The Law of Reciprocity

I wanted to tell a little story about the Law of Reciprocity. Normally I don't talk about it because it is to remain private. But It's a good example of how we are rewarded for our good deeds. I am not one to toot my horn, but this is just an example.

Yesterday, someone whom I am very interested in called me to come visit her at work. Before I stopped by, I went to Safeway to buy some gum. (Keep in mind I am always consciously looking for a way to help others or spread a little love). I was looking all day long yesterday for the right moment.

Anyway, as I was walking out of Safeway, I saw a homeless man with two shopping carts full of his personal belongings. He was sitting on the curb in the parking lot. Minding his own business and NOT bothering anyone or even begging. Just sitting.

I reached in my wallet and pulled out the last $3.00 to my name immediately and gave it to him and told him to go next door to MacDonalds and get himself a burger. he claimed he didn't like MacDonalds (I don't blame him). He said he wanted a Wiener Schnitzel. I told him he could have whatever he liked. Then I got in my truck and went to visit Mary.

This morning, the very moment I crawled out of bed, I got a call from a customer who I did a bid for window cleaning the other day. She scheduled me and wants other work done as well. Minimum of $200.00 for just the windows.

So, you see? you give.... you get. As long as it isn't done selfishly, you WILL be rewarded.

=)

I really needed that job. I got it.

Whenever I get a little low on cash, I just find someone to help and the money comes from places you'd never expect it to come from. Just in the nick of time.

Every time.

True that Jolly! Just after struggling to get some cash to NODOOM I got a call this morning as well, asking if I was still interested in a job I applied for a couple of weeks ago, it's just a temporary position, but would be perfect as it's only a few weeks and I get credits for school for it. I have a meeting with them on Thursday and if they like me I'll start Friday. cheers.gif

yup.gif I've had the same thing happen on numerous occasions. One of the most stunning examples was a few years back in Florida.
On Christmas day I went to the car wash after opening presents, there was a guy there who asked if I could spare a dollar because he hadn't eaten in two days.
I pulled out a ten and gave it to him.
He said I saved his life, and I responded - It's nothing, merry Christmas!
When I got back to the house there was a hundred dollar bill that blew in the yard from god knows where, laying on the concrete slab in front of the front door! damned.gif
Many other similar instances but that blew my mind.
