Best cite ni. Banyak pengajaran yg kita boleh belajar darinya. Apa yg berlaku dalam cerita ni mmg benar. Cik nolie sendiri pernah mengalaminya. Cite ni cik nolie dapat mmg dalam bahasa inggeris dan cik nolie malas nak translate nanti cite jadi x besh..hehe.

One day a man saw a  old lady, stranded on the side of the road, but even in the dim light of day, he  could see she needed help. So he pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out.  His pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.
Even with the smile on  his face, she was worried. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so.  Was he going to hurt her? He didn't look safe; he looked poor and hungry.   He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He  knew how she felt. It was that chill which only fear can put in you.
He  said, 'I'm here to help you, ma'am. Why don't you wait in the car where it's  warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.'
Well, all she had was a  flat tire, but for an old lady, that was bad enough. Bryan crawled under the car  looking for a place to put the jack, skinning his knuckles a time or two. Soon  he was able to change the tire. But he had to get dirty and his hands hurt.   As he was tightening up the lug nuts, she rolled down the window and  began to talk to him. She told him that she was from St. Louis and was only just  passing through. She couldn't thank him enough for coming to her aid.   Bryan just smiled as he closed her trunk. The lady asked how much she  owed him. Any amount would have been all right with her. She already imagined  all the awful things that could have happened had he not stopped. Bryan never  thought twice about being paid. This was not a job to him. This was helping  someone in need, and God knows there were plenty, who had given him a hand in  the past. He had lived his whole life that way, and it never occurred to him to  act any other way.
He told her that if she really wanted to pay him  back, the next time she saw someone who needed help, she could give that person  the assistance they needed, and Bryan added, 'And think of me.'
He  waited until she started her car and drove off. It had been a cold and  depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the  twilight.
A f ew miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went  in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she made the last leg of  her trip home. It was a dingy looking restaurant. Outside were two old gas  pumps. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her. The waitress came over and brought  a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being  on her feet for the whole day couldn't erase. The lady noticed the waitress was  nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let the strain and aches change her  attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving  to a stranger. Then she remembered Bryan ..
After the lady finished her  meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get  change for her hundred dollar bill, but the old lady had slipped right out the  door. She was gone by the time the waitress came back. The waitress wondered  where the lady could be. Then she noticed something written on the na pkin.   There were tears in her eyes when she read what the lady wrote: 'You  don't owe me anything. I have
Been there too. Somebody once helped me out,  the way I'm helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do:  Do not let this chain of love end with you.'
Under the napkin were four  more $100 bills.
Well, there were tables to clear, sugar bowls to fill,  and people to serve, but the waitress made it through another day. That night  when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she was thinking about the   Money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known how much  she and her husband needed it? With the baby due next month, it was going to be  hard....
She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping  next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, 'Everything's  going to be all right. I love you, Bryan Anderson.'
There is an old  saying 'What goes around comes around.'
