Continuing in our (now unpopular) series, does anyone care to inspire us with personal small stories of Chasodim they or others did. We’re all anonymous, so there’s no problem of anava (I think). Just for our inspiration.February 20, 2011 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #742820well meaning busy bodyMember
One chesed I cannot forget after 1/2 century. I was in Shiur when I sneezed, & was out of tissues.With my hands occupied I could not raise my hand to ask for permission to leave. I was saved by my neighbor who raise his hand & nodded to Rebbe.February 20, 2011 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #742821

This past erev Shabbos, my son was driving my husband and me home from some errands, and as we passed near our house, we noticed a young frum guy walking in the direction of a local train station. He had about a ten minute walk if he was going where we thought he was going, and we stopped the car and asked if he needed a lift. He was SO grateful, as the train was just a couple of minutes away and he did not expect to make it in time. We did get him there in time to catch it, and meanwhile noticed someone we knew coming FROM the train , so we asked him if he needed a ride home (he didn’t, but I always believe that machshava k’maaseh). Then as we turned around to finally go home, we saw a third guy (also a stranger) and asked if he needed a lift. He wanted to walk because it was such a beautiful day.
We are of the “don’t miss an opportunity to do a mitzvah” school of thought (not boasting, just saying…), so we felt it was very special that Hashem gave us these opportunities.
There was a time when I did not yet drive, and many people were very kind and helpful to me when I needed a ride, or one of my children did. I made a neder with my husband’s haskama, that if and when I did learn to drive, I would always make it my business to try give a ride to a Yid obviously in need, if it were in my power to do so, even if it took us out of the way. (Don’t start making reservations for me to chauffeur you around, however; this only applies to frum people my husband, children, or I see in the street or while shopping, or to our friends and family).February 20, 2011 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #742829
Good one, The Goq (two, actually).
I complimented The Goq.February 20, 2011 11:52 pm at 11:52 pm #742830observanteenMember
My friend’s family will never turn down a chessed project. Be it a party, going to a ger/BT’s wedding (where there are few attendees), they would do ANYTHING for their fellow Jew! (Her mother won’t pick up her clothing she sent to the cleaners even if they provide delivery cuz, “I’ve got a car too. Why take advantage of others?) It’s wonderful to see that it rubs off on the kids too…February 21, 2011 12:13 am at 12:13 am #742831
I don’t really have any Chasodim I can think of now. That’s why I created this thread, to share someone else’s! (Is that a chesed – using someone’s story to motivate someone else?)February 21, 2011 1:06 am at 1:06 am #742832ItcheSrulikMember

Yes, I also think it was a typo. When I become perfect, I’ll complain 🙂February 21, 2011 1:55 pm at 1:55 pm #742837

Does refraining from getting angry count?
I didn’t yell at a guy who almost hit me on his bike.February 21, 2011 10:53 pm at 10:53 pm #742840
If he would have hit you, and you kept your cool, that would have really been something!February 22, 2011 12:59 am at 12:59 am #742841HealthParticipant
