Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time there was a single mom with a big heart.  She wanted nothing more than to help people, though she had very little to give.  So she did the best with what she had, and opened up her home to a man and his children when they were in need.  Since she had nothing to give, she expected him to be fair and split expenses as any grateful man would do.  But as time went on, he got more and more distant, and never carried his weight in any way.  The single mom grew nervous and irritable about the bills.  And so one day, while the mom was away for the afternoon with her children, the man packed up all of his things and walked away, never to be seen again.  This left the mom in a very desperate situation, with hundreds of dollars of debt, missing items that had been frequently used around the house, and utility companies threatening disconnection.  But that won’t be the end.  This single mom is strong and knows how to pull the ends together just close enough to get by.
Moral of the story: No good deed goes unpunished.  What a wonderful world we live in, that when someone is about to be homeless and you lend a helping hand, they pull you down to try and pull themselves up.
