Blessings on the roadside
I went out on my brand new scooter to the Safeway and WalMart on Kenaston Boulevard. I was halfway home when my scooter died. About that time, it started to rain.
A couple in a van stopped and asked if I was in difficulty, to which I replied that I was. They used their cell phone to call the scooter company and were told that a truck would be sent out shortly. The couple, Linda and her husband (I have forgotten his name) stayed with me until the truck got there about 20 minutes later.
After taking my scooter apart, the guys in the truck found the batteries were almost dead and they would have to take it in to the shop and give it a good going over.
Due to my limited mobility, I was unable to get into the couple’s van, so Linda’s husband took the van home and returned with a car.
I told them they could leave, but they insisted they would see me safely to my home.
This couple has renewed my faith in human kindness, and I will pay forward their kindness as soon as I can.
They were truly a blessing to me. God bless them both.
