Has anyone ever done a good deed for you?

As I was counting my blessings yesterday I immediately thought of my mother and how much I miss her. She did so many little things to make my life better, whether it was buying something at the grocery that she knew I really liked and might not be able to afford or ordering unique little gifts that she gave to all of us girls. Looking back I think one of the kindest things she did for me was giving my boyfriend her car when she gave up driving. She knew that since she would no longer be able to drive me where I needed to go that I would need transportation. We could not have afforded a car at the time and her gift was truly a blessing. Who has done a good deed for you in your life? Was it a family member or friend, or perhaps a total stranger?

I was driving alone the interstate and had a blow out, thank God there were no cars near me because I went swerving all over the place all in both lanes. I got control of the car and pulled to the side. The blowout occurred near a welcome center. An employee (male), saw what had happen and came and changed my tire for me. I was real grateful for that because I didn't have a cell phone at the time. I had no idea what I was going to do. And also I am happy it happened in the daytime. I really keep check on my tires now.

ya Friend even in my case, it wud be my mom.. She is the only person who has done so many things for me in my life .. Whatever good things have happend to me till now are all because of the good deeds she has done in my life.. my bro wud b the second person who has helped me a lot, he has always been there to do something for me.. my best friend is one person to whom i dont have to tell anything , she understands it on her own and does it for me.. she is one person who is always making an effort to know what i want whats goin on in my mind. These three people i must say are the ones whose good deeds have greatly affected my life.. I guess my life would be incomplete withoout these people around

A lot of people have done things for me that I wish that I could repay them for, but I do not know that I can. I think the nicest thing someone ever did for me was bring my cat Goldie to me. That was nice. I try my best to do good deeds for people when I can.

in my life, there are so many people to help me, teach me and stay with me. not only parents, friends and othermates but sometimes strangers will. God bless them.

My family and friends have always a lot for me through thick and thin. But I remember one particular good deed done by a total stranger. I did not ask his name so I refer to him as a Good Samaritan. It was raining cats and dogs that evening and most of the roads and railway tracks were blocked. I was returning from work and waiting for a bus to reach the railway station all soaked up. I waited for 3 hours but nothing came. I was scared as it was getting very dark and all cell networks were also busy. Then suddenly out of the blue a Good Samaritan appeared out of nowhere with a huge gypsy and asked me to hop in. I was very apprehensive about going with a total stranger worried whether I could trust him or not. But then something in his eyes made me go with him. He safely drove me right to my doorstep and left. I still wonder if God himself had come and helped me that day.

When we lost our house, people gave us clothing, dish-wear to eat off of, they gave us food to eat...even though I never met these people, I don't know who they are. I can't forget them or not be grateful to them. They helped us when we could've easily become homeless. They helped us back on our feet.

It feels great if somebody does a good deed for you. Sometimes I stumble with somebody who'll help me pick up stuff fell on the ground. But usually people who are dear to me are doing good deeds for me :)

There are many good deeds that I have experienced with another person. Like my neighborhood, I was not recieve money with my father and I have no food later in the morning, so this neighbor said that she has extra food and she gave it to me. then I was very lucky in that. There are good deeds in our everyday life that we havn't notice like good persons treated you well.

My mum is always doing things like that too pal , Dad and her both have Alzheimer's now as you know but Mum is always sending for gifts for me , like a locket that says " my daughter my joy" really special things like that , when we go out we argue who is going to pay for the meal etc and she is always trying to do it , I try not to think too far into the future as I know both of them are slowly disappearing :( . I am happy you have such lovely memories xx

I think I have to name my tutor at college who did so much for me and when I was going to quit she took me aside and told me not to be so stupid and it was the way she said it, she said I was too damn hard on myself and that she had faith in me. I nearly came to quitting but after her talk I continued and I have so much to be thankful to her. She had faith in me more than I had in myself. Not only did she help me pass my first year at college she also took me on and got me my NVQ3! She believed in me and without her well I would have flunked for sure. She was very wise and she didn't suffer fools gladly she told you straight and I really really admired her.
