My mother knows many stories. She told me this story when I was a child. I still remember it so vividly.
The story is as follows……….
“There was a handsome young man. He had a very loving mother. They were only two survivors after the death of his father.
The mother was a very hard working woman. She worked very hard to raise her only son. She provided Everything for his growth and development. He could study and obtain college level education.
After sometime he fell in love with a pretty girl. They became madly in love with each other. They gave promises to each other. The girl asked her boyfriend, “What can you do to prove your love for me?” He replied that he can do anything. He can even bring stars from the sky and lay down at her feet.
The girl was very cunning and cruel. She told him to bring heart of his mother. He was very sad. But he was totally blind after this damsel. He had to prove his love. He thought that everything is fair in war and love.
He went home and killed his own mother. He removed heart of his mother in his hands. He carried it hurriedly to his girlfriend. While he was walking fast, he stumbled upon a stone and fell.
Immediately, he heard a familiar whisper in his ears. That voice was similar to his mother’s voice. He got startled and began to look everywhere. He couldn’t see any human beings.
He looked carefully and realised that his mother’s heart was speaking. That heart lovingly asked him, “son, did you hurt yourself?” When he heard his mother’s voice he began to cry out with great remorse. He wanted his mother back but it was too late, it was too late.
That is the heart of mother. Mother’s heart always beats for her children. However wrong they may have been, her love doesn’t change. My mother has immense love for me. Even at the slightest of cough or sneeze she will immediately instruct me to take some medication.
Dear friends, value your loved ones when they are with you before they go on the journey from where people don’t return.
This story is inspired by a commandment given in the Holy Bible:
Ephesians 6:1-3 NASBS
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  Honor YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER (which is the first commandment with a promise),  SO THAT IT MAY BE WELL WITH YOU, AND THAT YOU MAY LIVE LONG ON THE EARTH.
