Once upon a time there was an old woman who lived alone in a small house in a small beautiful village. She became very ill, and always needed medical care, so she decided to travel to the city to be near the medical services. In the same street where the old woman lived the people were not friendly, but there was a very poor family that consisted of widow, three boys, 17-19 years old, and a girl almost 16 years old, that lived at the end of the street. Their house was near the cliff, even though it was very dangerous for them to live there. Since her husband died, she became alone with 4 children in a small, broken house. She was agreeing to work at anything just to have some money to buy any food for her and her children. All the people who lived in this village hated this poor family saying that this family is so bad.
Once when the old woman was walking outside seeking for some help, the wind and rain started. As she had been a distance from her house, she began to scream saying: - "Help, help, someone please help me", but no one answered her. Somebody closed the windows and others didn’t care for her. The wind and rain grew stronger and stronger that led to the uprooting of some trees. And then she fainted because of the cold, but no one thought to help her except the young boy from the end of the street, who heard her screaming and ran to help her. He helped her to walk to their old house. After the rain stopped, they took her back to her house, and they called the doctor to give her some help. The doctor talked to this mother as if she is a daughter of the old woman saying:-
ـــ “Your mother has to be in a bed for a few days, don’t leave her alone, and give her this medicine”.
After a few days, the old woman became well. The mother and the children really loved her and she became used to them and they became as a one family. When the spring came, the grandmother thanked them and returned to the village.
After one month the postman brought a letter for the poor family. The oldest son took the letter. When he read it, he screamed, “Oh mother come and see”. “What’s there?” she asked. “This is an invitation from a lover”, said the boy.” He invited us to be in the village next Saturday at ten a.m. to give us the keys to one house as a gift from anonymous”. And he looked at his mother’s face saying, “Who can make a gift like this to us?”
On Saturday morning the whole family went to the village. They were surprised when they saw the house which address was on the invitation. It was like a big castle. They knocked on the door and they were surprised again when they saw the old woman standing near the door. She invited them in saying, “Come in to your home”.
The old woman explained that for a long time she didn’t feel that she had a family. The widow and children had become as a family for her, that’s why she decided to make this gift for them. Also she told the mother that she didn’t have to worry about the cost of the university for all her children. The family traveled from the city to the village where they found a comfortable life and they lived with the old woman as a friendly family taking care of each other.
