What do you think the story is about?

The story "Thank You Ma'am" is about a boy who tries to pick-pocket Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones but she catches him. She takes him back to her house, tells him to wash his face, give him food, some money and most importantly her advice. She teaches/tells him that she wasn't perfect either in her childhood and doesn't make it right for Roger to do the same. When the boy leaves he is so grateful and he couldn't ever mutter a thank you or any thankful gesture of gratitude.
