What do you think of this story? It is a true story that I heard both from my wife and from her mother. My wifeâs grandmother, Mary, lived in a poor third world country in the early half of last century. One night she had a dream of a middle-aged woman in colorful clothes came to her, crying, asking her to save her life. Mary is disturbed by the dream. So she got up early and sat outside her house, watching people passing by on the street. There are men and women, but there is not a woman in colorful clothes coming to her asking for help. In the afternoon, Mary saw a man with a cow. The cow has large colorful spots on her body. So Mary stopped the man and asked where they are heading. The man said he is going to the butcher to have the cow slaughtered. Maryâs family has some money, so she insisted they buy the cow, and they did. They fed and took care of the cow until it died several years later. I personally find this story very moving.
