Good Deeds

There’s an old expression, ‘No good deed goes unpunished.’ People do good deeds for many reasons, but sometimes they backfire. Like covering for a sick colleague, and you get stuck at work late. Offering the person with a few items to go ahead of you, and the cashier announces that they are the last customer for that lane. Or helping a friend move, and you pull your back out. Yes, good deeds can backfire. But when you do good, the good always comes back in some way. Especially when you least expect it, and moments when you need a friend. Always do good to others.
