One good deed turns another....

Since May I have been helping out my best (male) friend by doing security on a part time basis at a parking lot. We had devied up the responsibilities and I have ended up doing more than my fair share (due to one circumstance or another coming up) - but, then again, sometimes friends just do that for friends (of course, he's paying me for the work!!!)

Anyhow at the site, a woman had a problem with heat intolerance, but she had let her handicapped parking sticker expire accidently b/c she doesn't think out it in the other parts of the year -- just when it gets scorching hot (especially this year with more than 33 days without rain now here). She asked if she could park closer, but it was outside of our contractual obligations....so I came up with a Plan B for her that met our contractual obligations and allowed her to park under a tree that wasn't a restricted curb area...and, enabled her to not sit in the long exit of people leaving the school when it let out. (They are attending a 56 day school to pass the bar exam!!)

Today (which, originally wasn't my day, but b/c his house was broken into in the hills, he was having to wait for the glass folks to come to repair the door they broke into to, and being the good friend that I am, I pitched in today), she came up and asked me, if I remembered her.... and, I said "You are M (we'll call her M for the sake of this blog), how is your parking space working out?" She said, "Well, that is what I wanted to talk to you about." She handed me a card with a Starbucks Gift Certificate amounting to $10 in it. I told her that I couldn't accept it, I was just doing my job. And, she insisted that I keep it because it isn't often that people truly understand her issue and I came up with a viable, creative solution for her. I was certain flattered and surprised!!!

(On another note: I wonder if this is going to be indicative of what this whole week is going to be like???? You know, they say that good things do happen to those who wait -- right!!! hmmmm.... and I am hiding out with the Beau this weekend; my best friend will just have to take 2nd place this weekend!!! lol.... )

Good for you, Rose.

I'm finding more and more that one gets what one expects. If you expect to meet happy, generous, grateful people, then you are more likely to do so. If you expect yourself to be happy and appreciative, then the Universe responds by arranging circumstances to make that happen.

I think this bodes well for your upcoming weekend.

(((hugs)))
