LONG TIME AGO


long time ago, there was a huge
apple tree. A
little boy loved to come and play
around it
everyday. He climbed to the treetop,
ate the
apples, and took a nap under the
shadow.
He loved the tree and the tree loved to
play with
him.

Time went by, the little boy had
grown up and he
no longer played around the tree every
day.
One day, the boy came back to the
tree and he
looked sad.
“Come and play with me”, the tree
asked the boy.
Boy: “I am no longer a kid, I do not
play around
trees anymore” the boy replied.
“I want toys. I need money to buy
them.”

Tree:
“Sorry, but I do not have money, but
you
can pick all my apples and sell them.
So, you will
have money.”
The boy was so excited. He grabbed
all the
apples on the tree and left happily.
The boy never
came back after he picked the apples.
The tree
was sad.

One day, the boy who now turned into
a man
returned and the tree was excited.

“Come and play with me” the tree
said.
“I do not have time to play. I have to
work for my
family. We need a house for shelter.
Can you help
me?”
“Sorry, but I do not have any house.
But you can
chop off my branches to build your
house.
” So the man cut all the branches of
the tree and
left happily.
The tree was glad to see him happy
but the man
never came back since then.
The tree was again lonely and sad.

One hot summer day, the man
returned and the
tree was delighted.
“Come and play with me!” the tree
said.
“I am getting old. I want to go sailing
to relax
myself. Can you give me a boat?”
said the man.
“Use my trunk to build your boat. You
can sail far
away and be happy.”
So the man cut the tree trunk to make
a boat. He
went sailing and never showed up for
a long time.

Finally, the man returned after many
years.
“Sorry, my boy. But I do not have
anything for
you anymore. No more apples for
you”, the tree
said.
“No problem, I do not have any teeth
to bite” the
man replied.

Tree : “No more trunk for you to climb
on.”
“I am too old for that now” the man
said.
“I really cannot give you anything, the
only thing
left is my dying roots,” the tree said
with tears.

“I do not need much now, just a place
to rest.
Iam tired after all these years,” the
man replied.
“Good! Old tree roots are the best
place to lean
on and rest, come sit down with me
and rest.”
The man sat down and the tree was
glad and
smiled with tears.

This is a story of everyone. The tree is
like our
parents. When we were young, we
loved to play
with our Mum and Dad.
When we grow up, we leave them;
only come to
them when we need something or
when we are in
trouble.
No matter what, parents will always
be there and
give everything they could just to
make you
happy.
You may think the boy is cruel to the
tree, but
that is how all of us treat our parents.
We take them for granted; we don’t
appreciate all
they do for us, until it’s too late.

~ Moral ~
Treat your parents with loving care….
For you will
know their value, when you see their
empty
chair…
We never know the love of our parents
for us; till
we have become parents.
True …we realize the many small
sacrifices
parents make during their day today’s
life, after
we become parents
