My Monday was awful. I felt overworked and unappreciated. This mother would want to complain but remained quiet and gloomy. She wished for her husband to be understanding and show a little consideration, pretty much like the story of the Belly and the Members.
They say nothing comes easy without hard work. Thus for others who tried but to no avail, they tend to be bitter. They act with such scornful denial, even dismissing the benefit of such fruitful labor just because it is unobtainable. Have we been like that? Let me share with you the story of The Fox and the Grapes.
I remember I would instantly behave upon realizing my mother looking daggers at me. My boys, however, are smarter than their mom. They would avoid their mother’s fierce stare as they continue their naughty acts. But as soon as they know I mean no joke, they would come to their senses and behave. Such is the story of the lion and the boar which my 20-month-old son seemed not to appreciate that much. He didn’t giggle or smile as he used to. But still, the lesson is worth sharing.
