Life and Work
Father is a hard-working man who delivers bread as a livelihood to support his wife and three children. He spent all his nights after work attending business classes, hoping to improve himself so that one day he can find a better paying job. Except on Sundays, Dad rarely eats with his family. He works and studies very hard because he wants to give his family enough money to be able to buy family needs.
Every time the family complains that dad doesn't spend enough time with them, he reasoned that he did all this for them. But he often wants to spend more time with his family.
The day arrived when the examination results were announced. With joy, Dad received at a company, and with a difference too of course! Immediately after that, he was offered a good job as a highly paid senior supervisor.
Like a dream come true, Dad is now able to give his family a little luxury living like a nice dress, delicious food, and vacation abroad.
However, family still can't see dad almost all week. He continued to work very hard, hope to be promoted to a manager position. Even, to make himself a worthy candidate for this promotion, he applied for other education at an open university.
One more time, every time his family complained that he didn't spend enough time with them, Dad again and again reasoned that he did all this for them. But he often wants to spend more time with his family.
Hard work indeed paid off and he was promoted. With great joy, she decided to hire a maid to free her mother from household duties. He also felt that their three-room flat was no longer large enough, it would be nice for his family to be able to enjoy the facilities and comfort of a condominium.
After receiving rewards from his hard work many times before, Father decided to continue his studies and work to be promoted again. The family still can't see much about him. Even, sometimes Dad has to work on Sundays to meet his clients. One more time, every time his family complained that he didn't spend enough time with them, he reasoned that he did all this for them. But he often wants to spend more time with his family.
As expected, Dad’s hard work paid off again and he bought a beautiful condominium overlooking the beach. On the first Sunday night in their new home, Father told his family that he decided not to take any more courses or pursue promotion anymore. From then on he will devote more time to his family.
But it's too bad Dad didn't wake up the next day. Father has lost so much beautiful time with family.
Being together with a family is more valuable than anything.
