Just goes to show what kindness can do. This just proves that our choices (good or bad) are part of a circle. Choose >-->wisely! A GLASS OF MILK One day, a poor boy who was selling goods >-->from door to door to pay his way through school, found he had only one thin >-->dime left, and he was hungry. He 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 drink of water. She thought he looked >-->hungry so brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and 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 a kindness." He said..... >-->"Then I thank you from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not >-->only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was strong also. >-->He had >-->been ready to give up and quit. Year's later that young woman became >-->critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the >-->big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. >-->Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation. When he heard the name of >-->the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he >-->rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his >-->doctor's gown he went in to see her. 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 the case. After along 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 >-->edge and the bill was sent to her room. She feared to open it, for she was >-->sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it all. Finally she >-->looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She >-->read these words..... "Paid in full with one glass of milk" (Signed) Dr. >-->Howard Kelly. Tears of joy flooded her eyes >-->as her happy heart prayed: "Thank You, God, that Your love has spread >-->abroad through human hearts and hands." Now you have two choices. >-->You can send this page on and spread a positive message. Or ignore it and >-->pretend it never touched your heart
