How much do you really love your mom? Would you be willing to stand up for her in a situation like this? Read this deep story and think hard if this has already happened, and what you did in response.
A son took his old mother to a restaurant for an evening dinner.
Mother being very old and weak, while eating, dropped food on her clothes.
Others diners watched her in disgust while her son was calm.
After she finished eating, her son who was not at all embarrassed, quietly took her to the wash room, wiped the food particles, removed the stains, combed her hair and fitted her spectacles firmly. When they came out, the entire restaurant was watching them in dead silence, not able to grasp how someone could embarrass themselves publicly like that.
The son settled the bill and started walking out with his mother.
At that time, an old man amongst the diners called out to the son and asked him, “Don’t you think you have left something behind?”
The son replied, “No sir, I haven’t”.
The old man retorted, “Yes, you have! You left a lesson for every son and hope for every mother”.
The restaurant went silent.
If both he and his mother were not embarrassed to go out in public and spend a nice dinner together, why was it anyone else’s business to be involved in? I’m a little surprised that it was only this one man who stood up and said something about the actions of the other patrons in the restaurant. Have you ever been in this situation?
Doing what is right isn’t always easy, and it can be even more of a challenge when others are openly disapproving. Never take your loved ones for granted!
