The Kindness Of Strangers
--by mummymunt, posted Jun 2, 2015
The kids and I ended up trapped in our car in rapidly rising flood waters. The engine had stalled and wouldn't start again, the kids were terrified and I didn't know what to do.
Then a man in a 4WD pulled up beside us and offered to tow us out of the water. Once he got us to higher ground he asked where we lived, which was about 2km down the road, so he towed us all the way back to our street before going off to look for more people in trouble.
I don't know this man and I'll probably never see him again, but the kids and I owe him a huge debt of gratitude that we'll never be able to repay.
Five local people died in this 'weather event', just a few streets away from here, so I'm in no doubt as to how dangerous our situation was.
Going through what we went through has only reinforced to me (and our kids) that we should always be ready and willing to help someone in need, whatever the circumstances.
Stay safe and be well, everyone xox
Lots of blessings and protection.
