Paid In Full For A Glass Of Milk


  One day, a poor boy who was
begging from door to door to feed his
hungry stomach
decided he would ask for a meal at the next
house. However, he lost his nerve when a
lovely young woman opened the door, 
Instead of a meal, he asked for a glass of water, 
the woman thought he looked hungry, 
so she brought him a
large glass of milk, He drank it slowly,

& then asked how much do I owe you? 
you don't owe me anything, she replied. 
Mother has taught us never to accept pay for
kindness, she said, then I thank you from my

Years later, that young woman became

critically ill, the local doctors are battling because
They couldn't cure her, they finally sent her to
the big city, where they called specialists to study
her rare illness, Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the
consultation, When he heard the name of the
town where she came from, a strange light filled his
eyes, Immediately, he rose and went down the
hall of the hospital to her room, He recognized her at
once, he went back to the consultation room
determined to do his best to save her life, From
that day, he gave special attention to that
case, After long struggle, the battle was won!

Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final
bill to him for approval, He looked at it, then wrote

something on the bill, It was sent to her room, the
woman feared opening it, for she was sure it
will take the rest of her life to pay for it all.
Finally she looked, & noticed something was written at 
the edge of the note, paid for in full for a glass of
milk. Tears filled her eyes as she immediately

Every form of kindness you sow

doesn't bounce, it reproduces itself, Not
necessarily before your eyes, but it always does, It is
good to be good, Always be nice for it always comes back
to you.

Think about it!
