I’ve been pondering about sharing this for months now. I refuse to share at first cuz scared of what it will make me feel later…but upon advice from someone, I know now, good things are meant to be shared.
So for few months now, each time I get my salary, I will go shopping with a very dear friend. We will spend on groceries especially the basic needs; rice, sugar, canned food, eggs, soap and such. Then we will send it to unfortunate family.
I am lucky because my dearest friend knows which family to give it to… it is her daily job to reach the people in need. (You won’t believe some of the stories she share sometimes! I wish she can share it to all of you. We just have no idea, no idea at all, how lucky we all are! Or how unlucky we actually are…)
You will be surprised how little money it will cost you, compared to the feelings you get later. The feelings you get will stay with you for days, or even months….and hopefully forever. I still remember each of the family I met and believe me, they are the ones who gave me the greatest lessons in life.
Prof Muhaya is an optometrist. Each time she succeeded operating on her patients, she will say, she is just a tool. Everything is from Allah.
That is how I feel. I am just a tool. I get all this rezeki and I am the tool to keep some and share some.
It is my hope that many more of my friends do the same thing. Trust me…it is fun! Shopping for others is more fun than shopping for yourself… 🙂
p/s: if you are interested and just didn’t know how to reach them, let me know. I will do my best to help you helping others…it is my greatest pleasure!
