Can I have an Apple?

A lovely little boy was holding two apples with both hands.  His mother came in and softly asked her little boy with a smile:

My sweetie, could you give your mom one of your two apples?

The boy looked up as his mom for some seconds, then he suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mom tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.

Then the little boy handed one of his bitten apples to his mom and said:

Mommy, here you are.  This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgment.  Give others the privilege to explain themselves.  What you see may not be the reality.  Never conclude for others.
