    A very Depressed Man

    A month ago, We were going up to Ft Smith (100 miles away) and we went thru Oklahoma. I planned to stop at several pawn shops to look for a couple things and so we stopped at one in Poteau. I was hobbling along as usual when one of the workers began talking to me. One thing led to another and I could see that he was struggling with something. At first I thought it was with his own health problems so I "shared" a little about my own health struggles in the past and even now. This led to more stuff at which point he asked if he could call me later on that evening to talk. So I gave him my number and went on. The talk was over an hour until 11 that night and he was a very broken man, crying several times. He thanked me for spending the time with him on the phone and we hung up.

    So yesterday, we stopped in the pawn shop again, I just wanted to check on the guy. He was very excited to see me and made his way over to shake my hand. He told me that after talking to me (about a lot of stuff) his life had made a turn around. He was actually happy again and was now more involved with people again. His boss was very happy too. The man was now active in a local Cowboy church and asked if I would come speak one night so that was unexpected. It was just very nice to see such a turnaround in this fifty something man. Just took a little of my time, no big deal for me. Look around you, you can do the same thing, it is easy but you have to take that first step. Very gratifying indeed. I shared this with you not to toot my own horn but to hopefully enable some of you to help others in their struggles, sometimes they just need someone to listen to them as they pour their heart out. Me, I have another friend now.

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    You are a good person, and rightly so. After all, sometimes just enough that someone would listen to you and give you a chance to do a good deed.
    At one time, I also did a good deed and gave the person one bitcoin ( you can learn about Bitcoin here at https://bitcoinbestbuy.com/what-is-bitcoin/ )
    Then it cost a penny, but now it's $ 8k, I hope that this money helped the person.
