Hire someone for a day whether you need it or not, you never know where it might go

All of my life I have been very independant.  I have built several homes, I cut and split my own firewood and I if something came along that needed to be done, I simply did it.  Some friends and I were talking about the down turn in the economy and counting our blessings that we are still doing ok.  The  conversation came around to how we could do our little part to help out.  We decided that we would hire a local to do some chore once a week.

With winter coming I have been busy making sure that everything is tucked away for the winter.  I put an ad at the post office.  I had a call within 20 minutes and I hired the young man, to come in and give me a hand.  We winterized the boat, picked up twigs that might later get caught in the snow blower, seeded some areas so grass would grow under the snow, moved some fire wood and pulled the garden. I was thrilled to have all the little stuff out of the way.

Today I found out just how quickly karma can swing around.  That young man stopped at the store to buy some food for his young family.  He came across a guy that he told his good fortune to and the guy suggested that he pass it on by helping out at can drive.  The young man went to the can drive and met a man who was down on his luck and he gave him $20 for the gas tank so he could apply for a job.  That man got the job and related that he was grateful for the job and how he had come to get the money so he could come for the interview.  His new found boss had friend that needed a handyman for his sister and the brother hired the young man that helped me.  The sister that he now works for wanted to sell a piece of property but didn’t know who to turn to.  She called me yesterday to list her property and to tell me the chain of events.

Most of the time we do not get to hear about how one act of kindness may affect someone.  It may be as simple as a smile at the right time or something that takes some sacrifice.  No matter what, random acts of kindness always bring a multitude of joy
