Helping a Friend

December 11th, 2007 at 08:13 pm

A friend of mine who is in poor health has no money coming in due to certain terrible circumstances.Although we are not rich the wife and I felt we had to help.

We sent 2000 dollars whch is a chunk of change for us. The good Lord blessed us with the ability to help and so we did. I am not looking for a pat on the back or any recognition.

He is a nice man but totally clueless about money. He has lived on the edge for many years. Worked hard but could never get his finances in order.

I told my friend to forget about paying me back. I think sometimes it is good to help when you can. I suppose it means that some luxury things are not going to be there for us now. In the end what is important in life?

I think I have done the right thing. I believe I am obligated to help if I can do so. He is a very good friend and a decent man. My wife and I think the world of him.

MAybe I am looking for someone to say that I did the right thing. In the end I suppose that does not really matter.

I know in my heart I did the right thing and at the end of the day that is all that matters! Someday I might find myself in my friends position. There is a certain karma in the universe that repays in way or another. I guess I'll be content with that thought.

Just musing about this. Just musing.

    That is an amazing thing you did for your friend. I believe things will go around and come around, so I'm sure you will receive some type of fortune in the future. Not necessarily in monetary figure, but could be health, love, or, simply happy life.
    Good for you, and you really should proud of yourself. Not many people can do what you have done for your friend.

    That is part of being blessed, to share with others. Of course you did the right thing, especially if you and the wife decided on it together. Hopefully he will use the money wisely.

    Paul, I think you have done the right thing also. I have always tried to help others cause I believe what goes around, comes around.

    I hope the money helps. Maybe there is a karma in the Universe that goes around. I recieved a good deal of support here when I was having financial troubles.

    I guess in the end you help others in whatever way you can! Thanks for the help and kind words all of you have given me!WinkSmile

    WOW! Money is not the first thing that comes to my mind when giving help. Usually it is my time.

    And yes, as we get older we must live life doing what is "RIGHT" at the time, because to have regrets 'later' is not an option.

    You're a good man, Charlie Brown.

    No "luxury" item you could buy with that money would give you a better feeling than knowing that you've helped another in need, particularly someone you call "friend". A wonderful example, especially at this time of year. Happy holidays.

    BTW, how is your wife's leg?? If it's not being too noisy, what kind of surgery did she have?
