Podcast: Lending a Hand
Let me tell you two more true stories about “lending a hand” to others.
When I was about ten years old, my next step neighbor’s husband passed away very suddenly.
At that point my brother and I took over the grass cutting and snow blowing responsibilities for our neighbor who became a single mom with four children.
When I was a software engineer at AT&T Bell Laboratories in Naperville, Illinois, I was part of the Bell Labs Community Outreach program.
One of my volunteer assignments to assist the high school students at Simeon Career Academy High School on the south side in the city of Chicago with learning computer programming.
My colleagues and I lent a hand to the students who desired to try to better themselves and give them other opportunities to make it out of their neighborhood and into a high-tech major in college or a technical school.
In both instances, lending a hand resulted in a positive impact for my next door neighbor and students at Simeon Career Academy High School.
How can “lending a hand” make a difference in your life?
Lending a hand will always create a positive impact in your own life and the lives of others you are interacting with.
I am still “lending a hand” whenever I can. How about you?
