Parental Love

There were three children in a family. The middle one or the second always felt, "I am not loved." They all were girls. Eldest one was entrusted with many things. The youngest one was always given the affection and special consideration.

Their parish priest visited them. As they were talking the priest asked the father, “Joseph, whom do you love more among your three children?” The middle one was so happy with the question. This is what she also wanted to know. Joseph answered, “What time?” Priest said, “Of course always.” Joseph felt bit bad about question. And he answered, “I am their father and I equal love for them but according their needs I express it. When one is sick or sad more attention is needed.”
