I don't know how many saw the movie, but I have just been a part of the theme. I belong to another site that allows you to keep up with your steps lets you make friends and have competirions. A very nice lady was using a cheap generic Pedometer. well I had been given one of the most elite pedometers by another member of the sight after i had already bought one that was in the middle. I gave it to the lady who could not afford one. i kept the one i had been given and gave her the new one i had bought. 2 days later a friend of the family gave me a nice glucometer she could no longer use thanks to her doctor and 400 test strips to go with it. i was amazed. i was running out of strips for mine which is not as good as the one i was given. I just wanted to share this with all of you. and i understand strips for my new one are not all that high. i am sill blown away by it all.

Good for you Michael. I love that you had no idea what kind of blessing was going to be bestowed on you. You were just following your heart. It's the old what goes around comes around, in a most caring way. Be blessed and Happy Holidays.

This is a great story and a perfect time of the year to tell it. It's always good to be reminded that there are people in the world who want to do the right thing, and who, in turn are also the receipient of a good deed.

Sometimes you have to empty out of your bucket so you can take more in.
Good for you to be passing on the blessings and more come down the line!

Loved the movie, loved your story. It is how the world really works and as we pay things forward with no seeking of reward, things always seem to come our way. Amazing isn't it?

Nice, a class act by you, and it shows no good deed shall go unrewarded.

It was a wonderful movie; I so like the idea that when we give and influence others in a positive manner, we will also be the recipient of similarly good things. It feels so good when it happens. I'm happy for you, Michael, and it's obvious from what you said, that it felt very good to your also.
