What wonderful acts of kindness by the garage owner, and you! I think sometimes you just have to trust in life that all will be well. Thanks for sharing.
I agree worry almost never helps anyone.
That is awesome and just goes to prove that you get back what you put out in the world.I totally believe in the concept of 'karma' :)
Me too. There has to be a balance.
I absolutely believe in doing good for others. What a wonderful gesture of the mechanic, and even bigger gesture from you and your wife to return that kind of blessing to someone else. Life is hard on everyone but that doesn't mean we shouldn't do what we can for others whenever possible.My parents always taught me to do things for people because we care and because its the right thing to do and most importantly never to expect anything in return. Fantastic story and post, thanks for sharing ;)
This is a great way to live and something I strive for myself. My mom taught me the same things.
That's a great story and it is awesome when you run into random acts of kindness. I have experienced quite a few myself. And I believe the good (or bad) you do to others return to you somehow. Obviously your balance was in your favor. :) Good for you.
I agree, I am by no means close to a perfect person, but I try to live with empathy and it has served me well over the years.
A terrific story of how kindness produces kindness.
Thank you and I agree.
Aww this brought tears to my eyes. How awfully nice of that man, and you!
Glad it touched you, it did the same for us.
That's great. You paid it forward. I think this is your best post so far, and you'll write many good posts and stories and books in the future.Love,Janie
Thank you and I can only hope this is true, but I will always work to be better. :)
Brandon, what a wonderful story. First of all, I'm so glad your wife was okay - what a terrifying ordeal that must have been! After all that happens on the news and all of the killing and death and backstabbing you read about in the world, it's nice to get some affirmation that there are some good people out there. Good for you for spreading the good karma.
Yeah it was great, like you said it is easy to forget there are awesome people out there. That is why I love this blog hop. It is a good way to remember the good in the world.
This is such a cool story. Holidays can be amazing times. It's people like this that make us realize what life is truly about. I'm so happy you and your wife share this experience and received such a lovely gift of kindness, Brandon.
I agree, it all becomes worth it when we get to see that there is good in people.
Playing it forward--kindness received leads to kindness given. Great story!
This is an awesome story! Great post.www.modernworld4.blogspot.com
That's a touching story, bro. Now, what's the # and address of this mechanic?just kiddingI'd rather hear this kind of story than what's typically on the news any day.
Me too, we need to hear more of the good in the world.
Love that story. The natural high you got from giving, compared to the icky feeling you'd have had by looking the other way and keeping your money, is something to think about. At least, it got me thinking about it anyway. BTW I saw your book pop up on an Amazon email for sci-fi/fantasy releases. Cool beans!
IT does feel good to give, it seems almost more natural than keeping things to yourself.That is cool, it seems to be steadily growing I am glad those that have read it are enjoying it.
