THE BOY WHO GAVE MORE

I received this forwarded text message a few days ago and I just have to share it with everyone...

A 10 year old boy went to an ice cream shop and was eyeing a nice looking cone. He asked how much a cone cost. Waiter said "Fifteen Pesos". The boy started counting how much he had in his wallet. Then he looked at the small cup beside the cone and asked how much a small cup costs. Waiter said "Twelve Pesos". The boy again looked at his coins and asked for a small cup. In no time he finished his ice cream, paid the bill and left. When the waiter came to clear the table, he picked up the empty cup...his usual tired and bored facade turned into a surprised smile. The boy left "Three Pesos" as tip for him. His day suddenly turned meaningful and worth remembering.

Lesson we get here? Try to give something to everyone out of whatever little you have!
