心灵鸡汤

分类: 心灵鸡汤

      One day, a poor boy who was trying to pay his way through school by selling goods door to door found that he only had one dime left. He was hungry so he decided to beg for a meal at the next house.

      某一天,为了半工半读完成学业,一个贫穷的小男孩挨家挨户地推销商品。他摸遍全身,发现只有一角钱了。由于饿得受不了,于是他决定向下一户人家讨口饭吃。

 

  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 she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”

然而,当一位美丽的年轻女子打开房门的时候,这个小男孩却有点不知所措了。他没有要饭,只乞求给他一口水喝。这位女子看到他饥饿的样子,就倒了一大杯牛奶给他。男孩慢慢地喝完牛奶,问道:“我应该付多少钱?”

 

  “You don't owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught me never to accept pay for a kindness.” He said, “Then I thank you from the bottom of my heart.” As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but it also increased his faith in God and the human race. He was about to give up and quit before this point.

年轻女子微笑着回答:“一分钱也不用付。我妈妈教导我,施以爱心,不图回报。”男孩说:“那么,就请接受我衷心的感谢吧!”说完,霍华德.凯利就离开了这户人家。他不仅感觉自己身体舒服些了,而且他对上帝和人类也更有信心。其实在这之前,他差不多都打算放弃自己了。

 

  Years later the young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where specialists can be called in to study her rare disease. Dr. Howard Kelly, now famous 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 through the hospital hall into her room.

  数年之后,那位女子得了重病,当地医生对此束手无策。最后,她被转到大城市医治,专家们被召集来会诊治疗她这罕见的病。现在已经是大名鼎鼎的霍华德.凯利医生也参加了医疗方案的制定。当他听到病人来自的那个城镇的名字时,一个不同寻常的念头霎间闪过他的脑际。他马上起身跑过医院走廊,来到她的病房。

 

  Dressed in his doctor's gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room and determined to do his best to save her life. From that day on, he gave special attention to her case.

身穿医生袍的凯利医生走进病房,一眼就认出了恩人。回到会诊室后,他决心一定要竭尽所能来治好她的病。从那天起,他就特别关注这个病例。

 

  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 and then wrote something on the side. The bill was sent to her room. She was afraid to open it because she was positive that it would take the rest of her life to pay it off. Finally she looked, and the note on the side of the bill caught her attention. She read these words...

经过长时间的艰苦努力,终于治好了她。凯利医生要求把医药费单据送到他那里核准,他看了一下,在单据的旁边写了一些东西。当医药费单据送到她的病房时,她不敢看。因为她确信,如果要付清治病的费用,她的余生都得拼命工作才行。最后,她还是看了看单据,旁边的那行小字引起了她的注意,她不禁轻声读了出来:

 

  “Paid in full with a glass of milk.”

  (Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly

  “医药费已付:一杯牛奶。”

(签名)霍华德·凯利医生

 

  Tears of joy flooded her eyes as she prayed silently:“ Thank You, God. Your love has spread through human hearts and hands.”

  喜悦的泪水溢出了她的眼睛,她默默地祈祷着:“谢谢你,上帝,你的爱已通过人类的心灵和双手传播了。”
