A group of young boys was passing by a fruit garden as they were hiking.
On their way, they saw a pair of ripped shoes and a faded color shirt and worn-out pants besides a tree.
Three of the boys laughed and pointed at the clothes and said who would wear that?
They made fun a lot and one of them said: “Let’s have some fun today.”
The other boy said: “I think it belongs to a fruit picker labor.”
The third boy laughed hard and said: “Oh my God, these must be his best clothes and he changed into something worst then these!”
The first boy said: “Let’s take his clothes and hide behind a tree and see if he cries, that would be a great laugh.”
The second boy said: “Let’s leave a frog in his shoes. That would be hilarious.”
The fourth boy was listening to all their conversations and smiled and said: “Do you know what would be more fun?”
All three boys were listening carefully.
Forth boy continued: “Seems like these shoes are the same size as mine so I could leave my shoes for him and wear his; just to go home and if you like we can hide behind a tree and watch if he gets happy?”
The first boy who was embarrassed by his thinking compare to his friend’s fabulous idea; said: “I have a little money with me, we can leave it in your shoes for him too.”
The second and third boy said together: “We have money too.”
All four boys left their money in the forth boy’s shoes and hid behind a tree and waited. A middle-aged skinny man with severe sunburn came by the tree.
He noticed that his shoes were missing and saw the new pair of shoes, tears came in his eyes. He grabbed the shoes and saw that there was money in the shoes. He burst into cry and looked at the sky and said: “God I never doubt that you always watch over our shoulders.”
