100 Dollars for Love


SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
DAD: "Yeah sure, what is it?"
SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?"
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! (With his head down).
SON: "Daddy, may I please borrow $50?"
The father was furious.
DAD: "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:
Maybe 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.

DAD: "Are you asleep, son?"

SON: "No daddy, I'm awake".
DAD: "I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier. 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.
SON: "Oh, thank you daddy!"
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.

DAD: "Why do you want more money if you already have some?"

SON: "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do.

"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 and 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.

Some things are more important.


How is it...have you ever read this story before??? Simple but full of message right. I do understand what that boy felt... I have mom which so busy whit her work...but I dont mind cause I do understand her...thus she do all that just for my sake, for me n my sibling. I believe your parent do the same thing too right. You know what, the true is...sometime I do felt soooo envy with my friend. Years during school time, not even once my dad visit me in school. Yupp, if you do follow n read my blog before, you must know why right. I use to cry for that cause every family days, there is no dad beside me...and mom, yaaa she need to go for work...while I just enjoy the view looking for my friend family come visit their chill....but that was yearss ago n I really do understand my situation was not as the same they are...

Looking backward make me grown up and be more like a man I have to be... I dont mind what happen from my past since I know why its happen, but what important now is that the future. InsyaAllah, if one day I had married and get a chill I will try my best didt let my chill felt what I felt before. 

You guys, I dont know if you already married and have a chill or still single like me or what so everrr...but what important is that, I hope from that simple story you guys got the message. Do at least give some times for your love one cause you wont ever know if you able to grab that time ever again. Life just for once...

potpetpotpet : Mom Dad, no matter what happen from the past...you guys still the love in my heart. Thank You Allah for this gift....wish you protect them for me here and after. InsyaAllah
