TEXAS -- Good will to others…how often?
How often do you say hi, hello or nod a gesture of hello to others?
How often do you open a door for the elderly, injured, handicapped or children?
Or just hold the door, because you know the person behind you is going the same way also?
If someone was carrying a package or large box – do you hold the door for him or her?
How often or any gesture of good will to others do you make to help others?
When you are at the toll both – do you say hi and thank you?
When you go shopping do you say hi and thank you to the clerk?
Do you volunteer in your community?

A little story:
An elderly lady was walking thru the post office parking lot with a cane – you could see she was having a hard time walking and there where lots of cars going in and out, I asked her if you would let me put her mail in the mail box, she was surprised, and said thank you, I told her she could be safe and stand by her car and watch me put it in the Post Office mail box, so she would be sure it was in there.

If this elderly lady were from your family, mom, or grandmother you would hope someone could do the same for her.
I did it because I knew it was the right thing to do.
We are all people and sometimes someone might need a little help, it’s not hard to give a little, it’s gratifying and enlightening.
Please try it; a little compassion, caring and giving, will go a long way and change your life.

Seriously Siffer when and how often have or do you ever try to help someone without something in return? Or is it just easier for you to hide behind what you think is funny by the off the wall joking round, name-calling, crap talk and typing. Please try joining the rest of us, and try being human for a day. P.S. Please give us and the ADMIN advanced notice so we can prepare.

You know, I've noticed that a lot. My grandparents are from Kentucky, so I was raised with the "consideration of others" attitude that it seems southerners are instilled with. I can't tell you how often I get looks of surprise when I thank and smile at a fast-food worker, or when I hold the door open for the folks walking in behind me. It's an amazing feeling to see how happy you can make others with just a simple gesture. I hope everyone can experience that.

Trying to get the self-absorbed selfish people to think beyond their own little realm and open their eyes, to see if they have a heart or a soul and start carrying for others and what’s around them.
