Did you hear about the Israeli woman that wanted to do something very nice for her mother? She bought her mother a brand new mattress and threw out the old one. The problem was her mother had hidden her entire life savings in the old mattress. It was approximately $1million!

When the daughter found out what she had done, she immediately and frantically went looking for the mattress. But it had already been picked up by the garbage collectors. She contacted three different landfills but searches turned up nothing.

One landfill manager said he’d increased security at the dump, but finding one mattress among 2500 tons of garbage dumped there every day would be very slim.

Every choice has consequences. All of us can look back on a decision that we wish we could have back so we could choose better.
