Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Casserole For My Friend

--by Aurelia, posted Apr 13, 2007

My girlfriend at work is going through a rough time. Both parents are sick and recently moved in with her. She has two teenage children that are involved in sports and music. So she is constantly running here and there and on demand.  

I couldn't believe my ears when she told me that she had volunteered to teach Religious Ed classes in her home on Wednesday nights for the next 6 weeks ... which happened to be the next day.  I was thinking about her on the way home that night and wondering if she was in her car on the way to some sport event or music lessons.

Then I thought that it would be nice if I made a quick dinner casserole for her family for the next night since she would be having the Religious Ed class in her home. I brought it to work in the morning and she was thrilled and thanked me many times for thinking of her and her family.  They were getting a little tired of eating fast food and pizza and it was going to be nice to eat a warm homemade dinner.
