Wednesday Medley


National Good Samaritan Day is observed on March 13th.  This day is also known as Good Samaritan Involvement Day. This is a day for unselfish actions to help those in need and to celebrate kindness.
The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible parable where a Samaritan helped a stranger who had been robbed and beaten and left to die by the side of the road.  The Samaritan not only cleaned the man’s wounds and clothed him, but took him to an inn where he paid for the man’s care.
The term is used today to describe those who perform acts of kindness for those in need, especially those who are strangers.
Make an effort to help someone who is struggling or having a problem. Use #GoodSamaritanDay to post on social media.
1.  When did someone come to your rescue and can you tell us about it?

About a year ago, I had a flat tire.  Hub and I had just gotten home from the hospital, I was driving through our small town, and I heard this noise...not knowing what it was, I kept driving.  Bam!  I had a flat tire.  I didn't know where the spare tire was kept and sadly, I hate to admit this But I don't know how to change a tire :(   A sweet couple stopped by to help me..this sticks in my mind so much because they were so sweet.

Another incident was this past December.  We had a huge snowstorm...around 18 inches of snow.  I was shoveling out and this sweet gentleman stopped by and plowed my driveway.

2.  When did you help someone out of a jam and can you tell us about it?
I don't/can't remember helping someone out of a jam..  maybe helping watch a small child when something unexpectedly happened or taking food to someone that needed a small helping hand.  Last week an elderly man fell right in front of me.  I helped him up and didn't think a thing about it.
3.  What are your thoughts on being a good Samaritan?  Some states (like Florida) have even passed Good Samaritan laws so you don't get into trouble with the law for trying to help someone.

I know our world is crazy and scary sometimes, but I think it is a gut feeling one has if it is and emergency and you can should. 
4.  Thursday is National Pi Day.  It's a fun play on the date 3.14.  Will you have some pie to celebrate?

 No pie to celebrate Pi Day!

5.  Did you know that Pi is the most studied number in mathematics?  Are you good with numbers?

I would say, I am average with numbers.
6.  Tell us something random about your week.

I don't want to brag, but the sun has been shining since Sunday!!!   We have had our fair share of rain this year.

Have a Blessed Day and Enjoy Life!


  1. I have no doubt you are more than ready for some sunshine. We in the deep south are expecting storms and more rain today. We have forgotten what sunny days look like. But, come summer months, we will be wishing for cool, rainy days again.

  2. I think it should be automatic to help when we can. Enjoy that sunshine!!

  3. I am a wee bit jealous of your sunshine..... its been rainy and gray out here... send some sunshine my way please! Have a great Wednesday!

  4. It has been raining a lot here and was today and yesterday too. It has finally stopped and I think it is going to be sunny for a few days.
    I agree with you. We should help out when we can as opportunities are presented to us. Loved your answers! Happy Wednesday!

  5. I know you are enjoying the sun!! I have enjoyed reading everyone's Samaritan stories today! People are so good! Thanks for joining the Medley!!

  6. Oh I hear you on the rain. We've had two sunny days but it's back to cloudy today. So ready for spring! I think of you often and hope you're doing well.
