Food in a garbage Bag

Worth reading!!!
*I received this story from an  anonymous*
My boss drove a luxury car everyday and it was my duty to greet him and to open the gates for him, as I worked as a watchman in his villa. But he never responded back to my greetings.
One day he saw me opening the garbage bags outside the villa in search of any left over food. But, as usual he never even looked at me, it was like as if he never saw anything!
The very next day I saw a paper bag at the same place, but it was clean and the food inside was covered well. It was fresh and good food like someone had just brought it from the supermarket. I didn't bother as to where it came from, I just took the paper bag and I was so happy about it.
Every day I found this paper bag at the same place with fresh vegetables and all that we needed for home.
This became my daily routine. I was eating and sharing this food with my wife and kids. I was wondering who this fool could be! To forget his paper bag full of fresh food everyday.
One day there was a big problem in the villa and I was told that my boss has died. There were too many guests coming to the villa that day and I didn't get any food that day, so I thought that one of the guests must have taken it. But the same thing happened the second day, the third day and the fourth day. It went on like this for a few weeks and I found it difficult to provide food for my family, so I decided toask the widow of my boss for a raise in my salary or else I would quit my job as a watchman.
After I told her, she was shocked, and asked me, how come I never complained about my salary for the last two years. And why was this salary not enough for you now? I gave her so many excuses but she was never convinced!
Finally in the end, I decided to tell her the truth, I told her the entire story of the bag of groceries, and as to how it was my dailyprovision. She then asked me as to when this stopped. I told her that it had stopped after the death of her husband. And then Irealised that I stopped seeing the paper bagimmediately after the death of my boss.
Why didn't I ever think of this before?
That it was my boss who was providing this for me? I guess it was because I never thought that a person who never replied to my greetings could ever be this generous!
The woman started to cry and I told her toplease stop crying and that I was really sorry that I asked for a raise, I didn't knowthat it was her husband who was providing me with the meals.
I promised to remain a watchman and be happy to provide my service. She said to me, "I'm crying because I've finally found the 7th person my husband was giving this bag full of food to.
I knew my husband was giving 7 people everyday, I had already found the other 6 people, and all these days I was searching for the 7th person. And today I found out."From that day onwards, I started to receive the bag full of food again, but this time it was the son who brought it to my house and gave it to my hand. But whenever I thanked him, he never replied, just like his dad! One day, I told him, "THANK YOU!" in a very loud voice! He replied back to me to please not be offended when he didn't reply, because he had a hearing problem, just like his dad!
Oh May God forgive us all, for we have all, as humans, judged another person without knowing the real story behind their actions. May God forgive us all and guide us towards the right path in life..
