    Very nice story to spread

    One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to pay, for his
    hungry stomach, decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.


    On the way through school, he found he had only one thin dime left and he
    was very hungry.

    However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.
    Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water.

    The woman 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."

    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.

    The woman feared opening 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."

    A SIMPLE INSPIRATION
    "To fix a broken life, use the tools of the heart."

    Kindness pays.
    this story once again proves that every act of kindness has its reaction.
