you probably opened this because of the title didnt you. well it has little to do
with the title. it is better than the title. please read it.

Have a great day...... 
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 the bottom of my heart." 

As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his
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
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay
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
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
a better place - And, after all, isn't that what life is all about?! 

Now you have two choices. 

1. You can send this page on and spread a positive message. 

2. Or ignore it and pretend it never touched your heart 

The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which -- To burn
