Edison’s Mother

One day Thomas Edison came home and gave a paper to his mother. He told his mother that his teacher gave this paper to him and said, “Give this to your mother.”

His mother opened it and read the paper. After reading paper her eyes filled with tears. Thomas asked his mother about what was written in the paper.

She read the whole letter in loud voice to her son, “Your son is a genius. This school it too small for him and we don’t have enough resources and good teachers to train him. Please teach him yourself.”

After many years, Edison’s mother died and he had become one of the greatest inventors in the world. One day while Thomas was looking into old family things he saw a folded paper in the corner of his desk drawer.

He took it and open it.

He read the paper. “Your son is mentally ill and we won’t let him come to school anymore.” was written on the paper.

It was the same paper which was given to him by his teacher in school to give to his mother.

After reading that Edison cried for hours and wrote in his dairy, “Thomas Alva Edison was an addled (mentally ill) child that, by a hero mother, became the genius of the century.”

Moral: –

One should Never Give up.

We need to be confident in ourselves and move ahead in life with Positive Attitude and Hard work.

With many peaceful blessings

I am an author and broadcaster. In January 2013 I very nearly died but our Father God healed me and I am still alive to tell the tale! I have written/edited several books about the Bible, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. My future ministry is focused on outreach. I do not just want to preach to the converted but to many people 'out there' who do not know Jesus as their Saviour and who are in great need of His love and compassion. Praise be to the Lord our God, our Heavenly Father
