A Helping Hand on Move-in Day
--by lilhappyme, posted Aug 19, 2009
I was staying with a friend of mine recently because my parents where out of town. On one of the days, my friend and I went out on an activity day, which was lots of fun and I had the chance to meet a bunch of new people.
I was talking with a few guys, and during the course of the conversation, it came up that they where from a town that I was going to move to in just one week. One of the guys was very interested in when my family and I where moving and asked if we where going to have any help moving in. He insisted on getting my information so he could help out. I thought that was quite funny but didn’t really give it much thought.
Well, sure enough, he called me the day we were moving in, and when my family arrived, there was a big group of people outside our new house. These people didn’t even know us and yet they were taking time out of their day to help a family move in!
Things like this really just shows my family and I that the kind things we do for others really can pay off in the long run or in this case pay forward. I believe that what you put out in the world always finds a way to get back to you!
Thanks a lot in advance
