“Feed those babies and your self young lady.
I have a tow truck on the way and my wife will be here shortly to take y’all home.”
Sure enough she arrived followed by the tow truck.
Us and our truck were taken home.
The next morning the gentleman returned to my house with a mechanic who replaced my battery and alternator and fixed my window.
The elderly gentleman then left and did not return.
When I asked what I owed the mechanic and if I could make payments he smiled telling me the older man had paid for all of it.
He said that the only payment the older man wanted was for me to never give up and keep being an amazing mom.
I’ve never cried so hard in my life.
Things had been absolutely awful.
More so than I care to explain.
And without knowing us or our situation this kind man helped us in ways he will never know.
What he did revived my faith when I was falling apart.
But he wouldn’t even take a hug.
I’ll never be able to thank him.
But I certainly hope one day I can do what he did for me for someone else.
Isn’t that a great story?
I hope the 74 year-old man who helped her sees this.
I hope he knows what a difference he made for Tawny.
Someday I’m going to do something like that.
I can just feel it.
And it’s going to make me so happy.
Listen, mamas, we’ve had a LOT of bad news in our feeds lately. And with the upcoming election, negativity is EVERYWHERE. So, stories like these make a HUGE difference in my day! Here’s an older man who simply saw a need and filled it, expecting nothing in return except that Tawny do her VERY best by her children. Whether he was a Christian or not, I don’t know, but what I do know is that he showed the kind of love to a complete stranger that Jesus wants us to. He saw this stranded mama and her four kids and loved them as his NEIGHBOR, simply because they were humans in need.
I’m SO inspired and moved to tears by his kindness. Be on the lookout for how you can show love to others in need today, my friends! And if this inspired you, too, please share it on Facebook and put some good news in someone else’s feed!
