Five (5) lessons to make you think about the way we
1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady. During my
second month of college, our professor gave us a pop
quiz. I was a conscientious student and had breezed
through the questions until I read the last one: 'What
is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?'
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the
cleaning woman several times.. She was tall, dark-haired
and in her 50's, but how would I know her name? I handed
in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Just
before class ended, one student asked if the last
question would count toward our quiz grade.
'Absolutely,' said the professor.. 'In your careers you
will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve
your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and
say 'hello. 'I've never
forgotten that lesson. I also learned her
name was Dorothy.
2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain
One night, at 11:3 0 p.m., an older African
American woman was standing on
the side of an Alabama highway trying to endure a
lashing rainstorm. Her car had
broken down and she desperately needed a ride.
Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next
car. A young white man stopped to help her, generally
unheard of in those conflict-filled 60s.. The man
took her to safety, helped her get assistance and
put her into a taxicab. She seemed to be in a big
hurry, but wrote down his address and thanked him. Seven
days went by and a knock came
on the man's door. To his surprise, a giant console
color TV was delivered to his home.
A special note was attached.
It read: 'Thank you so much for assisting me on
the highway the other night. The rain drenched not only
my clothes, but also my
spirits. Then you came along. Because of you, I was able
to make it to my dying
husband's bedside just before he passed away... God
bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving
'Sincerely, Mrs. Nat King Cole.
3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those who
serve. In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much
less, a 10-year-old boy
entered a hotel coffee shop and sat at a table. A
waitress put a glass of water in front of him.
'How much is an ice cream sundae?' he asked.
'Fifty cents,' replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled is hand out of his pocket
and studied the coins in it.'
Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?' he
inquired. By now more people
were waiting for a table and the
waitress was growing impatient.
'Thirty-five cents,' she brusquely replied. The
little boy again counted his coins.
'I'll have the plain ice cream,' he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill
on the table and walked away.
The boy finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and
left. When the waitress came
back, she began to cry as she wiped down the
table. There, placed neatly beside the empty
dish, were two nickels and five pennies.. You see, he
couldn't have the sundae, because he had
to have enough left to leave her a tip.
4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path.
In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on
way. Then he hid himself and watched to see if
anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the
king's wealthiest merchants and courtiers came
byand simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the
King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did
anything about getting the stone out of the way. Then a
peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon
approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his
burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the
road. After much pushing and
straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant
picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed
a purse lying in the road where the boulder had
The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the
King indicating that the gold was for the person who
removed the boulder from the roadway.
The peasant learned what many of us never understand!
Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our
5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...
Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a
hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz
who was suffering from a rare
& serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared
to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother,
who had miraculously survived the same disease and had
developed the antibodies needed to combat the
illness. The doctor explained the situation to
her little brother, and asked the little boy if he would
be willing to give his blood to his sister.
I saw him hesitate for only a moment before
taking a deep breath and
saying, 'Yes I'll do it if it will save her.' As the
transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister
and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to
her cheek. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded.
He looked up at the doctor and asked with a
trembling voice, 'Will I start to die right away?'.
Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the
doctor; he thought he was going to have to give
his sister ALL of his blood in
order to save her and he had chosen to save her anyway.
