    Thumbs up Scottish Blessing

    Here is a little story I thought I'd share with you. It's true, and something you can learn from. Hope ya'll enjoy!

    His name was Fleming, and he was a poor Scottish farmer.
    One day, while trying to make a living for his family, he heard a cry for help coming from a nearby bog.
    He dropped his tools and ran to the bog.
    There, mired to his waist in black muck, was a terrified boy, screaming and struggling to free himself.
    Farmer Flemingsaved the lad from what could have been a slow and terrifying death.
    The next day, a fancy carriage pulled up to the Scotsman's sparse surroundings.

    An elegantly dressed nobleman stepped out and introduced himself as the father of the boy Farmer Fleming had saved.
    "I want to repay you," said the nobleman.
    "You saved my son's life."
    "No, I can't accept payment for what I did," the Scottish farmer replied waving off the offer.
    At that moment, the farmer's own son came to the door of the family hovel.
    "Is that your son?" the nobleman asked.
    "Yes," the farmer replied proudly.
    "I'll make you a deal. Let me provide him with the level of education my
    own son will enjoy. If the lad is anything like his father, he'll no doubt
    grow to be a man we both will be proud of."
    And that he did.
    Farmer Fleming's son attended the very best schools and in time, graduated from St. Mary's Hospital Medical School in London.
    Went on to become known throughout the world as the noted Sir Alexander Fleming, the discoverer of Penicillin.

    Years afterward, the same nobleman's son who was saved from the bog was
    stricken with pneumonia.
    What saved his life this time? Penicillin.
    The name of the nobleman? Lord Randolph Churchill. His son's name?
    Sir Winston Churchill.

    Someone once said: What goes around comes around.


    Work like you don't need the money.



    Love like you've never been hurt.



    Dance like nobody's watching.



    Sing like nobody's listening.



    Live like it's Heaven on Earth.

    That story seriously made my day, haha.

    That's a very interesting piece of history, but just to make sure it is true right?
    Dreams come true, but nightmares do too.

    Life isn't a game, it's just a referal to the time you exist on this playground called Earth.

    yeah, not to doubt you or something, but I am planning to tell the story to my friends and act all smart, so just wondering where you got the story from

    but even this story alone is very intriguing

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart
