A Very Touching Story

glittery bow- purple story1

My little boy came into the kitchen this evening while I was fixing supper. And he handed me a piece of paper he’d been writing on. So, after wiping my hands on my apron, I read it and this is what it said

$For mowing the grass, 5

$For making my own bed this week 1

For going to the store 50$

For playing with baby brother while you went shopping 25$

For taking out the trash 1$

And for raking the yard 2$

Well, I looked at him standing there expectantly, and a thousand memories flashed through my mind

 So I picked up the paper, and turning it over, this is what I wrote

For the 9 months I carried you, growing inside me, NO CHARGE

For the nights I sat up with you, doctored you, prayed for you, NO CHARGE

For the time and the tears , and the cost through the years, NO CHARGE

For the toys, food and clothes, and for wiping your nose, NO CHARGE

Son, when you add it all up, the full cost of my love is NO CHARGE

Well, when he finished reading , he had great big tears, in his eyes, then he looked up at me and said: Mama, I sure do love you
