What His Mother Said On Her Deathbed

After his father’s death, the son decided to leave his mother at an old age home and visited her on and off. Once he received a call from the old age home, saying, “Mom is very serious, please come to visit.”

The son rushed and found his mom in critical condition, lying on her deathbed. He asked, “Mom, what can I do for you?”

Mom replied, “Please install fans in the old age home, there are none. Also, put a fridge for better food storage because many times I slept without food.”

The son was surprised and asked, “Mom, while you were here, you never complained. Now, with only a few hours left, you are telling me all this. Why?”

Mom replied, “It’s OK, dear. I’ve managed with the heat, hunger, and pain. But when your children will send you here, I am afraid you will not be able to manage! She warned me vehemently to take care of what I leave behind and said that this is why she wants to modernize the old age home because she feared that one day, perhaps, my children would abandon me there, and I would experience what she did. Her final words were, ‘What you give is what you get.’”
