I have a very close friend . She lives in my locality . We are very close to each other . She has an extended family . She and her husband live with their two married brothers and old parents . She teaches in a college and simultaneously takes a lot of care of her family . Her two children are very loving but are more close to their aunts . For the past few days my friend's sister-in-law was hospitalised and she was found to be anaemic . Today the hospital asked them to arrange for blood as her haemoglobin was rapidly falling . They arranged for two bottles but wanted one more . My friend immediately went to the hospital and donated blood . She did not wait for a minute to think . I never knew that she donated at regular intervals . I am so proud of her . She inspired me too . Do you have any such experience ? Have your friend's deed ever made you proud ? Please share .

hi rollylolly yes I had a fri end who donated blood for me when I had bleeding diverticulitis and was hospitalixed as I had to have four units of blood to replace what I had lost.So the hospital bad two but my friend donated the other two. I owed her big time and she inspired me to help others whenever I could to pass it on.I did sign up with the Pass It On group but never heard from themn again. The idea is when someone does you a big favor, do not pay them back but pass on this help to the next person you meet who is in need of help. then you tell them dont thank me but pass it on to the next person you meet who needs help.

Wow! I'd like to applaud your friend for doing such a lovely act. I know that God will bless her even more because she is a kindhearted person. Helping someone in need may it be a little or of full effort is something really impressive.

I have several acquaintances I am very proud of and some not so much. I do love them all on different levels and can honestly say that I really love the fact that they persist on giving it all their best to be good people. What your friend does is very honorable and hope many also do as her. It really does not take much in helping others and I too would feel proud of a friend as yours.

Thanks HWG for your response . Yes many around us sometimes perform such outstanding jobs that we feel proud to be associated with them . My friend is so inspiring and I too feel that a little effort can bring changes in the lives of some who need help .

In the past my partner regular donated blood for other people. Not family member but strangers. he did it for few years. I'm proud of him and he is the most selfless person I have ever known in my life.

I would get slightly shocked to their action but I don't think I'll be proud of it. I can be proud of my self achievement, my family achievements but I don't proud of my friend's action, at max I'll be please or thankful for their actions and kind deed.
