I suspect the weather had changed suddenly for them. I had an umbrell ain my car, pulled infront of them,opened the umbrella and handed it over to them. The man on the chair was in tears. Thank you, thank you so much. I left in tears. Not because i surprised myself, but because there had been hundreds of motorists passing by him. Thank god i saw him
Thank you all for sharing your wonderful stories. It sure lifts up a soul :)
We stopped and helped the woman from the ground. She was walking to the store for ice, milk, etc. As her house had lost electricity. We drove her back to her house, about 3/4 miles away. We dropped her off and went on our way to the diner.
The woman remained on my mind throughout my meal. I excused myself a few minutes early and walked to the 7/11 a few stores down. I purchased a bag of ice, quart of milk, and a loaf of bread. We got back to lenny & lois's. I said goodbye and drove back to the woman's house.
She almost cried when i knocked on her door, and gave her my purchases. She offered to pay but, i refused i asked her to pay it forward. Turns out she knew a friend of our family. I made a friend that day and felt so good the rest of the day.
Seems all three of you were blessed that day!
