Helping each other "move along" in this world

Helped a person close to me get some stuff done this weekend. We're both in our 40s and still trying to figure things out.

Growing up, I figured most grown ups knew what they were doing. Turns out, I was wrong.

I helped a lot of different people this weekend. I helped my mom with a tax question, taught Sunday School, led a family meeting about baptism, had real conversation with Darling Bride, helped a tax client sort through a casualty loss, and maybe something else or two.

The point is not about patting myself on the back, it's about taking a moment to realize that it is nice to make a contribution to society. I'm certainly not perfect. I also have in mind someone that I'd like to do a favor for by punching his lights out.

Is this what they say about random acts of kindness? (excluding the fisticuffs)

If so, then I'm in favor of it.
