I love you Joe

One night when Joe was driving back home he was already quite upset because of his miserable conditions and his failure to bring up his family in prosperity and proper care. He had been unemployed since the Levis factory closed but Joe did not want to abandon his birthplace where he had buried his parents. On his way back he came across this old woman who was waiting in dismay by her car, for some one to come and help her. Her car had broken down in the middle of the road. Joe approached her with a friendly smile on his face but he could see her perplexed. Probably she thought he was going to hurt her. Joe saw that her car just had a flat tire but for an old woman even that was too much of a burden. In order to make her feel comfortable Joe asked her to go and seat in the car where it was warm and cozy. He told her his name and soon enough he had changed the tire. She couldn't thank him enough for going out of the way to help her. In order to show her gratitude she asked him how much she owed him, as she couldn't think of the misery that nature would have inflicted on her. Joe had also been spent like that with the help of others. Hence he told her if she really wanted to pay him back, then the next time she met some one in peril then she could give them a helping hand and finally he added that while helping others she can just think of him once. Though it was a cold and depressing day for him but at the end of the day he felt good after helping her.
The lady headed for a small café down the road where she halted to catch up on some food. It was a dismal and drab restaurant. A waitress came around to help her. The waitress had a sweet and an untiring smile on her face, one that a whole day's hard work couldn't wipe away from her face. The lady noticed the eight months pregnancy of the waitress and even then she was attending to every one without complain. The old lady wondered how could some one who had so less, is so giving to a stranger and at that moment she remembered Joe. When the waitress went inside to get her change from a hundred dollar bill, the lady whisked out of the café and left a note for the waitress which, "You don't owe me a thing, I've been there too. Someone once helped me out, the way I'm helping you. If you really want to pay me back, here's what you do. Don't let the chain of love end with you." Tears ran down her cheeks. The waitress went back home to her husband happy at this sudden windfall in her life. While in bed she wondered how the old lady knew that they were in dire need of financial aid for her delivery, which was due next month. She knew her husband would be highly worried and thus she turned to him and while giving him a soft kiss she whispered to him, "Everything's going to be alright, I love you Joe."
