APPRECIATION

CHILDHOOD INSPIRATION

Submitted by Anonymous

Years back, when I was studying for elementary course, we had a very elderly lady staying alone as a neighbor. She was totally helpless, though financially sound. Out of fear, she never appointed any paid support.

One day, I offered to help her out in all of her errands, purchases and general upkeep of her house, but on one condition: that she did not corrupt me with payment in cash or kind.

The happiness I saw in her face and the affection and care she bestowed on me still linger in my mind. Though I am almost her age now, I still volunteer to serve others in need; to bring a smile to their faces. The elderly lady I helped during my childhood forever inspired me.
