A long time ago,there was a huge apple tree,a little boy loved to come and play around it everyday,he climbed to the treetop,ate the apples,took a nap under the shadow,he loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him,Time went by...the little boy had grown up,and he no longer played around the tree every day,One day,the boy came back to the tree and he looked sad,the tree asked the boy:come and play with me,the boy replied:i am no longer a kid, i don't play around trees any more i want toys,i need money to buy them,the tre said:sorry,but i don't have money but you can pick all my apples and sell them,so you will have money,the boy was so exited,he grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily,the boy never came back after he picked the apples,the tree was sad,One day,the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was excited,it said:come and play with me,but he said:i don't have time to play,ihave to work for my family,we need a house for shelter,can you help me?,the tree said:sorry i don't have a house,but you can chop off my branches to build your house,so the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily,the tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since,then the tree was again lonely and sad,One hot summer day,the man returned and the tree was delighted,it said:came and play with me,but he said:i am getting old,i want to go sailing to relax myself,can you give me a boat?the tree said:use my trunk to build your boat,you can sail far away and be happy,so the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat,he went sailing and never showed up for a long time,finally the man returned after many years,the tree said :sory my boy,but i don't have anything for you anymore,no more apples for you,the man replied:no problem,i don't have any teeth to bite,it said:no more trunk for you to klimb on,he said:i'm too old fot that now,the tree said i really cannot give you anthing ,the tree said with tears:the only thing left is my dying root,the boy said: i do not need much now,just a place to rest,,i'm tired after all these years,and do tree said:good!old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest,come,come sit down with me and rest,the man sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears. do you know how is this tree:the boy is you and the tree is your parent so what do you think about that? and do you gonna behave with them like that?

lot of people is really cannot understand the feeling of being a parent, parent never give up for thier kids, they will do anything as long they will see that they will be fine & happy, but children never realize what will be good for them,just they keep on thingking that thier parent put them in the prison not giving them freedom, sometimes parents strick for yhier children for thier on goo.

Very touching story. I am sure I had heard this one before, but what an awesome reminder for us all. I feel this one in itself gives an awesome story, and one we can truly learn from.
