It’s easy for people to forget what others said, what they did, but it is so hard for them to forget how they made them feel – that’s what Maya Angelou, a famous poet discovered!
This whole statement is true as many of us perform wonderful actions, morals and straight forward things in order to leave a constructive legacy when we are gone.
Sad to say, not everyone thinks this way. Some pave way to their selfish feelings, preferring to spend their lives on their own principles not considering how they are affecting others. A perfect example of this unwanted way is giving in to greediness.
On a real life story that never left me in peace over a long period of time, a widow, totally different from her late partner. The husband was a hard working guy who felt that because he worked hard, all he ripped was to be for himself. With this kind of mentality, he anticipated also that his honorable wife would put all aside and grant him his dying wish.Precisely, she worked out a way of maintaining her morals while granting her husband his dying wish, a very wise and brilliant idea…

“There was a man who had worked all of his life and has saved all of his money.
He was a real cheapskate when it came to his money. He loved money more than just about anything, and just before he died, he said to his wife, ‘Now listen, when I die I want you to take all my money and place it in the casket with me. Because I want to take all my money to the after life.’
So he got his wife to promise him with all her heart that when he died she would put all the money in the casket with him. When one day he died.”
“He was stretched out in the casket, the wife was sitting there in black next to their best friend. When they finished the ceremony, just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, ‘Wait a minute!’
She had a shoebox with her, she came over with the box and placed it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket and rolled it away.”
“Her friend said, ‘I hope you weren’t crazy enough to put all that money in there with that stingy old man.’
She said, ‘Yes, I promised. I’m a good Christian, I can’t lie. I promised him that I was to put that money in that casket with him.’
‘You mean to tell me you put every cent of his money in the casket with him?’
‘I sure did,’ said the wife. ‘I got it all together, put it into my account and I wrote him a check.’ ”
