On the Wall

A weary mother returned from the store, Lugging groceries through the kitchen door.

Awaiting her arrival was her eight-year-old son, eager to relate what his younger brother had done.

"While I was out playing and Dad was on a call, T.J. took his crayons and wrote on
the wall!  It's on the new paper you just hung in the den. I told him you'd be mad at having to do it again."

She let out a moan and furrowed her brow. "Where is your little brother right now?"
She emptied her arms and with a
purposeful stride, she marched to his
closet where he had gone to hide.

She called his full name as she entered his room.  He trembled with fear -- he knew that meant doom!

For the next ten minutes, she ranted and raved about the expensive wallpaper and
how she had slaved.

Lamenting all the work it would take to repair, She condemned his actions and
total lack of care.

The more she scolded, the madder she got. She then stomped from his room, totally distraught!

She headed for the den to confirm her fears. When she saw the wall, her eyes flooded with tears.

The message she read pierced her soul
with a dart.  It said, "I love Mommy," surrounded by a heart.

Well, the wallpaper remained, just as she found it, With an empty picture frame
hung to surround it.

A reminder to her, and indeed to all..

Take time to read
the handwriting on the wall !!!
