Awake

Dear Friends,
Regards
Good Evening to all of you ... t
ake out few minutes from ur busyschedule....
very meaningful story....
A man came home from work late, tired & irritated, to find his 5-year- old son waiting for him at the door.
Son: "Daddy, May I ask you a question"
Daddy: "Yeah sure, what it is?"
Son: "Dad, how much do you earn in an hour"
Daddy: "That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing? "That man said angrily
Son: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how muchdo you earn in an hour? "
Daddy: "I make Rs. 500 an hour"Oh", the little boy replied, with his head down. Looking up, he said, Dad, may I please borrow Rs.300?"
His father was furious, "if the only reason you askedthat is so you can borrow some money to buy a sillytoy or other nonsense, then march yourself to your room and go to bed.The little boy quietly went to his room and shut thedoor.The man sat down and started to get even angrierabout 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 calmeddown, and started to think: May be there was somethinghe really needed to buy with that Rs. 300 and hereally didn't ask for money very often!" The man went to the door of 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, may be I was too hard on you earlier", said the man,It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation onyou. Here's the Rs.300 you asked for
"The little boy sat straight up, smiling "oh! Thankyou dad!" He yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled somecrippled up notes.The man, seeing 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 money if youalready had some?" the father grumbled.
Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," thelittle boy replied.
"Daddy I have Rs. 500 now.
Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home earlytomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you"
The moral of this story:It's just a short reminder to all of you working sohard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingerswithout having spent some time with those who reallymatter to us, those close to our hearts.If we die tomorrow, the company that we are workingfor could easily replace us in a matter of days. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel theloss for the rest of their lives. And come to thinkof it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family and friends
