I came across this and had to share it ;)

Brian invited his mother over for dinner. During the
course of the meal, Brian's mother couldn't help but
notice how beautiful Brian's roommate, Jennifer, was.
Brian's Mom had long been suspicious of the platonic
relationship between Brian and Jennifer, and this had only
made her more curious. Over the course of the evening,
while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if
there was more between Brian and Jennifer than meets
the eye. Reading his mom's thoughts, Brian volunteered, 'I
know what you must be thinking, but I assure you Jennifer
and I are just roommates.' About a week later, Jennifer
came to Brian saying, 'Ever since your mother came to
dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver
gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?' Brian
said, 'Well, I doubt it, but I'll send her an e-mail just
to be sure. So he sat down and wrote this:
__________________________________________________________

Dear Mom,
I'm not saying that you 'did' take the gravy ladle from
the house, I'm not saying that you 'did not' take the
gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been
missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Love, Brian

Several days later, Brian received an email back from his
mother that read:
____________________________________________________
Dear Son,
I'm not saying that you 'do' sleep with Jennifer, I'm not
saying that you 'do not' sleep with Jennifer. But the fact
remains that if Jennifer is sleeping in her own bed, she
would have found the gravy ladle by now.
Love, Mom

Moms...what are you to do with 'em???
Only when actions by wisdom become successful, they will be considered as wise. There always is a risk that wise decisions an deeds work out wrong - then they will be considered as foolish! (Murphy's law).
However - this parental wisdom of Brian's mother could only work out the way it did due to the love between mother and son! So stronger, far better and more divine than wisdom is love! Actions out of love won't follow the path of risk-taking, also won't automatically lead on the way to success - but it fills the heart with patience and tolerance. The outcome will contain an eternal lasting peace of mind. It brings people together in the end.

Thanks for this beautiful story, I really did enjoy!
Greetz,
Gary
