Lucky Mother

A young mother be­lieved that it was very wrong to waste any food when there were so many hun­gry peo­ple in the world. One evening, she was giv­ing her small daugh­ter her tea be­fore putting her to bed. First she gave her a slice of fresh brown bread and but­ter, but the child said that she did not want it like that. She asked for some jam on her bread as well. Her mother looked at her for a few se­conds and then said, When I was a small girl like you, Ada, I was al­ways given ei­ther bread and but­ter, or bread and jam, but never bread with but­ter and jam. Ada looked at her mother for a few mo­ments with pity in her eyes and then said to her kindly, aren’t you pleased that you’ve come to live with us now?
