Three sons left home, said goodbye to their dear single mother, went out on their own and prospered. Then one day, revisiting together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly Mother on her birthday. They all loved her dearly, and each wanted more than anything to give her something she'd truly love.
The first said, "I built a mansion for our mother. 26 rooms and a huge back yard filled with trees and flowers. A house that is fit for royalty, and will give her all the space she never had."
The second said, "Well I bought her a luxury car, and not just for her to drive, no. It comes with a private driver that'll take her anywhere she wants to go. She'll never need to drive again, and he can help her carry heavy things back to the house."
"Gerald," she wrote to the second son, "I am too old to travel any more. My eyesight isn't what it used to be. I stay most of the time at home, so I rarely use the car my dear. And I must say the driver is quite rude!"
"Dearest Donald," she wrote to her third son, "you were the only one to have the good sense to know what your Mother likes. That chicken was delicious!"
