A Good Deed Gets Rewarded


thA heartwarming story.
Sitting by the window of her convent, Sister Barbara opened a letter from home one evening.  Inside the letter was a $100 bill her parents had sent.  Sister Barbara smiled at the gesture.
 
As she read the letter by the window, she noticed a shabbily dressed stranger leaning against the lamp post below.  Quickly, she wrote, “Don’t despair. – Sister Barbara”, on a piece of paper, wrapped the $100 bill in it, got the man’s attention and tossed it out the window to him. 
The stranger picked it up, and with a puzzled expression and a tip of his hat, went off down the street.
The next day, Sister Barbara was told that a man was at her door, insisting on seeing her. She went down, and found the stranger waiting. Without a word, he handed her a huge wad of $100 bills.   th-1
“What’s this?” she asked.
“That’s the $8,000 you have coming Sister”, he replied. “Don’t Despair paid
80-to-1″.
Thanks, Carla.
