Three rich brothers each wanted to do something special for their elderly mother on Mother’s Day. The first brother bought her a huge house. The second brother gave her a limousine, with a driver. The third brother remembered that his mother used to love to read the Bible, but couldn’t see well anymore, so he got her a specially trained parrot that could recite any verse from the Bible on demand.
Soon, the brothers received thank-you notes from their mother. The first son’s note said, “The house you bought me is much too big! I only live in a small part of it, but I have to clean the whole thing!” The second son got a note that said, “I rarely leave the house anymore, so I hardly use the limo you gave me. And when I do use it, the driver is so rude!” The third son’s note said, “My darling baby boy, you know just what your mother loves! The chicken was delicious!”
