>No good dead goes Un-Noticed

That was my thought when leaving work to get lunch. I have been taught by my mother and grandmother to always do good deeds. In this current job I started as temp and busted my ass for the company and my family.

It started with me working 12 hours a day to get work done. I was the first in and the last to leave. It was all good to me because my family needed the OT to pay bills.

A year or so after that I was hired and a year after that the OT was shutdown and work load was moved around. It was horrible timing because we needed to refi to get out of this home loan. All of those have now resulted in a short sale on our credit.

Last Tuesday my group was let go with a 60 day working notice. I call this mental equity stripping but that's another topic. I am not convinced that everyone was made aware of this at the same time. If so then the managments were looking out for the ones they liked better.

Before you start riding me on how normal that is, I know too. In this case the person is acting as if they had no idea that this was comming about. My issue is don't lie now that it is over and you have been guided through the storm of this lay off.

Today I have reason to beleive this person has landed a job that pays well. I like this person and I am glad they have found a position in the company.

Back to the topic of this post. I feel I have done great deeds for this company. I started feeling that good deeds don't get noticed. So I left work to get out of energy.

I had not had lunch at this point so decided to go to fast food place for Fish sandwich. When I got out my car and started heading to door I noted a white women 5 steps behind me.

Rather then rush to get in I held the door behind me so she did not have to open door. Once she was in I let door go so I could open next door for her. Rather than opening the same way and let her in first, allowing her to order first.

Keep in mind my thoughts above and I did a good deed anyways. This lady after ordering her cone turned and said "I'm going to buy this persons lunch"! I said wow because I am thinking of my thoughts above as well. She joked and said don't break the bank. I told her no that is not it at all, I then tell her my thoughts of good deeds going un-noticed and she smiled.

The moral of this story to me is this, The Soul Knows All. Trust you are where you should be and do what you think about.

Thanks for this meat of life
