"Paid In Full"

For all you Mother’s

This is early for Mother’s Day

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she
was fixing supper, and he 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 cutting the grass: $5.00
For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00 For going to the store for you:
.50 Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: .25 Taking out
the garbage: $1.00 For getting a good report card: $5.00 For cleaning up
and raking the yard: $2.00 Total owed: $14.75

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the
memories flashing through her mind.
She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this
is what she wrote:

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me: No
Charge.

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you, doctored and prayed for
you: No Charge.

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve 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 wiping your nose: 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
big tears in his eyes, and he looked straight at his mother and said,
“Mom, I sure do love you”. And then he took the pen and in great big
letters he wrote:
“PAID IN FULL”
