AN Irish Wish .... what goes around comes comes around

I want  this back. It  DOES  work.

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 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 it's Heaven on    Earth.

It's National Friendship  Week  Send  this to everyone you  consider A   FRIEND.

Pass this  on, and brighten  some  ones  day.



I hope it   works...

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.

OK, this is what  you  have to  do.... Send this to all  of your   friends.

But - you  HAVE to send this   within 1 hour from  when you open    it!

Now.....Make A wish!! I hope  you  made  your wish!

Now then,  if you send   to:

1 person ---  your wish will  be  granted in 1  year
3 people --- 6    months

5 people --- 3   months

6  people --- 1   month

7 people --- 2    weeks

8 people --- 1  week

9  people  --- 5  days

10 people  --- 3  days

12  people ---  2  days

15 people --- 1    day

20 people --- 3  hours
If  you  delete this after you  read it,  you will have 1  year of bad   luck!

But, if  you send it  to  2 of your friends,  you will automatically have 3  years  good  luck!!!
