Paying it Forward on a Monday!

By
Industry Observer with Responsive Pest Control

Good day all! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Today I decided to work from home after driving into our corporate office for the last couple of months.

Yesterday I told my wife I'd be happy to take her mother (my mother-in-law doesn't drive) to a doctor appointment. Yesterday we watched our grandson (my wife usually watches him on Monday and they both had a long night). Today I offered again to take my mother-in-law to her appointment. I know. This isn't a big thing. In fact, it pales in comparison to peopel I know who sit with friends who are terminally ill, etc.

It's just I felt good about helping others, especially my wife. She sometimes gets overwhelmed by all the demands on her time. Plus, I got to spend some quality time with my mother-in-law. I'm fortunate here. She is really sweet and appreciative of things being done for her.

So there you have it. I Paid it Forward on a Monday! Now that I've shared, I'd like to hear what you've been up to recently. Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Cute Blog Paul! Feels great helping others out! My mother lives with my Husband and I.  It makes me love him even more, knowing he has put his own privacy in his own home aside, to give me the opportunity to help her out too.  I just know he is going to get something extra from the man upstairs because of his sacrifice! :)

Patricia: Thank you! I hope so too for your husband's sake. The way I look at it, being upstairs is reward enough. Have a wonderful day!

Jason: Thank you. I couldn't agree with you more! Take care.

George: That's a great thought. I hadn't considered that but either way it was a blessing!
