Are you ready for this? Two posts in two days! Wow! I'm on a roll!
I just had to type this though. Proof that there are some really good people in this world.
First of all, to start my story, I must give props to my 75 year old mother. Who, like me (or how I used to be), has a little social anxiety, and fears trying anything new ALONE. But, with a lot of nagging by yours truly, she got to the gym at 7:45 and joined a circuit class with a bunch of ladies she didn't even know. When she rolled in, I was so excited and happy to see that she showed up. I promptly went over to the table with the usual morning crowd and introduced them. They were more than welcoming and all the ladies were so nice and helpful during class (like I knew they would be). And the trainer was very helpful as well. I just love all these people that I've had the pleasure of meeting since I've started my job at the gym. I will never ever regret going back to work. Ever.
Not only are the people at the gym a fabulous crowd, listen to this. Afterwards, mom stopped at the gas station to fill her car. But she was having trouble with the pump. So eventually, a man came up and asked her if she needed help. She did, and he was able to help her figure the problem out. When mom went into the store to pay for her gas, she found out that the nice man who had helped her, also paid for her gas! She wanted so badly to thank him, but he had already left. What a nice thing he did for her! A whole tank of gas - that's over $50 for a total stranger! God bless this man!
It gives me goosebumps and I almost tear up when I think about it. Just makes me want to do something anonymously good like that. You know that commercial where people see someone else doing something good and it sets off this chain reaction of good deeds? I believe that is how good works. This world may seem cruel and evil at times, but I'm positive there way more good people than bad on this earth. Imagine if all the good people did good things without needing the recognition for it?! Thank you anonymous man for helping out my mom!
