Mother Charges Nothing (a cute little story)

A mother found under her plate one morning at breakfast a bill made out by her small son, Bradley, aged eight - Mother owes Bradley: for running errands, 25cents; for being good 10 cents; for taking music lessons 15 cents; for extras 5 cents. Total, 55 cents.

Mother smiled but made no comment. At lunch Bradley found the bill under his plate with 55 cents and another piece of paper neatly folded like the first. Opening it he read-Bradley owes Mother: for nursing him through scarlet fever, nothing; for being good to him, nothing; for clothes, shoes, and playthings, nothing; for his playroom, nothing; for his meals, nothing. Total: nothing.

Aren't our parents wonderful!!
