2 Beautiful Stories



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 doesn'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 walking 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

want 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.


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 went 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."
