The Girl Who Cared

There is a story about a beautiful & young 8 year-old girl.

The girl entered a small but busy cafe and took a seat in front of the cashier.

The waiter came immediately and put a glass of water in front of her.

“How much is a mixed ice cream cup?” the little girl asked.

“1 dollar and 75 cents” replied the waiter.

The little girl pulled her hand out of purse and studied the coins she had. “Well, how much is a plain ice cream?” she inquired.

By now, more people were waiting for a table and the waiter was growing very impatient. “1 dollar and 50 cents,” he impatiently replied.

The little girl again counted her coins. “I’ll have the plain ice cream,” she said.

The waiter brought the ice cream, put the bill on the table and walked away. The girl finished the ice cream, paid the cashier and left. When the waiter came back, a tear or two came out of his eyes.

As he wiped down the table, there placed neatly beside the empty dish were 25 cents. You see, she couldn’t have the mixed ice cream because she had to have enough money to leave him a tip!!

Moral: The pleasure of being selfless and thoughtful is better than the taste of being selfish. Think a little less about yourself and a little more about others.

    This little girl behaviour is similar to another little daughter of my friend named Asiya who equally is thoughtful about others and remain to share whatever she owned with others. Such little girls grow to live an examplanary life and legacy to remember.

    Interaction of two generous souls: One sacrificed her coin, and the other, responded to this innocent gesture with a powerful flow of emotion, which made him cry. Not usual for waiters who always welcome tips.

    If people could follow this little girl’s example , then the world would have been a better place to live in.
