About a week ago there was a knock on the door.
Fred and Mary were standing at our front door.
When I opened the door, Mary blurted out..."WE heard Judy had surgery so we can to help."
They had brought a hot dish and a cake.
WE invited them in. They had no idea what surgery Judy had, but they wanted to help us.
Judy and I, 2 years ago, Helped them out when things were tough. It was meals, wood for the stove and
we had gathered other volunteers to help also, and got them through the winter. Including clearing snow from the driveway and side walks. (Fred had had shoulder surgery)
"You helped us so much that we feel we had to do something to re-pay you."
"You don't OWE us anything. WE helped because you needed help and we wanted to help.
You don't owe us a thing, but if you are here just to help us, then thank you."
Judy is doing very well. So we put Fred and Mary onto another family that needs some help.
WE paid it forward...and it was coming back to us!
Remember, The help you give may come back to you, only from a different direction!
WE put on this holiday dinner for a family who's bread winner was injured and could not work.
