May I borrow $25.00 from each of you? Read the story to see why I need it.
Subject: Can I Borrow $25.00???
Dear Daddy,
   Can I borrow $25?
   A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find
his 5-year
   old son waiting for him at the door.
   SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'
   DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.
   SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'
   DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a
thing?' the
   man said angrily.
   SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you
make an
   DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'
   SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.
   SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'
   The father was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that
is so you can
   borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense,
then you
   march yourself straight to your room and go to bed.
Think about why
   you are being so selfish. I don't work hard everyday for
such childish
   frivolities.' The little boy quietly went to his room and
shut the door.
   The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the
little boy's
   questions.  How dare he ask such questions only to get some
   After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and
started to
   Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that
$25.00 and
   he really didn't ask for money very often. The man went to
the door of
   the 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, maybe I was too hard on you earlier'
said the man.
   'It's been a long
   day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $25 you
asked for.'
   The little boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you
daddy!'  He
   yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some
crumpled up
   bills. The man saw 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 more money if you already have some?'
the father
   Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy
   'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?
Please come
   home early tomorrow.   I would like to
   have dinner with you.'
   The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little
son, and he
   begged for his forgiveness. It's just a short reminder to
all of you
   working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through
our fingers
   without having spent some time with those who really matter
   us, those close to our hearts.
    Do remember to share that $50 worth of your time with
someone you love.
   If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for
could easily
   replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we
   behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.
   Can I Borrow $25?
" Life is too short for drama & petty things, so kiss slowly, laugh
insanely, love truly and forgive quickly."
