    Daddy, May I Â 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

    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

    The  man saw that the boy already had money, started to get  angry

    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  replied.�

    '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 to us, those close to our hearts. Do
    remember to  share that $50 worth of your time with someone you

    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 leave
    behind will feel the loss  for the rest of their lives.�

    Please  don't break this even if you only send it to one person.
