Kindness Of An Stranger
--by franfaraz, posted Oct 7, 2020
I told him I can't believe it and he said, oh things happen and I said, that's not what I mean. I believe life happens, but I can't believe he stopped by and helped me before AAA did. He laughed. I thanked him and he left. And in reality, I do think things happen and I don't get upset. I also think that the universe bends toward goodness and unconsciously does think that kindness will show up. But here is the nugget, before laddership (an educational program I'm participating in), I would have thought of them as two separate things. After my reflections for the past 3 weeks, I think these are all continuing things. The event and generosity followed are one continuous transaction. As we said goodbye, I promised him to pay it forward. I saw in my mirror that the van just followed me, making sure I was ok. At the light, I got a chance to see the entire family in the van. A beautiful young wife with gorgeous children in the back. They all gave me a big smile and waved at me. The children were wishing me luck! They were so cute. I thought about what a role model for those young children to learn about service and compassion. And I thought how lucky I was to be the recipient of such generosity in a hot dry southern CA afternoon.
Love you all,
Thank god he always does highest good to us.
