Good Deed

So I got to hang out with Eric last night. It was a bit impromptu as he had called while I was making dinner. He wasn't feeling good. I offered for him to come over and he said I could come to him. In the end I went to him. We went down to the beach for a bit once I got there. It was a lovely evening out and it was nice to sit on a big rock and listen to the waves crash against the shore as we chatted about this and that. Mostly about Europe, but...

We got back to his place and hung out for a bit and continued to chat. Then it got late so we went to bed. This morning it was nice. We were having a great conversation. He was talking about a family friend who had been a doctor. He told me he had been traveling in the car with this fellow years ago and they came across a bit piece of wood in the middle of the road. The doctor stopped the car, got out, and moved the piece of wood to the side of the road in order to help save someone's car/life/whatever. When he got back into the car with Eric he told him, "I've done my good deed for the day."

I think that's what we all need to do these days. Do a good deed (or more) a day. The whole "pay it forward" thing. I love that idea.

God bless all those who are already doing this! Now, I cannot say that I have done my good deed for the day. I should really try to pursue this and see what I can come up with each day. It might be quite interesting. I think I'm going to go and ponder this some.

Have blessed Sunday!

  1. That is a brilliant idea and concept. It doesn't take much, just something little and thoughtful!
