Gave a classmate a ride home today.
A friend called me crying – She and her family were going to be without a place to live if they didn’t come up with the $2000 for a deposit on a place they finally found to rent. It took so long searching for a place- they could get that they had to live in a extended stay hotel (their landlord raised the rent so high they were forced to move) eating up the cash they needed… so I told her to meet me at the bank and pulled out the money for her so she could get the deposit in before losing the one place that they could afford, close to the area where she needs to keep her biz going and that would take them with their two beloved family pets.
My student left her white jacket in my classroom. It was so dirty, it was gray. Children had been ridiculing her about how dirty it was. So I took it home and washed it. She has a different teacher’s class in the morning and I had her jacket left on her chair and told her home room teacher not to mention how it got clean. She was surprised. When I saw her at 3rd period, she didn’t drop it on the floor as she usually does. She was wearing it.
Yesterday, a man who couldnt talk vocally ask me for money and food so I told him I would see him on the way out the store. He followed me to another part of the store which made me uneasy but my heart said to give so I proceeded with my intention to give. I gave to him and my heart smiled and I was grateful for the opportunity to give at this present moment in my life.#Good4_Agape1MillionActsofGood
