The Children  You Love, You Seem To Abuse.

You don't love someone because they're beautiful. They're beautiful because you love them.

Its true you don't know what you've got until its gone, but its also true you don't know what you've been missing until it arrives!!!

I ran into a stranger as he passed by,

Oh excuse me please" was my reply.

He  said, "Please excuse me too;

I wasn't  watching for you."

We were very polite,  this stranger and I.

We went on our way  and we said good-bye.

But at home a  different story is told,

How we treat our  loved ones, young and old.

Later that day,  cooking the evening meal,

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,

God's still small voice came to me  and said,

While dealing with a stranger,  common courtesy you use,

But the children  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,

You never saw the tears that filled his little eyes."

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 'em, out by the tree.

I picked 'em because they're pretty like  you.

I knew you'd like 'em, especially the  blue."

I said, "Son, I'm very sorry for  the way I acted today;

I shouldn't have  yelled at you that way."

He said, "Oh,  Mom, that's okay. I love you anyway."

I  said, "Son, 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.

And 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 what the word

            F)ATHER (A)ND (M)OTHER (I) (L)OVE (Y)OU
