~~~~~~~~Very Emotional Heart Touching Short Story~~~~~~~~
(I realize this is a little long, but is worth reading for all of us)
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.”

Rules of Chocolate Easter Eggs and Easter Bunnies
If you get melted chocolate eggs and bunnies all over your hands,
you're eating it too slowly.
Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries
all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
That goes for Chocolate Easer eggs, and Easter Bunnies.
Diet tip: Eat an Easter egg before each meal.
It'll take the edge off your appetite, and that way you'll eat less.
If you can't eat all your chocolate you get in your Easter Basket,
it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate eggs & bunnies,
what's wrong with you?
If calories are an issue, store your chocolate eggs on top of the fridge.
Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate eggs
to protect themselves.
Money talks. Chocolate bunnies and eggs sing.
Chocolate bunnies & chocolate eggs have many preservatives.
Preservatives make you look younger.
The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate eggs home from the store in a hot car.
The solution: Eat the eggs in the car park.

Believing in the Easter Bunny is like saying
you believe in an over sized purple bunny,
pooping colorful eggs all over your lawn.
Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter Sunday.
Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs at Thanksgiving.
The Easter Bunny made his list and checked it not once but twice.
And unfortunately, he found that you've been naughty not nice.
Now, I knew it was bad news when his ears started to droop.
But he still left you special brightly-wrapped bunny poop!!!

Giving of An Apple
A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her Mom came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile:
“Sweetie, could you give your Mom one of your two apples?”
The girl looked up at her Mom for some seconds,
then she suddenly took a quick bite of one apple, and then quickly of the other.
The Mom felt the smile on her face freeze.
She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her Mom, and said:
"Mommy, here you are. This is the sweeter one."
