The Son and his Parents

A farmer owned a fertile piece of land. He was rich but mean. He left his poor parents to fend for themselves. When they approached him for money and food, he refused. The old couple turned sadly away.

On their way back, they met a midget who gave them a large chunk of cheese and some herbs to eat. When they ate the herb and the cheese, the skies thundered and a huge storm swept through the town.

Instead of their small hut, there stood a huge mansion. The couple was amazed at this and went at once to share the good news with their son.

But they saw his fertile land was no longer there! “The storm swept away everything i had!” he cried.

The parents consoled their son and took him home with them.
