Good Morning My FRiends,

Hope you enjoy this mornings post of this serving.

  The Scar
       A little boy invited his mother to attend his 
  elementary school's first teacher-parent conference. To the 
  little boy's dismay, she said she would go. This would be 
  the first time that his classmates and teacher met his 
  mother and he was embarrassed by her appearance. Although 
  she was a beautiful woman, there was a severe scar that 
  covered nearly the entire right side of her face. The boy 
  never wanted to talk about why or how she got the scar.
       At the conference, the people were impressed by the 
  kindness and natural beauty of his mother despite the scar, 
  but the little boy was still embarrassed and hid himself 
  from everyone. He did, however, get within earshot of a 
  conversation between his mother and his teacher, and heard 
  them speaking.
       "How did you get the scar on your face?" the teacher 
       The mother replied, "When my son was a baby, he was in 
  a room that caught on fire. Everyone was too afraid to go in 
  because the fire was out of control, so I went in. As I was 
  running toward his crib, I saw a beam coming down and I 
  placed myself over him trying to shield him. I was knocked 
  unconscious but fortunately, a fireman came in and saved 
  both of us." She touched the burned side of her face. "This 
  scar will be permanent, but to this day, I have never 
  regretted doing what I did."
       At this point, the little boy came out running towards 
  his mother with tears in his eyes. He hugged her and felt an 
  overwhelming sense of the sacrifice that his mother had made 
  for him. He held her hand tightly for the rest of the day.

God Bless You All
