After spending a weekend away with my adult son, Iwas so impressed by his generous heart that I senthim this letter.
I want to thank you for teaching me a very___36___ lesson in life by the great example you ___37__. When we were eating at that café inBondi and a person who had ___38___ his hamburger didn’t have enough money to pay for it,without any ___39___, you went over and put the ___40___ $2 into his hand.
When we were leaving, you ___41___ threw a five-cent coin onto the pavement and said___42___ like, “Some kid will really enjoy ___43___ this.”
Last week, a young man ___44___ me in the line at a petrol station didn’t have ___45___money to pay for his petrol. I asked the money collector, “How much ___46___ is he?” She toldme he had meant to put $15 of petrol in his car ___47___ he had been looking at the wronggauge(计量表) and had put in 15 ___48___, which came to just over ___49___. That is an easymistake ___50___ both gauges run fast.
Something made me think of you and ___51___ you did that night at the café in Bondi. Ihanded the man $6. He was so ___52___ and said, “But why would you do this for me?” I justsmiled as I thought of you.
Thank you, son, for teaching me that “it’s ___53___ to give than receive”. Now when I see afive-cent coin on the ___54___ and want to pick it up, I think of you and leave it ___55___,just in case some kid will get a kick out of finding it.
Love always, Mum
