He had worked hard and long in life. Demanding days that led into long nights that sometimes claimed what he had in energy and spirit, so his family suffered. But he knew that all the minutes and the sweat and the energy he put into his work made his life and future better for his children. So he went on without complaint because thats what life expected of him in this country.
And now the reward came. His children were grown and intelligent and educated because of his efforts and they had their children. And so when they were off doing for their children what he had done for them, he got his due time with those small things. The little people that he had made all the sacrifice for.
So he played, and laughed and jumped and enjoyed! And some day his children would do the same with their grandchildren – and life would go on just like it always had.
