Mother’s Day

Morning Story and Dilbert

May 2, 2014

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 and I don’t have enough money.”

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.

  1. We tend to miss the true moments of life. We all should be driving to the ones we love.

    Call your Mom or better yet go and see her. It was late for me and I feel her loneliness every Mother’s day.

    We should always value the people God has placed in our lives because they are there for a purpose. God can connect you to somebody that will make you to value some areas in your life that you need value most. Thanks for sharing my friend. More of His blessings!!!!
