Inspirational Story

Teen to a grown up with a heart

This teenager like most of his peers did not put himself out to help in the house.  He was quite happy to let his brother do all the work expected of both of them.  When his brother went away to college nothing changed, Joe still enjoyed his easy life and regarded himself as selfish.

Things changed when Joe went away to college and while there he got married.  Soon a baby was on the way but he pursued things that made him happy.    Household responsibilities followed.  It was shortly after his baby was born and his wife was asleep and baby was crying.  Joe picked the feeding bottle, held his baby in his arms and started   feeding  his baby.   Joe looked down and saw two big innocent trusting eyes.  He knew then that when you give love then your heart grows.
