Where it happened: wwwwwwww
My little girl came up to me in the kitchen one evening whilst I was
preparing dinner. She handed me a piece of paper she had been writing
After drying my hands on the towel, I read it, and this is what it said:
For washing the car $5.00
For making my own bed this week $1.00
Going to the provision shop $0.50
Playing with little sis $0.25
Taking out the rubbish $1.00
Getting a good report card $5.00
And for sweeping the common corridor $2.00
I looked at her standing there expecting payment. A thousand memories
flashed through my mind. So I picked up the pen and turning the paper
this is what I wrote:
For 9 months I carried you, growing inside me No Charge
For the nights I sat up with you, doctored and prayed for you No Charge
For the toys, food and clothes and wiping your nose No Charge
When you add it all up, the full cost of my love No Charge
Well, when she finished reading, she had great big tears in her eyes.
She looked at me and said, “Mummy, I love you”. Then she took the pen
great big letters, she wrote …….. “PAID IN FULL”.
WHEN YOU ADD IT ALL UP, THE COST OF REAL LOVE IS NO CHARGE!
