    Have you done your Christmas time good deed yet?

    This is a Christmas past time for many different people around the world. I was recently walking through a Walmart parking lot after I finished my daily shopping when I heard a metallic sound from something my shoe accidentally kicked while I was walking to my car. I stopped and turned around and saw this big nail (Pictured here) laying on the parking lot. So I went back and picked it up so that no one would end up getting a flat tire. I figured that this might count for my Christmas time good deed this year. What do you think?

    I live in a more ethereal and spirit filled world. Perhaps you stopped the lady with the two children in the car from getting a flat tire that prevented them from getting on the freeway and into a hellfire wreck with your cousin.

    Personally i think gifts should be a little more consumed in love.

    However you may have just stopped a nice lady from a tire blowout on that same freeway that smacked into an oil and gas tanker.......

    It's nice that you picked up that nail!  It could have affected more than one tire!  A simple gesture has sometimes big consequence and people even don't realize it!  Good for you!
    I did several good deeds in the recent weeks.  I have 87 year old friend who doesn't have family around and she needs a ride when the weather is not good to go to medical appointments.  So I brought her already several times to her appointments and I promised her to help her through the winter.
    Two days ago, I spent a whole day filling the shelves of a organization who helps kids in need and their family.  This is the time of the year where they receive donations of food from the different schools of our area as well as some gifts for the kids in need.  The food on the shelves will be distribute to families in need.  The kids need food to be able to study at school and this organization tries to break the cycle of poverty by helping the children and their family to eat better.
    My next good deed for that organization will be next weekend to redo their website :-)

    Seldom do we know the results of such a good deed.  But it is not the knowing, but the doing that makes it a good deed. 
    I personally do not wait until Christmas to engage in doing good deeds.
    I find that my daily routine will normally include assisting in some way that results in providing a good deed for the environment.  Whether this be picking up a nail in the parking lot, providing a meal for a homeless street person, assisting an elderly person with their packages, or just providing a smile to a passing stranger; it is my simple way of providing what I can.
    Recently, I sat at lunchtime in a park speaking with a street person while sharing my large lunch.  He informed me that he did not want to have the same lifestyle as mine, because he could not handle the pressures of it.
    He stated that he was very fortunate in his current environment because good people like me always assisted him when he needed it.  He also showed me a picture album of all his travels.  The pictures did not contain any photos of him, but only postcards of the cities he had visited.
    At the end of this viewing, he quietly said, "Have you been to that many wonderful places?"
    I answered that I had not. 
    He then said, "Too bad, cause you would meet other nice people like yourself."
    Then he was off with his little knapsack - smiling and greeting other strangers as he walked away.
    That wonderful fall meeting will remain in my memory banks forever.

    I think that everyone in the parking lot should thank you and you should get a front page story in the newspaper.
