THE LONG AND…………..
Three grown sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. When they got together at the Orange Bowl on January 1, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly mother.
The oldest said: “I built a big house for our mother.”
The middle son said: “I sent her a Mercedes with a driver.”
The youngest son said: “You remember how our mother enjoys reading the Bible, but at her age she can’t see very well. So I’ve sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took elders in the church 12 years to teach him. Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the parrot recites it.”
Soon thereafter, their mother sent out her letters of thanks to her three sons.
To her oldest son, she wrote “The house you built is so huge. I live only in one room, but I have to clean the whole house.”
To her middle son, she wrote, “I am too old to travel. I stay most of the time at home so I rarely use the Mercedes. And that driver is so rude! He’s a pain!”
But to her youngest son, “The little chicken you sent was delicious!”
