The greatest joy, when you find your first salary after 62 years
Surely, many people remember how they held their first salary in their hands with a feeling of joy, delight and inspiration. Michael Doherty was no exception.
While studying at school, in the 50s the guy went to work as an apprentice. And when he received his first money, he brought them to his mother. Then she did not spend her son’s salary, and decided to postpone it for a “rainy day”.
The amount for that time was quite impressive – just over 2 pounds. Despite the fact that a glass of beer cost only 9 pence.
And now, 62 years later, while cleaning the house, Michael accidentally found this money in one of the drawers. It was an incredible feeling to hold his first paycheck in his hands again.
But Margaret Doherty, Michael’s mother, was even more delighted with her. She is already 104 years old and lives in a nursing home. It was there that the son brought his find.
The woman was moved. It turns out that all these years the money remained at home. Margaret, seeing the bills, tightly squeezed them in her hands, as if the greatest wealth. Although in fact they were like that – we remind you of one of the best periods of life.
