Old Woman's Gifts

Old Woman's Gifts

There was a little old lady who was suffering from a degenerative eye condition that had left her nearly blind.

She had three sons, and each wanted to prove that he loved her more than the others.

Son 1 bought her an expensive Mercedes, with a chauffeur included, thinking this would surely win her approval.

Son 2 bought her a 15-room mansion, thinking this would surely be the best that any of them could offer her.

Son 3 had to do something even better, so he decided to give her his most prized possession, a parrot that he had been training for 15 years to memorize the entire Bible.

You could name any verse, and the parrot could quote it word for word

What a gift that would be!

Well, the old lady went to the first son and said;

“Son, the car is beautiful

It has everything you could ever want on it, but I don't like to go out anymore, and the chauffeur is a nuisance, so please return the car.”

Then she surprised her second son by saying;

“Son, the house is just gorgeous, but it's much for me

I only live in one room, and it's too large to clean and take care of.

I really don't need the house, but thank you anyway.”

Finally, she went to Son 3 and said;

“Son, I just want to thank you for your most thoughtful gift

That chicken was delicious.”
