Mother’s Day

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.

Nice story. Let us realise the value of the true mother , right when she is alive.
No point in showing our love to our mother after she dies.

16 Atulya April 16, 2014 at 10:22 am

Very thoughtful story. How loving is that girl who after death of her mother gave her a flower n how stupid is that man that he is sending wired flowers to his mother though she is alive, it’s good he got his mind soon.

Very nice story to understand the scarification love of our mother and motivate us to love with our own mother. When we read this story if she is living with us that is good otherwise sadness surrounding our soul

This is the first time, I visited this site and from the story, honestly I remember MOM with tearful eyes. Thanking God for Caring for my Mother, and finally thanking MOM for the Godly love she has shown.

Bless the unknown author and to you all.
