We moved from our apartment to my mom’s apartment as soon as the lockdown started since my mom is too old and frail to look after herself.
The lady who cooked for us had been with us for 11 years. She was very sad that we were leaving because she had gotten very attached to our daughter. Her son and pregnant daughter-in-law also lost their jobs at the same time. I could see her distress, and I was wondering how I could help her. My husband’s business is temporarily closed due to the pandemic, but my business is not affected, I remembered my guru’s teachings and continued to pay her a significant part of her salary every month for the last four months, even though I don’t use her services any more.
I’m planning to continue doing it for another 6 to 8 months until either she or her son gets another job. Hopefully, God willing I will be able to do so.
When the universe gives you, don’t forget to give back.
