Good points you three - - - anytime I help someone there's always the thought in the back of my mind about my sons and their kids and hopefully they will receive a kind gesture from someone.

Well when you get in a bind. lifting those heavy beams with that scrawney *** of yours, a extra set of hands and a strong YOUNG back might just be the ticket, to gettin -er-don
I'm betting that young fella would be more than happy to help you out,, if for nothing else but some of that knowledge being passed on,
You can lie a little and tell everyone you built that house ALL BY YOURSELF, that is if you don't kill you're self trying to do it by your self.

Then he ask me to meet him half way to pick them up (about a half hour drive)
I was thinking to my self,heck no he is getting a great deal and now he wants me drive.
Well before I responded,my wife text me from work and said we needed to pick up her new glasses (in his town,we live in a small town)
So, I did email the guy and told him I could bring them with us.He ask if I could bring them to his work,Dairy Queen.I said yes.
As my wife and I were driving,I told my wife if this is a good hard working kid and has good grades in college.I will just give him the wheels and tires.
I show up at DQ and three young guys were busting there butts to get orders out.
He came out from behind the counter and I ask him what his major is in and what his grades were.He told me engineering and so far I have A,s sir.(that is right he said sir)

I told him he did not owe me anything.He said ,I have money ,and i told him to help someone else out sometime.
He later sent me a text saying that he had been praying from some wheels and tires and what that meant to him............I feel great.God is awesome!



(sorry if I mispelled anything,I do not see the spell check when I posted?)
that's awesome. Being from a big city I have almost lost all faith in humanity. The most I'll do for a stranger is give him a skateboard or something to keep him out of trouble. Wish I could do more but when you see families at the grocery store with shopping carts filled to the rim around the 1st/15th and then see EBT light up on the screen you can't help to notice these families are eating better than me, dressing better then me, and their kids are wearing Nikes and sporting an I-phone, how am I supposed to feel sorry for them? When I was growing up I didn't have name brand clothes, I didn't have the latest gadgets, and the media wasn't crying about my situation 24/7. For the most part, I will only care for those that don't have control over their destiny, those that are unable to meet the demands of society to survive, and those that have served in the military. All the lazy people can be put out in the streets as far as I'm concerned.

Thanks for the nice replies.I wish I would have titled the thread different.........maybe, Still good young guys out there or something like that.I did not mean to say I did anything great ,just the good Lord lead me to give them to him.I was not planning on it,but changed my mind on the way.
When I dropped off the wheels he did say two of his wheels where looseing air.
Here is what he text me "I have been praying for weeks.And wht u did for me was truly amazing it means so much and God bless u"


I have it locked in my phone.

Great deal..

This is something he won't never forget.. And you sure made a diffence in his life... What a great thing to do for someone.. The feeling YOU walked away with is worth more then the $50.00 you was wanting for them..
