A debt for A noodle

A Debt for a Noodle Bowl

I hope I never get tired of the night sky, of thunderstorms of watching cream make galaxies. And, I hope I never grow to be someone who can no longer see the small beautiful things.

The debt that can never be repaid. This a short story on how to appreciate the things that your parents do to you. No matter how small it is, we need to appreciate.

That night, Sue quarreled with her mother, then stormed out of the house. While en route, she remembered that she did not have any money in her pocket, she did not even have enough coins to make a phone call home.

At the same time, she went through a noodle shop, picking up a sweet fragrance, she suddenly felt very hungry. She wished for a bowl of noodles, but she had no money!

The seller saw her standing wheat faltered before the counter and asked:

Hey little girl, you want to eat a bowl?

But … but I do not carry money … she shyly replied.

Okay, I’ll treat you – the seller said – come in, I will cook you a bowl.

A few minutes later the owner brought her a steaming bowl of noodles. Ate some pieces, Sue cried.

What is it? – He asked.

Nothing. I am just touched by your kindness! – Sue said as she wiped her tears.

Even a stranger on the street gives me a bowl of noodles, and my mother, after a quarrel, chased me out of the house. She is cruel!!

The seller sighed:

Girl, why did you think so? Think again. I only gave you a bowl of noodles and you felt that way. Your mother had raised you since you were little, why were you not grateful and disobeyed your mom?

The debt that can never be repaid.


Sue was really surprised after hearing that.

“Why did I not think of that? A bowl of noodles from a stranger made me feel indebted, and my mother has raised me since I was little and I have never felt so, even a little.”

On the way home, Sue thought in her head what she would say to her mother when she arrives home: “Mom, I’m sorry. I know it is my fault, please forgive me … ”

Once up the steps,

Sue saw her mother worried and tired of looking for her everywhere. Upon seeing Sue, her mother gently said: “Sue, come inside honey. You are probably very hungry? I cooked rice and prepared the meal already, come eat while it is still hot …”

Can not control any longer, Sue cried in her mom’s hands.

In life, we sometimes easy to appreciate the small actions of some people around us, but for the relatives, especially parents, we see their sacrifices as a matter of natural …

There are a lot of things that we take for granted especially when we are in the heat of the moment.

Storming out or simply not caring about our relatives especially our parents is easy for us to do,

We always think that they are giving us a hard time. But, have you ever think of giving them a chance?

Try not to be critical with them. Understand them more than your friends.  Most of us will say that we are close to our friends compared to our relatives.

It is because we treat them as people who are always there and we don’t enjoy their company. Realize that they are people. Open your hearts and minds to what family can do to you.

Your family is gift from God. Appreciate them more than ever.
