Inspirational Stories: The Smart Mother And The Little Girl’s story about the burnt toast

Story No 1:

The Smart Mother

For the mothers among us, and their children:-

Mr Kitahara is a famous Japanese TV satire movie star cum director.

He has recently won another international film award. A few years ago his mother passed away. He went home to attend her funeral. He never quite liked his mother, because she kept asking him for money. Should he missed a payment, his mother would call him up and scold him. On top of that, the more famous he became the more money his mother demanded from him.

When he arrived at the funeral, he still cried very miserably. He felt that he did not fulfill his duties as a son to take care of his mother during her living years. At the end of the service, as he was about to leave, his brother handed him a small parcel saying, “Mother asked me to pass this to you.”  Carefully he opened the parcel. He found within, a savings passbook and a letter. The savings account was under his name with a balance of tens of million Yen.

In the letter his mother wrote,

‘Dear son, among all my children, you are the one whom got me most worried. You were never an academic, a true spendthrift and over generous to your friends. When I knew that you were going to work in Tokyo, I was worried that one day you would become a bankrupt. That is why I insist on you sending me money every month. This is to give you a drive to earn more money, at the same time help you to save. Here is all your money, I did not have to spend a cent, for your brother has taken care of me very well. Now take the money and spend wisely.”  After reading the letter he broke down with tears and sorrow
The richest man in TaiWan, late Mr.Wang Yoong Ching once said:
The dollar that you earned does not belong to you. The dollar you saved is genuinely yours.

Morale of the story:-
The cause of a future that cannot be sustained financially is not due to income that is too low, it is expenses that are overly high.


Story No 2:

“Burnt Toast”
 A beautiful story to ponder upon­ if everyone in this world learn to accept others mistakes and forgive each other­ life will move smoothly.

A story by a girl :-

“When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast food after a long, hard day at work.

On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite!
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said: ‘Baby, I love burned toast.’
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, “Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she’s real tired. And besides-a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!’ You know, life is full of imperfect things…..and imperfect people. I’m not the best housekeeper or cook.’

What I’ve learned over the years is that learning to accept each other’s faults – and choosing to celebrate each other’s differences – is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.

And that’s my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of GOD. Because in the end, He’s the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where burnt toast isn’t a deal-breaker!  We could extend this to any relationship in fact – as understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!! ”
“Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket but into your own.” See through God’s eyes and feel through God’s heart And you will appreciate the value of every soul including yourself.
“God bless you all richly!”
