True love does not have a happy ending.
True love has no ending.
An eight-year-old child heard her parents talking about her little brother. All she knew was that he was very sick and they had no money left. They were moving to a smaller house because they could not afford to stay in the present house after paying the doctor’s bills. Only a very costly surgery could save him now and there was no one to loan them the money.
When she heard her daddy say to her tearful mother with whispered desperation, ‘Only a miracle can save him now’, the little girl went to her bedroom and pulled her piggy bank from its hiding place in the closet. She poured all the change out on the floor and counted it carefully.
Clutching the precious piggy bank tightly, she slipped out the back door and made her way six blocks to the local drugstore. She took a quarter from her bank and placed it on the glass counter.
“And what do you want?” asked the pharmacist.
“It’s for my little brother,” the girl answered back. “He’s really very sick and I want to buy a miracle.”
“I beg your pardon?” said the pharmacist.
“His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my daddy says only a miracle can save him. So how much does a miracle cost?”
“We don’t sell miracles here, child. I’m sorry,” the pharmacist said, smiling sadly at the little girl.
“Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn’t enough, I can try and get some more. Just tell me how much it costs.”
In the shop was a well-dressed customer. He stooped down and asked the little girl, “What kind of a miracle does you brother need?”
“I don’t know,” she replied with her eyes welling up. “He’s really sick and mommy says he needs an operation. But my daddy can’t pay for it, so I have brought my savings”.
“How much do you have?” asked the man.
“One dollar and eleven cents; but I can try and get some more”, she answered barely audibly.
“Well, what a coincidence,” smiled the man, “A dollar and eleven cents – the exact price of a miracle for little brothers.”
He took her money in one hand and held her hand with the other. He said, “Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let’s see if I have the kind of miracle you need.”
That well-dressed man was Dr Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neurosurgery. The operation was completed without charge and it wasn’t long before Andrew was home again and doing well.
“That surgery,” her mom whispered, “was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost.”
The little girl smiled. She knew exactly how much the miracle cost… one dollar and eleven cents… plus the faith of a little child.
Perseverance can make miracles happen!

Have a Great Weekend!!!
I got this message just this morning and thought this is a thing that I must share…
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport.
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us.
My taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded and missed the other car by just inches!
The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.
I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy could almost ruin your car and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘Law of the Garbage Truck’
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointments.
As and when their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.
Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.
So, Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is 10 % what you make it.
90 % how you take it!
I loved the forgiveness shown by the driver and his positive attitude that fills his life with happiness.
Have a garbage-free Life!!!
