Fleming is the name of the 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 Fleming saved 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 , and 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 its Heaven on Earth.
MOREOVER,
May there always  be work for your hands to do;
May your purse  always hold a coin or two;

May the sun  always shine on your windowpane;
May a rainbow be  certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a  friend always be near you;
May God fill your  heart with gladness to cheer you,
and  may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead.
