KINDNESS Pays !


One day, a poor boy who was selling goods 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 payment 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

Years 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 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 as 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."

Hi Vicki, I read this one before and I LOVE this story! Its true to be kind to those in need - the sick, the scared, the old, etc - because sometime in your life, you will be one of those too and you will get the same kindness you give in life. I wish you a happy day my dear and so happy I met someone with such a good heart.
