Bless­ings on the road­side

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

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.
