Good Deeds Follow You


A poor Scottish farmer. name Flemming .

One day, trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby boy. He dropped his tools , ran to the boy.

There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified bo…y, screaming and struggling to free himself.
Farmer Fleming saved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.

The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman’s sparse surroundings. An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the saved boy .

‘I want to repay you,’ said the nobleman. ‘You saved my son’s life.’

‘No, I can’t accept payment for what I did,’ the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer.
At that moment, the farmer’s own son came to the door of the family hovel.

‘Is that your son?’ the nobleman asked.

‘Yes,’ the farmer replied proudly.

‘I’ll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my own son will enjoy If the lad is anything like his father, he’ll no doubt grow to be a man we both will be proud of.’ And that he did.

Farmer Fleming’s son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School in London, and went on to become known throughout the world as the noted
Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

Years afterward, the same nobleman’s son who was saved was stricken with pneumonia.

What saved his life this time? Penicillin.

The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill .. His son’s name?

Sir Winston Churchill.

Someone once said:
What (good) goes around, comes around.

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody’s watch

Sing like nobody’s listening.

Live like it’s Heaven

May there always be work you enjoy ;

May your purse always hold a thousand or two;

May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;

May the hand of a friend always be near you;

May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. Ameen
