Be a Good Samaritan, Make Others Happy Too

Back when i was just a fresh graduate, and i had the chance to work as a staff of an Internet Provider, i was assigned at the internet cafe, and was located in a mall here in Gensan. The walls were of course made of glass, and we have all the chance of seeing beggars and vagrants outside the mall. Now, our space is just an attachment to two big eateries, the Chow King and Jollibee, and i can see them beggars asking for alms and some of them being picked on by bystanders. Some of them were just sleeping in the alleys and were just so hopeless they didn't know what to do, and they are carrying newborn babies with them.

I felt so lucky that I got myself a job, and that my parents crawled their way to give us a nice education, and grant us what we must have in life, stability.

There's this woman who always stays there at the alley overlooking the glass window where we are located, and i just can't help but stare at them, and trying to think what I could do to help them. I know they must help themselves too, but i knew too, that because of their state, they know nothing of some sort to uplift their situation. I know I cannot help them much, but I helped anyway.

At times when I eat, I go directly to Jollibee and/or ChowKing, and get myself lunch but I don't consume them all, I apportion a half of what I eat, and even buy extra rice for the old woman.

The thought that they may not have tasted the meals others were ordering from that resto is what made me twitch, most of the time when I get myself lunch, the old woman has a part of it. I don't deliver the extra lunch myself, I ask the guard to give the old woman my food. I don't want to be known, because generosity does not need ringing any bells just to be known and be given gratefulness.

That small deed I know made her happy. My friends say I have a big heart, well, it's just my own way of letting others know that at this time, we still have Good Samaritans.

Oh yes, until now, I do that, whenever I get the chance of helping others, especially those indigents we have, I make it a point to make them happy in my small ways.

I just know that as long as I live, wherever I go, I will continue walking my way, helping others as much as I can.

so true. in the world today, a lot of people try to buy things to make them happy yet dont get satisfied to the fullest because the truth is, we only get satisfied when we start giving ourselves to others.

It is spiritually comforting to know that there are still people who care about the less fortunate ones. More power to you and to your kind.
