A son took his mother to a nursing home, where he visited her from time to time. One day he was called because his mother was not feeling well

When do we ever stop to consider the adage "the saying goes around, comes around"? It is common for us to behave in ways that affect other people without fully comprehending the consequences of our choices. Fortunately, we are constantly reminded by life that we need to be a little more thoughtful.

One man's choice to place his mother in a nursing home came when he realized he couldn't care for her anymore after his father's death. Neither she nor he was very fond of the place, and he only dropped by sometimes.


His mom's health started to decline, and he received a call about it one day. She was completely unfeeling. It seemed as if she was indeed experiencing her last days.

It didn't take long for the son to get to the retirement community. He didn't waste any time getting to his mom's room; he wanted to know whether he could help.

She made very few demands, the mother told him as she stared into his eyes. Upon hearing that, he expressed his willingness to grant her last desire.
