An old man lived alone at home. He wanted to spade his potato garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and told him the situation. “Dear Son, I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because your mother always loved planting time. I’m just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot.If you were here, all my troubles would be over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren’t in prison … Your Father.”
Shortly, the old man received the reply from his son: “For heaven’s sake, Dad, don’t dig up the garden! That’s where I buried the Guns!” The next morning, A dozen FBI agents and local police officers showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns. Confused old man wrote another note to his son telling him what have happened, and asked him what to do next. His son’s reply was:
“Go ahead and plant your potatoes, Dad, It’s the best I could do for you from here.”
Moral of the Story: No matter where you are in
the world, if you have decided to do something
deep from your heart, you can do it!
