How much by the hour

The little boy goes back into the house with a sad look on his face.   He returns to his father and asks:

- Dad, could you lend me $10.00?

- Well, that's what you wanted to know. To borrow money from me

- Go to your room and go to bed. I've had a hard day, I'm tired and I don't want to be bothered with such nonsense.


An hour later, the father, who had had time to decompress a little, wondered if he had not reacted too strongly to his son's request.

Maybe he wanted to buy something important. So he decides to go to the boy's room.

- Are you asleep? - No, Daddy!

- Listen, I thought about it and here's the $10.00 you asked for.

- Oh thanks Dad!

- The little guy reached under his pillow and pulled out $25.00.

- The father saw the money and became irritated again.

- But why did you want $10.00? You have $25.00! What do you want to do with that money?

- It's just that... I was short of it. But now I have just enough.

- Daddy... can I buy an hour of your time? Tomorrow night, come home early. I'd love to have dinner with you!

Always take time to to be closer to the ones you love

One by one we have empty hands and if you have never had empty hands then hurry up and empty them. You will see, you will not regret it. Someone close to you needs a heart that is not cluttered to deposit its overflow of joys or sorrows; someone needs your hands to help them.  How can you give a helping hand with your hands full?

So never again say that you have nothing to share, because that nothing is everything to someone else. And when you turn around to continue your journey, oh surprise, you will find baskets full and overflowing. Don't pile them up in your attic. Hurry up and give them away so you can go back to being empty-handed.  Our world needs them.
