Bowl of Noodles

Value- Love

Sub value-Love and Respect your parents

One night, Sue quarreled with her mother and then stormed out of the house. As she was walking, 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 crossed a noodle shop, the sweet fragrance of noodles kicked her appetite and she suddenly felt very hungry. She desperately wished for a bowl of noodles, but she had no money!

The seller saw her standing before the counter and asked:-  Hey little girl, you want to eat a bowl of noodles?

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

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

A few minutes later the owner brought her a steaming bowl of noodles.  Sue cried after she ate some.

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, chases me out of the house. She is cruel!!

The seller sighed:

Girl, why do 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?

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 have cooked rice and prepared the meal already, come eat while it is still hot.”

Unable to control any longer, Sue cried in her mom’s hands.

In life, we sometimes find it easy to appreciate the small actions of some people around us, but for our relatives, especially parents, we see their sacrifices as a matter of natural occurrence or duty.


Parental love and concern are the most precious gifts we have been given since birth.

Parents do not expect us to pay back for nurturing us …… but have we ever appreciated or treasured the unconditional sacrifice of our parents

Love and respect your parents. Without them we wouldn’t exist.
