I am heart broken that you have no more time for us.Yesterday was our son’s birthday and you didn’t even wish him on his special day.I would have at least been happy if you had taken time out of your so called busy schedule and called him,but you didn’t..I am taking the kids along with me to my parents place.Call me when you get time …
What does this story convey?
The value of family is what this story talks about.Family is what we have at the end of the day with us, they are the ones who support us when we are depressed, listen to us when we want someone to talk to, loves us unconditionally and are with us throughout our joy and sorrow.If Brandon had time for his family, Shelly would have been happy and loved Brandon even more.If Brandon would have been happy, he would have not yelled at Steve.If Steve would have been happy, he would have spent more time with his girlfriend who in turn would have loved him and made him happy.Always remember that your company will find a replacement for you but your family won’t.Lets not relive the ifs and woulds in our lives and start spending quality time with our family.
