One morning, after the man had performed the daily ritual and was walking away, the woman called him back. I just wanted you to know that the price has gone up to seventy-five cents. However, I have found that it only takes a moment to let someone know how much they have helped, or how their talents have provided just the spark the project needed.

What an inspiring story! I am an immigrant as well and came to America when I was 18 for college.
You and your husband have come a long way! I love how humble you are, Tina.
You can tell that no amount of money will go to your head, and you seem like a lovely woman with a wonderful, grounded family. Your articles and stories are always enjoyable to read, and I really enjoy that I seem to learn something new about you and your husband through every new post. Talk about wanting to give back and leave a legacy.
