On paying it forward: the proof is in the pudding


4 minutes ago
It’s amazing what can be accomplished when someone believes in you and you prove them right! I am house hunting, and the lady I bought my current home from showed me a house today. I thanked her for having a strong social conscience, and she got a little verklempt when she said, “you are the miracle I look to. I’m so proud of you for sticking it out and paying off your house, despite having lost your job.” I nearly sobbed! I had become unemployed shortly after signing the contract on my home, and feared that I would have to walk away from my investment. I was pregnant, single, and completely unsure of the future. Nancy let me stay in my home and catch up as able, and, fortunately, it didn’t take long to find work. It was a big pay cut, but I stuck it out until I was well enough to resume work in my field. Kudos to people like Nancy,for believing that good deeds can be rewarded, and believing in me! Sure wish my parents could see it this way.
