A young man could no longer support his elderly mother, so he decided to carry her into the mountains near their home and abandon her.
When evening came, he told his mother that he wanted to take her out for a walk. He took her onto his back and carried her up the mountain path, further than they had ever gone before, as he wanted to be sure that she wouldn’t be able to come home again.
He became very angry when he noticed his mother was secretly dropping dried peas to mark the route, crying: “What are you doing that for?” She answered gently: “Foolish child, I’m afraid that you’ll get lost without me to guide you home.”
A mother asked her 5 year old son: “If you and Mommy got lost with no water and only two apples, what would you do?” Her son thought about it for a while and then said: “I would take a bite from each of the apples.”
His mother was disappointed, but did not scold the little boy. She asked him softly: “Could you tell Mommy why you would do that?” Tears welled up in her eyes as he replied: “Because I want to give the sweetest apple to you.”
There was once a blind girl who had nothing in her life except for a loving boyfriend.
He asked her: “On the day that you can see, will you marry me?” She answered: “Yes!” straight away.
One day she received word from the hospital that she was able to have her cornea transplant. The moment that she recovered, she discovered her boyfriend was blind. When he proposed to her again, she refused because of his blindness. As he was leaving he told her: “Take good care of my eyes.”
