"The greatest gift I ever had
Came from God; I call him Dad!"
The Best Gift
One of the most inspiring true stories I have come across ......was about a little boy whose father gave him a small chalkboard on which he could practise writing.
One day the little boy called out to his father asking him the spelling of the word best.The father answered him.
A few moments later he asked again,
“How do you spell kid?”
Another question followed soon after.
“How do you spell ever?”
When the little boy came to show his father what he had written .........he expected to see something like..."I am the best kid ever."
Imagine his astonishment when he saw the board on which was written......
"You are the best dad a kid can ever have."
For the father..... it was one of the best days of his life and message on the chalkboard ........the best gift ever.
In fact, he got his son another chalkboard because he wanted to hang the one with the message on the wall.....so he could see it for the rest of his life.
I am sure it is still there.
P.S: What a blessing to be able to look up to one's father!!What if, every child could have a father like the child in the story ?????
What would the world be like ?
Greetings and all good wishes to all fathers everywhere.
