about this story

There once was a man who worked way to hard and when he finally decided to take a break he picked up a book and read about deserts. He was so moved that he decided to go see one for himself. When he got there he walked for miles and miles when he finally came to rest beneath a tree. As he was sitting underneath that tree a leaf fell on his lap, and then he realized something. He realized that he had forgotten his roots, where he came from and what he was because he was too wrapped up in his work. So he called his boss and told him that he was going to take a trip home to see his family and his boss said.
"About time! You've worked here for seven years and never once even called in sick!"
That made the man realize just how much he had truly missed in the past few years. So he got got on the next plane to his home town, and when he got there his mother gave him a warm embrace. The man smiled and promised himself that he would never, ever again forget his roots and to remind him he still has that book with that same leaf inside of it.
