I can't think of anything I'VE done to relate here, but I thought I'd relate an act of someone ELSE'S kindness to me!

My wife and I have been having some finacnial problems for about a year. Between sicknesses (lost work, doctor visits, prescriptions, etc) and unexpected bills, we just can't seem to get our feet solidly back under us. Recently, my wife changed jobs. She left Wendy's about a week ago and went to our local Wal-Mart making $2 more an hour and moving form part-time to full-time, so we're hoping things will turn around for us now.

But back to the act of kindness...

During the worst of the problems last summer, we barely even had enough money to pay our bills, much less get groceries. We were jsut barely getting by. And getting anything extra was out of the question. At the plant where I work, we get our check stubs every Thursday, but we can't actually use the money until Fridays due to direct deposit.

At work we each are assigned our own personal lockers for safety shoes, safety glasses and other personal belongings. These lockers have vents to let the lockers air out.

Well, apparently I have a special friend at work, because every Thursday for about two months, $20 would just mysteriously turn up in my locker! Someone must have been inserting it through the slots in my locker door! I never found out who the mysterious money came from, and apparently they don't want to be found out, so I'm leaving it alone. But I thank God for my friend! I refused to use that money for necessities! We split it three ways between me, my wife and daughter just so that we get ourselves a little something! Boy, it sure put smiles back on our faces during a really hard time!

Thank you, Lord, for such thoughtful friends!

Wow!! the last part of your story is interesting. i wish i had such a mysterious yet helpful and much needed friend.. i find myself in situations where i give give give and give more yet none of the people i dedicate my all to ,seem to even care about me. No one actually fights for me as much as i do..

i recently supported my ex girlfriend despite the ache she has caused me over the years we dated,
she did not have a place to lie down after her current guy kicked her out in the middle of the night.
He happens to live a few miles from where am set up. she called in tears saying that she's been thrown down the stir case by the guy..i took an Uber went to get her, nursed her, fed her and gave her a place to sleep..i believe that can be called an act of kindness..right?
