三个离家闯天下成功的儿子聚在一起,讨论各自送给老妈的礼物。
 大儿子说:『我为妈妈盖了一栋大房子。』
 二儿子说:『我送给她一辆宾士,还附司机。』
 三儿子说:『我打败你们了,你们知道妈妈非常喜欢读圣经,你们也知道她的眼睛不好. 我送她的是一只会朗诵全本圣经的棕色鹦鹉,总共动用二十名修道院的修士,花了整整十二年的时间来教这只鹦鹉,我还得每年都要奉献十万元,他们才肯训练牠。不过 这是值得的,妈妈只要说出章节名称,那只鹦鹉就会开始背诵圣经给她听。』

 

故事还没结束喔

过了不久,他们就收到妈妈寄出的谢卡
给大儿子的写道:『Charles,你盖的房子好大。我只住在其中一个房间,但是我却得打扫整栋房子。』

给二儿子的写说:『James,我太老!没办法外出旅行。我整天都待在家里,所以我从来没坐过那台宾士。而且,那个司机好粗鲁,好没礼貌!』
她给三儿子的信柔和许多:『最亲爱的Thomas,你是三个儿子中唯一知道妈妈喜欢什么的,谢谢你送的那只鸡,非常好吃。

therose.jpgSome say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower, and You its only seed.
It's the heart, afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance.
It's the dream, afraid of waking, that never takes a chance.
It's the one who won't be taken, who cannot seem to give.
And the soul, afraid of dyin', that never learns to live.
When the night has been too lonely,
and the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows,
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes
The Rose.
