A Mother's Love

Written by Biranchi Padhi

One evening a boy came up to his mother in kitchen 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 brushing Travera (four wheeler):$5.00

For cleaning up my room: $1.00

For taking out garbage: $1.00

For watering the plants: $2.00

For getting top marks in entire school: $8.00


Discount: $2.75


Total owed: $14.25


Well, his mother stared at him standing there, and the boy could imagine the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen,

turned over the paper he'd written on, and her reply just blown away his mind, her reply was something like this:

For nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: NO CHARGE

For all the nights that i have sat up with you, medicoed and prayed for you: NO CHARGE

For all the the tears you have 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 cleaning off your diper: 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 tears rolling out from his eyes, and he looked

straight at his mother and said, “MOM , I love you to the infinity." And then he took the pen and in big bold letter he wrote:"PAYMENT DONE!!"


MORAL: Nothing can be compared to unwavering affection of a mother. The greatest super power that mankind has is: A MOTHER.
