Today something beautiful and incredible happened to me at a grocery store ...... I'm going to use it as a tip for the future. I had $14 worth of stuff in my basket when I tried to check out.
Oh dear! My checkbook was gone. I asked to checker to please cancel my purchase - that I had no money because my checkbook was missing. She said she was just putting it "on hold" so I could go to my vehicle to look for it while she checked other people. The woman behind me in line said, "Pass it on". I didn't have any idea what she was talking about so I started to leave. The checker called, "Here's your stuff. It's paid for". I still had no idea what was going on. I stood and gaped.
The checker smiled and nodded at the young woman behind me. That wosman said again, "Pass it on. Next time you bail somebody else out. You'll soon have the opportunity. Next time pass it on".
I said, "God bless you" and she said, "He does, He does everyday. Pass it on". This sure isn't a household tip but Isn't it a beautiful way to live?

Hi Nancy,I think that you were touched by one of "God's Angels" Something like this has happened to me about 8 years ago
.I went to the drugstore in my hubby's truck,we had the worst snow fall in years.Well his truck got stuck in the drugstores parking lot.I couldn't budge it.I parked in an area that had no snow but there was a patch of ice and my wheels were just spinning.My son tried pushing nothing was working.
A very nice young man who seemed to come from nowhere asked if we needed help.He said he just had to run into the store for a moment and would be right out.He came out and tied a rope to the back of the truck and onto his truck and pulled us right out.He went back into the store and I followed him back in and I went up to him and offered him money for helping us out.He looked at the money,smiled and said,Oh No it doesn't work like that! The next time you see someone who needs a hand you help them out.
I was taken back by the kindness of this nice young man he was in his early twenties,I'll never forget this act of kindness for the rest of my life.
I think he was one of "Gods Angels" also.Are they really Angels? I don't know.I just know that I was truly touched and grateful to this young man.God Bless you Nancy for all the kindness that you show others.

A couple of weeks ago, at Wal-Mart, my husband stepped OFF of a curb and went down.  He is a BIG man, and I didn't know how he was going to get up.  People came from all different ways to help; but they were mostly female, and couldn't help.  Out of the blue, this BIG man walked up and said in a very loud voice "I'LL GET HIM!!  And he did.....picked him up like a bag of potatoes!!!  Thank God for people like those that came to our rescue!!

Very nice stories.  I had something similar happen many many years ago.  My children were young and I was taking my youngest to the Pediatric Group several towns away and we had been having trouble with our vehicle.  It was fairly new, but kept conking out without warning every so often and they could not find out what the problem was.  I was driving through the next town and all of a sudden it stopped.  Two young men came to my rescue and had me start it, they pushed it and it started up.  Wanted to give them money, but they would not take it.

Years before that when my first born was a baby my husband stayed home with him and I went to Church.  He was going to go when I returned.  On the way home I got a flat tire.  Another young man stopped and changed the tire for me. He would not take any money either.  Said he wished that if something like that happened to his wife that someone would do the same for her.

God's angels are all around.  Thank God.

I love to hear stories like this.  It proves that there are still many good people in the world.  Right now, I am trying to be the "helper" and hoping that when and if I need help, someone will be there to help me.

I live on a street filled with "ANGELS" Whenever one of us needs something we are always there to help one another.I used to host most of our "Neighbor Parties" as one of the little ones on the street called them,now I just help with cooking.I had bypass surgery with some complications and I was really grounded for a little over a yearWhen I was in the hospital everyone on this street took turns cooking for the guys while I was in the hospital,I was in a little over three weeks.I can't tell you how overwelmed I was by "My Angels" Sadly we lost three of our elders this past year.They are all greatly missed.

Debbie, I believe in the Golden Rule and I KNOW you will receive help if you need it in the future. My Dad has lived his life like this, and he and my Mom live a great distance away from we 6 children. But there's always someone in town that pops in on them at the right time, to come to their aid. The good you do today will come back to you multiplied in the future.

I guess I was brought up this way.  My mom used to do the same thing and I know it does come back.  I used to shovel snow for
my neighbor.  Before she moved (to a smaller home) she told me that she was always thankful for my help and that she used to
do the same thing for others when she was younger.  So, as long as I am able, I will continue.

GRANA  here;
 "
DO UNTO OTHERS.......... is quite clear about how we should act towards other people  & not  just to st getvpaid or receive favors in return
If each of us follows this golden  rule ofor life  it will spread out w/ so many pople feeling greatful & happy that  they wil each, turn, treato thers w/ such kindness.  It may take a long time; but at some point you will notice how many smll lkindnesses are being done t o & by other people.Years ago I began by  stopping mycar and allowing a  car to leave the shoping center parking lot, It was less than a yearbeforee I  seldon had to wait to get out of the parking lot; what a DIFFERENCE  it  makes to  your day when others are so considerate  & patient, you can hardly not act the same wayat the next opportunity.
