A Glass Of Milk

  1. 1. <ul><li>A Glass </li></ul><ul><li>Of Milk </li></ul><ul><li>A True Story </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>A nice poor boy once sold goods from door to door </li></ul><ul><li>To pay his way through school to learn more and more. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>One day, he found he had got only one dime. </li></ul><ul><li>And he was hungry, suffering a tough time. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>He decided he would, at the next house, ask for some simple food. </li></ul><ul><li>But he panicked when a lady opened the door – looking so good. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water – his hands shook. </li></ul><ul><li>The kind lady was so very moved by the boy’s pathetic look. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The lady thought he looked so very hungry. </li></ul><ul><li>She brought him a large glass of milk happily. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The poor boy drank the milk slowly. </li></ul><ul><li>“ How much do I owe you, </li></ul><ul><li>Lady ?” </li></ul>
  8. 8. “ You don’t owe me anything,” she replied with happiness. Mother has taught us never to accept pay for kindness.”
  9. 9. <ul><li>“ I thank you from my heart,” the boy said gratefully. </li></ul><ul><li>He wiped a tear; he was touched emotionally. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Years later, that kind lady became critically sick. </li></ul><ul><li>The local doctors were lost – they could not understand it. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>They finally sent her to the big city. </li></ul><ul><li>Her rare disease was studied so carefully. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>For consultation, they called in Dr. Howard Kelly. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning the name of the patient’s town, his heart beat strangely. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Immediately he went to her room to check and see. </li></ul><ul><li>He recognized her at once as that kind lady. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>He was determined to do his best to save her life. </li></ul><ul><li>From that day he tended to her to keep her alive. </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>After a long struggle, the battle was won. </li></ul><ul><li>Without the Doctor, it could not have been done . </li></ul>
  16. 16. <ul><li>Dr. Kelly asked for the medical bill </li></ul><ul><li>That was meant for the lady who had been ill. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>He wrote something on the edge of the bill. </li></ul><ul><li>To the lady the bill was then sent, sealed. </li></ul>
  18. 18. <ul><li>The lady feared opening the bill to read it. </li></ul><ul><li>It’d take the rest of her life to pay every bit. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>Finally she looked and something caught her eye invitingly. </li></ul><ul><li>She read, ‘Paid in full with One Glass Of Milk’ ….Signed, </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Kelly. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>Tears of joy flooded her eyes and her happy heart was really touched. </li></ul><ul><li>Kindness, love and gratitude are values that we must practise much. </li></ul>
  21. 21. The END <ul><li>May we strive on with great attention </li></ul><ul><li>To grow in Wisdom and Compassion ! </li></ul><ul><li>With Metta, </li></ul><ul><li>Bro. Oh Teik Bin </li></ul>
