A Mother's Love


A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she


was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been


writing on. After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and


this is what it said:


For cutting the grass: $5.00

For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00

For going to the store for you: $.50

Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25

Taking out the garbage: $1.00

For getting a good report card: $5.00

For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00

Total owed: $14.75


Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the


memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over


the paper he'd written on, and this is what she wrote:


For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me:

No Charge


For all the nights that I've sat up with you, doctored and prayed for



No Charge


For all the trying times, and all the tears that you've caused through


the years:

No Charge


For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I


knew were ahead:

No Charge


For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose:

No Charge


Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is:

No Charge.


When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were


big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,


"Mom, I sure do love you." And then he took the pen and in great big


letters he wrote: "PAID IN FULL".
