My friend that lost his leg due to diabetes1

Saturday, September 28, 2013

I have been helping him for over 2 weeks. His house isn't ready to sell, yet.
I am almost completely finished with what I can do.
I am ready to be finished, too.

This commitment to help him has been a huge life learning lesson for me.
Friends and good deed jobs don't make good memories, I've discovered. Hopefully, I'll be able to look back on this experience and at least feel good about myself! Right now, I don't.
I have known this man and his family since 1976.
Now I realize I don't know him at all.
I will forgive, I WON'T FORGET...... and hopefully I can take something good from this experience.
After all, it was never about me to begin with!

    1CRAZYDOG there is a story behind all of this, for sure. I am so pleased that I 'm finished.

    From this point on, I will step aside from this type of commitment.
    Unless I have prayed about it and I'm not acting out of my emotions.

    Sounds like there's a story behind this, but for sure, I am one who can forgive, too, but I never forget. That would mean forgetting the lessons learned from the experience.

    Well, good luck to you and hope you had a good Sunday.
