Handing out help…

Lending a hand to someone in need

…is one of those little things that remind me life is good.

Ayudar a alguien que lo necesita

…es una de esas pequeñas cosas que me hacen recordar lo buena que es la vida.

I am ashamed to say I had forgotten about the great feeling that comes from lending a hand to someone in need.

The feeling goes beyond patting yourself on the back for doing a good deed; it goes beyond self-satisfaction. The feeling you get when you help someone who needs it–without being asked, out of your own free will–is a deep feeling of growth. I like to believe that with every good deed, like helping someone in need, you grow a little as a person and become a little bit more aware of your own humanity.
