An old man and a wooden bowl


Frail old man went to live with his son , daughter in law and four year old grandson .The old man's hands trembled , his eyesight was blurred , and his step was staggering .
The family were eating together at the table .But old people shaking hands and vision loss were the reason for difficulties during meals ...Pea were falling from the bucket to the floor.
When he took the cup, milk would be spilled on the tablecloth.
Son and daughter in law  were angry at old man." We have to do something with my father ," said the son .I'm sick of spilling milk , noisy eating , and food on the floor ." Therefore, the husband and wife set a small table in the corner . There's grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner .After the grandfather broke plate or two , his food was served in a wooden bowl.
When the family glanced in grandfather's direction, sometimes in his eye was a tear.All of this four-year- watched in silence .

Once before supper , the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the floor . He asked the child sweetly , "What are you doing ? " Also cute , boy responded, " Oh , I make a bowl for you and Mama , from which you will eat when I grow up . " Four-year then smiled and continued to work .

These words so struck the parents that were left speechless.

Tears began to flow down the streams of their cheeks .Although they did not uttered a single word , they knew what they must to do . That evening the husband took Grandfather 's hand and gently led him back to the family table . All other days grandfather ate every meal with the family . And for some reason , it seemed that neither husband nor wife did not care when he dropped a fork , when the milk spilled , or the tablecloth soiled.
