A lot of us take our mothers for granted… It’s something that people don’t really feel comfortable talking about, but it’s true. We sometimes get annoyed by their strict rules, or we find their efforts to keep up with the times to be somewhat “cringy”… Or maybe we don’t like it too much when they overly show affection.
Only when our mothers finally leave Earth do we fully appreciate how much they loved us and how much they meant to us. And by that time, it’s already too late to show the appreciate, love and respect that they deserve.
A man stopped at a flower shop to order some flowers to be wired to his mother who lived two hundred miles away.
As he got out of his car he noticed a young girl sitting on the curb sobbing.
He asked her what was wrong and she replied, “I wanted to buy a red rose for my mother.
But I only have seventy-five cents, and a rose costs two dollars.”
The man smiled and said, “Come on in with me. I’ll buy you a rose.”
He bought the little girl her rose and ordered his own mother’s flowers.
As they were leaving he offered the girl a ride home.
She said, “Yes, please! You can take me to my mother.“
She directed him to a cemetery, where she placed the rose on a freshly dug grave.
The man returned to the flower shop, canceled the wire order, picked up a bouquet and drove the two hundred miles to his mother’s house.
