  • My good deed

    So today im talking to a friend whom is having a hard time with bills/food etc, she had been denied state assistance as she has no kids, however two days ago i bought myself and my husband 200 dollars worth of groceries, i had asked her if she had anything to eat, she said not really she was straving and has been eating top ramen, so i decided to give her some grocery items, which she took saying thank you, she also stated the staple of her meals are ramen, bread and ceral. which havent been much so i hooked her up with a 20 lb turkey, Hot Coca, pancake mix, syrup, canned foods, and a mix of frozen foods, all together like 7 bags of food, and two cases of soda. which she said she not eaten this much variety of food in a long time. i also told her anytime as me and my hubby make enough to support ourselves plus some. and to never worry about going hungry again. so the point i am trying to make is friends, look around and make sure ALL your friends are well, because you may find one phone call and an hour long conversation later that one or two of your friends may not be well, i know holidays are stressing and to my friend she said this is the best christmas gift anyone could have given her.

    so i know its not much but if you have a friend that is not well off maybe giving them a sack of food to say have you dont have to worry today, will perk them up a little bit make them feel a little better deep inside to know they have true friends to help in the time of need.

    this particular friend ive known for about 1 year, and she has had some problems off an on, but never this bad, she gave me a huge hug telling me thank you so much for being there.

    so now that this is done i just want to post to tell you guys make sure you take the time to take care of your friends!!!!!!!!!!
    Its not how we die that counts.....
    Its not how we lived that counts....
    all that matters is how we saved that one life that one time by being in the right place at the right time....

    Good job. Be good to your friends. But, make sure you're not just enabling them. My brother was a meth addict. Living on the streets. Hardest thing I ever did was turn him away when he came begging for a can of food. But thats what it took. He had to hit bottom. Now he's living with me, paying rent, and making twice as much money as I am. Generosity is good, just try and make sure its effective.

        With all the BS in this world, it's nice to hear stories like this.

            That Utah was heartwarming? It does all of us good to show compassion to those in need even if you have to gently pry information from them.
            Well done!
            Enjoy the day,

                Utah, good job there.
                I've been up and I've been down, too. While I don't beleive in fate I have come to believe the saying "What goes around, comes around".
                One year I was living in my car or depending on my sister to let me flop on her couch. A year later I was doing well and had the chance to help out a buddy who was broke so I was buying him lunch every day which was pretty much the only time he ate. A couple of years after my days of living in my car I found an old Army buddy living in his car. I let him stay at my apartment for a month until he got on his feet. Sometimes that's all anyone needs to get things moving in the right direction.
