As we arrived at her House later, she said, ‘I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.’ I agreed.
‘How was your Dinner Date?’ asked My Wife when I got Home. ‘Very Nice. Much more so than I could have imagined,’ I answered.
A few days later, my Mother died of a Massive Heart Attack.
It happened so suddenly that I didn’t have Time to do anything for her. Sometime later, I received an Envelope with a Copy of a Restaurant Receipt from the same place Mother and I had dined.
An Attached Note Said:
‘I paid this Bill in Advance.
I wasn’t sure that I could be there;
But nevertheless, I paid for Two Plates.
One for You and the Other for Your Wife.
You will never know what that Night meant for Me.
I Love You, My Son.’

Nothing in Life is more important than God and your Family.
Give them the Time they deserve, because these Things cannot be Put Off till ‘Some Other Time.’
