It's adage popping time --sounds like a song. "No good deed ever goes unpunished." and "What goes around comes around." Both may be true, but I still subscribe to what Jesus taught when he said “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’" I can assure you that you will be kicked, punched, cheated, lied to, stolen from, and treated like garbage at some time. Having your mistakes remembered is the least of your worries. But it will all make you a better person if you will allow it to and not let it ruin you. I'm a 67 year-old happy man, married fifty years, with a lot of dents, scars, and deformities. :) P.S. I do remember being thanked a few times.
