Good deed for the day

Tonight while Chad and I were working on putting up the Christmas tree, the doorbell rang. It was a girl who looked like she was in high school and had been crying. She asked if she could use our phone, she tried to get a hold of someone to come and pick her up but didn't get an answer. She walked away and I asked Chad if she was wearing a jacket, because it was freezing outside (ok, probably like 50-60 something degrees) and he said no so I told him to go get her. We gave her one of my sweatshirts and Chad asked her where she was headed. It turned out to be about 3-4 miles away from where we live so Chad gave her a ride back to her neighborhood and she finished the walk to her house.

She said "Thank you, thank you, thank you very much!!".

Chad's response? "MERRY CHRISTMAS!!" ;o)

Good deed for the day? Check.
