True Story
> The Milk of Human Kindness!
> 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 so 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.
> Many year's later that same 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 her case.
> After a 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 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 broad through human hearts and hands."
> There's a saying which goes something like this: Bread cast on the waters
> comes back to you. The good deed you do today may benefit you or someone you
> love at the least expected time. If you never see the deed again at least
> you will have made the world a better place - And, after all, isn't that
> what life is all about?
