The story may not be exactly as ours but it does apply to us in the meaning behind it and the concept most certainly does for majority of us, mothers, fathers, career people, students and kids alike. It really makes you think long and hard and makes you look DEEP into yourself...

Thank You Grace......keep them rolling in.

F A M I L Y  

I banged into a stranger as he passed by,
'Oh excuse me please' was my reply.

He said, 'Please excuse me too;
I couldn't see you coming.'

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, 
when I went to kitchen to take dinner...

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, 
A 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'

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 them, out by the tree. 
I picked 'em because they're pretty like you.
 I knew you'd like them, especially the blue.' 

I said, 'I'm very sorry for the way I acted today; 
I shouldn't have yelled at you that way.' 
I said, 'I love you too, 
and I do like the flowers, especially the blue.'


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. 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 that the word
