Spread Love & Kindness
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 bottom of my heart.”
As Kline Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger bodily, but his faith in God and man was also strong. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Years later that young woman Maria became critically ill. The local doctor’s were puzzled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease. Dr. Kline Kelly was called in for the discussion. 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 (Maria) 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 great effort, the battle was won. Dr. Kline Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, and then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room. Maria was 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 notice on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:
“Paid in full with one glass of milk”.
After reading that note, Maria remembered the quote which was told by her mommy when she was young.
Keep doing the activities of kindness. You never know when you might need some yourself. Spread love …you will never fall short of it in your life!
With tears she thanked Dr. Kline Kelly and from then both Maria’s family and Kline Kelly’s family have become a good friends which lasted for many generations.
