One boy went to a manager in a nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career planning. Later that day the manager went to see his boss. He told him that he deeply admired him for being a creative talent3. He gave the surprised boss the last extra ribbon and asked him to find somebody else to honor.
That night the boss went home to his 14yearold son. He told the boy what had happened and said， “I want to honor you， son. My days are really busy and when I come home I don’t pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I shout at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your bedroom being a mess， but somehow tonight， I just want to let you know that you do make a difference to me. Besides your mother， you are the most important person in my life. You’re a great kid and I love you！”
Hearing this， the boy started to cry and couldn’t stop. He looked up at his father and said through his tears， “I was planning on leaving home tomorrow， Dad， because I didn’t think you loved me. Now I don’t need to.”
