A poor couple who lived in a small village in Southern KENYA had only one son. They gave him the education they managed to afford and their son graduated as an Engineer from the nearby University..

.

Eventually, he got married to a rich girl.

.

Initially, they lived with his parents in the village. Soon the wife got tired of village life and persuaded the husband to move to the city and leave his old parents behind.

.

As time passed by the husband saw an advertisement in the newspaper about a vacancy in Juba (Sudan).

.

The Mother prayed God’s blessings for him and begged him not to forget them. He was successful and lived in Juba for years with his wife. Regularly, in the beginning, he sent money to his parents.

.

Eventually with time, he stopped and forgot that his parents ever existed. Every Sunday he went to church to pray to God.  Everytime, immediately after prayer, he always envision someone in his dream, telling him that his prayer was not accepted.

.

One day he related his story to his Pastor who advised him to go back to Kenya to visit his parents.

.

The man flew to Sudan and reached the boundary of the village. Everything had changed. He could not locate his parents’ house. He asked a young boy about the whereabouts of his parents.

.

The boy directed the man to a house and said: “In this house lives an old blind lady who lost her husband five years ago. I
also hear people saying that, she has a son who migrated to Sudan 40 years ago and never came back again.” The boy continued, “The Old lady has always been crying, longing to see her son.”  The son kept quiet and entered the home finding his mother on the
bed. He tip-toed as not to wake her up.

.

He heard the mother whispering or mumbling something. He got closer to hear her voice. This is what the mother was saying:

A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and a four-year old grandson. The old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered.

..

The family ate together nightly at the dinner table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing sight made eating rather difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon o­nto the floor. When he grasped the glass often milk spilled o­n the tablecloth.

.. 

The son and daughter-in-law became irritated with the mess. “We must do something about grandfather,” said the son. I’ve had enough of his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food o­n the floor. So the husband and wife set a small table in the corner.

..

 There, grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner at the dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a wooden bowl. Sometimes when the family glanced in grandfather’s direction, he had a tear in his eye as he ate alone. Still, the o­nly words the couple had for him were sharp admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food.

..

 The four-year-old watched it all in silence.

..

One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps o­n the floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making?” Just as sweetly, the boy responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and mama to eat your food from when I grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work.

..

 The words so struck the parents that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took grandfather’s hand and gently led him back to the family table.

..

For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason, neither

One song can spark a moment
One flower can wake a dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring

+=+

One smile begins friendship
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at the sea
One word can frame a goal

+=+

One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes all the darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom

+=+

One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care

Do you ever think that one person really doesn’t matter? Tabitha Brown proved that one person can make a difference.

..

It was 1846. Grandma Brown, as she was affectionately called, joined one of the wagon trains of adventurers hoping to start a life in America’s west. She was 62 years old, only five feet tall and weighed all of 108 pounds when well-fed. Because she was partly paralyzed, she leaned on a cane and walked with a limp.

.

Along the way, Grandma Brown showed great courage and stamina. As she crossed the American Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains, she nursed the wagon train’s sick. At one point she neared starvation herself after the caravan’s cattle were rustled off by Rogue River Indians.

.

Once they arrived in Oregon, she started an orphanage and one of the first schools in that part of the country. The so-called academy was established for all people, both rich and poor. The poor attended free while those who could afford paid a dollar a week for tuition and board.

.

As long as Grandma Brown was able, she worked to keep the institution alive. She attended to the students. She convinced would-be faculty of the need for teachers at the school. Many days found her
