One Sunday, I went to the boys’ room and saw my Big Bunso counting his savings. “Wow, you’ve got plenty of savings, my son. What will you buy or do with your money?” was my question.
My young man looked up at me and said in a timid tone, “Nothing mama. I just want to save a lot until I got so many money. I do not want to spend them. Counting my savings makes me happy.”
This did not please Momi Berlin. Though I am proud that my son knows how to save, I told him the story of The Miser and His Gold. I hope the story would teach him a lesson just like it taught the miser.
