Once upon a time in a small village, there lived a family of four. The family consisted of a mother, father, and two children – a boy and a girl. They were all very poor, but the mother was determined to make sure the children had enough to eat.
One day, the mother was boiling some potatoes for the children’s dinner. While she was stirring the pot, she realized that she had forgotten to put any salt in. She was exhausted after a long day of hard work, and so she decided to skip adding the salt, thinking that it wouldn’t make much difference.
The potatoes were boiling away, but the mother noticed that something was off. The potatoes were turning an odd shade of green. She quickly fished one out of the pot and took a taste. It was horribly bland and unappetizing.
The mother sighed and realized that she should have paid more attention. She knew that the salt was essential for making the potatoes taste good, and that if she had taken the time to add it, the potatoes would have been delicious.
The mother then turned to her children and said, “Never forget to add the salt. If you do, it will make all the difference in the world.”
From then on, the children remembered their mother’s lesson. They knew that the little things, such as adding salt, could make all the difference in the outcome.
Moral of the story: Pay attention to the little details – it can make all the difference.
