2 BEAUTIFUL STORIES TO SHARE WITH EVERYONE

Here are two very beautiful stories emailed to my by my friend Pauline. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did:


There was once this guy who is very much in love with his girl. This


romantic guy folded 1,000 pieces of paper cranes as a gift to his


girl.




Although, at that time he was just a small fry in his company, his


future didn't seem too bright, they were very happy together. Until


one day, his girl told him she was going to Paris and will never come


back. She also told him that she cannot visualize any future for the


both of them, so they went their own ways there and then...




Heartbroken, the guy agreed. But when he regained his confidence, he


worked hard day and night, slogging his body and mind just to make


something out of himself.




Finally with all the hard work and the help of friends, this guy had


set up his own company .




You never fail until you stop trying. One rainy day, while this guy


was driving, he saw an elderly couple sharing an umbrella in the rain


walk ing to some destination. Even with the umbrella, they were still


drenched. It didn't take him long to realize they were his girl's


parents.




With a heart in getting back at them, he drove slowly beside the


couple, wanting them to spot him in his luxury sedan. He wanted them


to know that he wasn't the same any more; he had his own company, car,


condo, etc. He made it! What he saw next confused him, the couple was


walking towards a cemetery, and so he got out of his car and


followed...and he saw his girl, a photograph of her smiling sweetly as


ever at him from her tombstone and he saw his paper cranes right


beside her...




Her parents saw him. He asked them why this had happened. They


explained, she did not leave for France at all. She was ill with


cancer. She had believed that he will make it someday, but she did not


want to be his obstacle... therefore she had chosen to leave him.


Just because
someone doesn't love you the way you wa nt them to,


doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have. She had wanted


her parents to put his paper cranes beside her, because, if the day


comes when fate brings him to her again...he can take some of those


back with him...




Once you have loved, you will always love. For what's in your mind may


escape but what's in your heart will remain forever.




The guy just wept...The worst way to miss someone is to be sitting


right beside her knowing you can't have her, see her or be with her


ever again.........hope you understand.




Find time to realize that there is one person who means so much to


you, for you might wake up one morning losing that person who you


thought meant nothing to you.


KINDNESS Pays !


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 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 we nt 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."
