三個離家闖天下成功的兒子聚在一起,討論各自送給老媽的禮物。
 大兒子說:『我為媽媽蓋了一棟大房子。』
 二兒子說:『我送給她一輛賓士,還附司機。』
 三兒子說:『我打敗你們了,你們知道媽媽非常喜歡讀聖經,你們也知道她的眼睛不好. 我送她的是一隻會朗誦全本聖經的棕色鸚鵡,總共動用二十名修道院的修士,花了整整十二年的時間來教這隻鸚鵡,我還得每年都要奉獻十萬元,他們才肯訓練牠。不過 這是值得的,媽媽只要說出章節名稱,那隻鸚鵡就會開始背誦聖經給她聽。』

 

故事還沒結束喔

過了不久,他們就收到媽媽寄出的謝卡
給大兒子的寫道:『Charles,你蓋的房子好大。我只住在其中一個房間,但是我卻得打掃整棟房子。』

給二兒子的寫說:『James,我太老!沒辦法外出旅行。我整天都待在家裡,所以我從來沒坐過那台賓士。而且,那個司機好粗魯,好沒禮貌!』
她給三兒子的信柔和許多:『最親愛的Thomas,你是三個兒子中唯一知道媽媽喜歡什麼的,謝謝你送的那隻雞,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.
