Default Out Of The Goodness Of Your Heart

When was the last time you did something for someone "out of the goodness of your heart?"


Our next door 78-year-old neighbor has always had family cut her grass, but this year in the spring, the grass was getting high and nobody was cutting it.

One day I saw her outside trying to cut it. By the time I got outside, she had already gone in the house (she was out only a couple of minutes) So, I went ahead and cut her grass.
When I was almost done she came out to thank me and to pay me. I told her that's OK-- I don't need any money, having her as a neighbor was payment enough. She told me that her family would cut her grass for $10.00, but this year wanted $20.00.

Again she is a 78-year-old living on SS, she has no money. Her family isn't mad at me, but doesn't understand WHY I would do it for nothing (It takes about an hour and a half to do.) I told them WHY NOT maybe GOD will take care of me when I get old.

You just might change a person, by doing something out of the "goodness of your heart."

So, when was the last time you did something nice and thoughtful for someone else?
Giving someone a ride, baking cookies or just visiting?
A lie doesn't become truth
wrong doesn't become right
evil doesn't become good
just because it is accepted by a majority

My dog and I walk in all the local parks. We specialize in finding stuff that's been left behind and returning it to its rightful owner, most often sports equipment and other dogs. My dog is very interesting: he will not leave an unattended dog or child until he's matched them up with the person responsible for them.

I always give my spare change or a dollar to homeless people. And also I give out bottled water to them in the hot weather.

Being that I am anonymous here I can say this kind of stuff and not ruin my reputation of being mean and nasty.

Today I donated several large boxes of things to the Salvation Army. Not my number one charity, but there are certain things they take that other charities won't.

In the next couple of weeks, I'm also going to make another donation of clothes and books to one of the veteran's hospitals in the NYC area. That's something I do regularly, and also volunteer to work charity benefit functions.

Each year before Christmas, a friend and I always bought clothes, toys and electronics and brought them to an orphanage in Manhattan. Amazingly, a couple of years ago, the orphanage stopped accepting these donations so we went back to our other tradition of answering Santa Claus letters at the main post office near Penn Station and sending the children gifts directly.

I also have a habit of buying things for friends that can't afford them. Recently I bought tickets to a rock show by a Beatle who shall remain nameless, as I often do when he comes around. A good friend of mine really wanted to see him but his mountain of medical bills prevented him from going. I bought him tickets in the first row of a section so he could go without having to stand up to see, which he can't do. I've done that for various people several times this year.

I just nailed Mrs. Trumbull
