The Main Thing

Don't Forget The Main Thing!

Author unknown; contributed by Roni

 

 A woman bought a parrot from a pet store. The bird was chattering away in the store, but was quiet at home.

The next day she returned; the bird still wasn't talking. "How about a ladder? Parrots love ladders. A happy parrot is a talkative parrot." The woman bought a ladder and left. But the next day, she was back. 

"Does your parrot have a swing? No? Well, that's the problem. Once he starts swinging, he'll talk up a storm." The woman reluctantly bought a swing and left. 

When she walked into the store the next day, her countenance had changed. "The parrot died," she said. The pet store owner was shocked. "I'm so sorry. Tell me, did he ever say
a word?" he asked. "Yes, right before he died," the woman replied. "In a weak voice, he
asked me, 'Don't they sell any food at that pet store?"

Sometimes people forget the main thing. Do you know what your real priorities in life are?
