinner with you. I love
you daddy’
The father was crushed. He put his arms
around his little son, and he begged for his
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 $50
worth of your time with someone you love.
