Five lessons - Worth reading





>>Five (5) lessons to make you think about the way we treat people.
>>
>>
>> 1. First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.
>>
>> During my second month of college, our professor
>> gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student
>> and had breezed through the questions until I read
>> the last one:
>>
>> "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
>> Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the
>> cleaning woman several times. She was tall,
>> dark-haired and in her 50s, but how would I know her name?
>>
>> I handed in my paper, leaving the last question
>> blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if
>> the last question would count toward our quiz grade.
>>
>> "Absolutely," said the professor. "In your careers,
>> you will meet many people. All are significant. They
>> deserve your attention and care, even if all you do
>> is smile and say "hello."
>>
>> I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her
>> name was Dorothy.
>>
>> 2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain
>>
>> One night, at 11:30 P.M., an older African American
>> woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway
>> trying to endure a lashing rainstorm. Her car had
>> broken down and she desperately needed a ride.
>> Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.
>> A young white man stopped to help her, generally
>> unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960s. The man
>> took her to safety, helped her get assistance and
>> put her into a taxicab.
>>
>> She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his
>> address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a
>> knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a
>> giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A
>> special note was attached..
>>
>> It read:
>> "Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway
>> the other night. The rain drenched not only my
>> clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along.
>> Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying
>> husband's bedside just before he passed away... God
>> bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving
>> others."
>>
>> Sincerely,
>> Mrs. Nat King Cole.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> 3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those
>> who serve.
>>
>>
>> In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less,
>> a 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and
>> sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in
>> front of him.
>>
>> "How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.
>>
>> "Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
>>
>> The little boy pulled is hand out of his pocket and
>> studied the coins in it.
>>
>> "Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.
>>
>> By now more people were waiting for a table and the
>> waitress was growing impatient.
>>
>> "Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.
>>
>> The little boy again counted his coins.
>>
>> "I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.
>>
>> The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on
>> the table and walked away. The boy finished the ice
>> cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waitress
>> came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the
>> table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish,
>> were two nickels and five pennies..
>> You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had
>> to have enough left to leave her a tip.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> 4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path.
>>
>> In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a
>> roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if
>> anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the
>> king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by
>> and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the
>> King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did
>> anything about getting the stone out of the way.
>>
>> Then a peasant came along carrying a load of
>> vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the
>> peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the
>> stone to the side of the road. After much pushing
>> and straining, he finally succeeded. After the
>> peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed
>> a purse lying in the road where the boulder had
>> been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note
>> from the King indicating that the gold was for the
>> person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The
>> peasant learned what many of us never understand!
>>
>> Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve
>> our conditions.
>>
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> 5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...
>>
>> Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a
>> hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who
>> was suffering from a rare & serious disease. Her only
>> chance of recovery appeared to be a blood
>> transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had
>> miraculously survived the same disease and had
>> developed the antibodies needed to combat the
>> illness. The doctor explained the situation to her
>> little brother, and asked the little boy if he would
>> be willing to give his blood to his sister.
>>
>> I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a
>> deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will
>> save her." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in
>> bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did,
>> seeing the color returning to her cheek. Then his
>> face grew pale and his smile faded.
>>
>> He looked up at the doctor and asked with a
>> trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away".
>>
>> Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the
>> doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his
>> sister all of his blood in order to save her.
