People Helping People

  Have you ever been helped by someone who asked for nothing in return? I can

remember at least two occasions in my  life. I'm sure there have been more, yet

these two stand out in my mind. 

  The first occasion was when I was a teenager. My parents had taken the family to

visit our cousins. In our cousins back yard was a pond, and we had decided to swim

on one particular day. (Keep in mind that I don't know how to swim, I just splash a

lot.) Anyway, I was on an inner tube and decided I was bored. I figured I could

change position and have more fun. When I slipped off the inner tube, I quickly

learned I had made a bad decision. I had no clue where the inner tube had gone,

and really didn't care at that point. I was too busy trying to keep my head above

water. After going under about the second time, I heard my cousin say something

like "Oh, look! Jimmy's drowning!" Then she quickly swam over and hauled me to

safety. Without her help that day, I would have drowned. How do you repay that?

"Thank you" doesn't seem like much for saving a life. Yet, it was the best I could


  The other occasion happened just a couple years after I got married. Cell phones

weren't popular at the time, and I had gone to work. My wife had gone to town,

and was returning home when she had a flat tire. So there she was, stranded on the

side of the road, with 2 small children. A farmer came by, and helped her get

home. When I got home from work, she told me what had happened, and said I

was supposed to call him. I did, and he came over and picked me up. We took the

flat off the car, and then went to his house. There he hunted for a tire the same size

as my flat. When he found one, he took off my flat, and put his on. So I asked him

what I owed him. He told me I didn't owe him anything, and that someday I would

be in a position to help someone, and that would be his payment. This man

invested his time and money on me, and asked for nothing in return.
   This is similar to what I see on IBOToolBox. I see people who help other people

and ask for nothing in return. In other words, people helping people. Isn't this what

life's about?
