That night, Sue quarreled with her mother, then stormed out of the house. While enroute, she remembered that she did not have any money in her pocket, she did not even have enough coins to make a phone call home.
At the same time, she went through a noodle shop, picking up sweet fragrance, she suddenly felt very hungry. She wished for a bowl of noodles, but she had no money!
The seller saw her standing wheat faltered before the counter and asked:
– Hey little girl, you want to eat a bowl?
– But … but I do not carry money … she shyly replied.
– Okay, I’ll treat you – the seller said – come in, I will cook you a bowl.
A few minutes later the owner brought her a steaming bowl of noodles. Ate some pieces, Sue cried.
– What is it? – He asked.
– Nothing. I am just touched by your kindness! – Sue said as she wiped her tears.
– Even a stranger on the street gives me a bowl of noodles, and my mother, after a quarrel, chased me out of the house. She is cruel!!
The seller sighed:
– Girl, why did you think so? Think again. I only gave you a bowl of noodles and you felt that way. Your mother had raised you since you were little, why were you not grateful and disobeyed your mom?
Sue was really surprised after hearing that.
“Why did I not think of that? A bowl of noodles from a stranger made me feel indebted, and my mother has raised me since I was little and I have never felt so, even a little.”
On the way home, Sue thought in her head what she would say to her mother when she arrives home: “Mom, I’m sorry. I know it is my fault, please forgive me … ”
Once up the steps, Sue saw her mother worried and tired of looking for her everywhere. Upon seeing Sue, her mother gently said: “Sue, come inside honey. You are probably very hungry? I cooked rice and prepared the meal already, come eat while it is still hot …”
Can not control any longer, Sue cried in her mom’s hands.
In life, we sometimes easy to appreciate the small actions of some people around us, but for the relatives, especially parents, we see their sacrifices as a matter of natural …
Parental love and concern are the most precious gifts we have been given since birth.
Parents do not expect us to pay back for nurturing us …… but have we ever appreciated or treasure the unconditional sacrifice of our parents?
Translated from a Vietnamese story by Tina

Wow! Awesome!! Nice story!!! I liked it. God can’t be there at every home so he created mother. Respect her, love her, obey her, don’t make her sad otherwise the day won’t be nice without here. A smile in the morning on her face changes my world. It looks like I am in a different planet. I have a request please give smile to your mom and you smile too then see how your day changes 🙂 🙂
After God only parents are most valuable person.
Such an inspiring short story, I love it!
This story made me thinking about my parents and their invaluable sacrifices.. Thank you Mr.stephen. You did a good job.
God cannot be there at every home. Instead he sent his representative, MOTHER. Love her, for she is the one because of whom you’re in this earth.
Yes… Your life is incomplete without parents…
I miss you Mom….I hope you are fine with heavenly Father….
We all believe that angels do exist but how far this is true we are not sure. Parents are the real living angels in our life.
Makes sense good one …
I miss my Mom. I agree with Joan, mothers are the best thing anyone should have. I lost the best thing in my life when she passed away, but HER MEMORIES WILL REMAIN IN ME. . . I LOVE YOU MA.. ♥♥♥
We often think, or probably say, it is their responsibility, they have to do it, little do we know is a privilege.
Thanks for such a wonderful story.
Thanks for sharing that story. It really touched my heart. God bless.
Mothers are the best thing anyone should have. They understand our pain and know what we are going through. We should learn to respect and love our Mothers like the way they love us too. God bless all Mothers, Amen!
The children should appreciate what their Mother do for them and their Father. Only God knows what most parents goes through hard work and sacrifice in silence for the sake of their children. Say I love you often and thank you. God always bless you back. Please listen to your parents.
I am forever grateful 2 my parents. Thank you for sharing this story ^^
Great. Good one.
Great one. Hmmm! Thanks so much to parents.
I really felt it from my heart….
It is impossible to be grateful and unhappy at the same time.
Wow I jus felt how indebted I am to my mom and I just needed that 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
Heart touching story..
Approx 8 out of 10 can relate with Sue themselves…
Mother is next to God’s place so respect her. Just think for a while how much she had pain when she gave birth to you then you won’t get angry at her anymore.
