Mother's Day The Best Gift Short Story

One more best story on occasion of mothers day, when is the mothers day, mothers day in 2009
Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered.
Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their
elderly mother. The first said, "I built a big house for our mother."

The second said," I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."

The third smiled and said, "I've got you, both beat. You know how Mom enjoys
the Bible, and you know she can't see very well. I sent her a parrot that
can recite the entire Bible. It took 20 monks in a monastery 12 years to
teach him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000.00 a year for 10 years,
but it was worth it. Mom just has to name the chapter and verse, and the
parrot will recite it.

"Soon thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks:
"Milton," she wrote the first son, "the house you built is so huge. I live
in only one room, but have to clean the whole house."

"Marvin," she wrote to another, "I am too old to travel. I stay home all the
time, so I never use the Mercedes, and the driver is so rude!"

"Dearest Melvin," she wrote to her third son, "You were the only son to have
the good sense to know what your mother likes, that chicken was delicious."

Contemplative Questions

Here is a set of questions that would provoke you and put you through some soul searching. They are not about religion nor about ethics. They are merely about you.

They are not meant to serve as solutions nor are they meant to lead you anywhere. These questions are meant to serve as tools to discovering yourself.

1) Do you perceive the Presence of a benevolent force guiding, protecting and shaping your life? What name do you give that Presence? When did you best feel this Presence?

2) What is your opinion of God? Is your opinion drawn from religion, books, parents and or your personal experience of life?

3) Do you pray? Do they get answered? How often?

4) Do you think it is possible to relate to the Divine? What relationship would you opt?

5) Here is a story for you - Two fierce enemies once did a penance to placate god and receive boons vying with each other. God appeared to the first man and asked what he wanted. He said "give me twice of whatever you give my enemy". Then God appeared to the second one. Even before God could say anything he asked, "God, would you please tell me what my enemy asked for? On knowing his prayer request, he said, "then God, blind me in one eye."
Now what would you wish for yourself, your best friend and your worst enemy if God gave you a chance?

6) Have you ever experienced a coincidence or chance that seems to have involved so many people and factors that you can't stop wondering if a mastermind was behind this operation? If yes, do you savour the experience often and have you shared it with someone close to you?
