A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'

DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.

SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily.

SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'

The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for such childish frivolities.'

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and started to think:

Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and he really didn't ask for money very often The man went to the door of the little boy's room and opened the door.

'Are you asleep, son?' He asked.

'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy.

'I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you asked for.'

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled.

'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied.

'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.'

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

This is always a timely and pertinent message, and serves as a reminder as to what truly does matter in life.¿ Thanks for the reminder!

What is love? Love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone but still getting weak knees when they walk into a room and smile at you. :)

Awww what a story. It just goes to show how people can get so involved with their work, they forget to spend time with the people that matter most.

SweetS,

¿

¿Some of us are so lucky to have Dad's that really took the time to make us a priority. I was very blessed much like you were. My Dad was my best friend. His family was # 1 over everything.

¿

I feel for your loss.

niceguy, great blog. I realy don't think alot of men really realize what a huge impact they have on a child's life whether negative or positive. I still think of my father as superhuman to this very day. (yes, I was and still am a daddy's girl:) Being driven and successful is deffinately a great model for a child to follow but the simplest of times spent together with "dad" just doing nothing makes a child feel invinsable as if he or she is the most important person in the world if only for one moment. When I was six years old my father used to sit with me for just a few minutes every day after work no matter how bad his day was he would grab his cigarette, take my hand and say "come on daddy's girl, lets sit on the front porch." I remember he would have a distant look in his eye, look over at me and say things like "people are nuts aren't they?" and I would nod yes and smile...he would reply "yeah you're right." April 1st was the anniversary of my father's death . To me, those moments were and are still worth more than any amount of money.
