When You're in the Service of Your Fellow Beings...

...You might just be helping yourself.

Earlier this week I noticed that someone had pulled out the last roll of toilet paper in the main bathroom. I was grateful and mildly astonished that the plastic packaging actually made it into the garbage can, but no one had gotten a new package to go under the sink. Thinking I'd be nice to whomever was caught paperless at some upcoming point I decided to grab a new package and place it in the cupboard. Well, guess who found herself as the paperless user in there this afternoon? Yep, you guessed it- Me. Let this be a reminder that no act of kindness is ever unrewarded!

alas...how many times I have not heeded the thought to replenish the supply...and I have been the one who suffered...

Good reminder. Our's only has one roll in the cupboard and I've meaning to fill it up! I'm the only one that does this simple, yet very important job. :)

Sometimes the blessings of service are realized rather quickly. :-)
