have you ever..

Have you ever worked really hard for someone, for no tangible pay, and only at the very end realized that it was God working through you to bless someone who really needed the help?
That happened to me today. I just wanted to say here, "Thank you God for using me to help this young family, and forgive me for grumbling in the midst of it. I am totally blessed that you gave them a great place to raise their cubs, and that you used my muscles mightily ( ouch) to get most of their furniture and household stuff out there in one day."


For those who ask, my mom is doing well, we had to put her oldest dog down this week, I know that was difficult. Mom has significant back pain, and we are considering cold beam laser
to see if it will help. Has anyone heard of this? I think its been in Canada for many years.

I am working a lot in concrete staining and sealing - seems I am headed that direction more and more. It is very satisfying, like painting on a concrete canvas, and very enduring.

Hello, Michele sent me. How wonderful that you were able to help others. Sorry about your mother's dog - losing a pet is never easy, especially not when you have to make the decision to put one down.

David, you are blessed by that realization and your gratitude for it. Sorry about your mom - and her dog.

I haven't heard of it but if it heals her pain then all the better for you both.

Glad you are doing what you love to do and can enjoy it. Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Stopping by to say hi from Canada. I haven't heard of cold beam laser, though.

This is the reason that I help the Aginoths with the children for nothing - sometimes it's just the right thing to do, to give away your skills to those who need you.

You are rewarded by love and support in return - better than coin.

Sorry about your mom's dog, I know how attached we get to our pets. Thinking of your mom.

So sorry about your mom's pet. It is never easy to loose a faithful friend. I hope you find help for her pain as well.

My warmest best wishes to your Mum. She probably needs lots of hugs just now and is lucky to have a son to give them to her.
Do hope you can sort out the pain.

I love when I can raise to my highest self. It doesn't always happen but when it does I receive so much more than I give! It's a magical formula.

I'm really sorry to hear about your Mom's pain and about her dog.

What you did sounds like it was very rewarding for you though. Good Samaritans are becoming rare these days so I always applaud anyone who will selflessly help someone else.
