“Can I tell you about something that happened to Kathy tonight when she was heading home from work? (My wife said to me a couple of minutes ago.)
(Kathy is our second oldest.)
“Kathy was following behind a car whose tire started coming apart on her way home from work tonight. She (Kathy) saw it was a young girl so she pulled over to see if she could help…It was a college student from South Korea who was heading to Dubuque, for a music rehearsal. The student didn’t have any family in the United States, and didn’t know who to call about the car. Kathy told her she would stay with her, until she got her car back on the road.
Kathy called WYZ towing, talked with Steve, who came right out. Kathy asked Steve how much it was going to cost because she wanted to pay for it. When Steve heard she was going to pay, he cut the bill in half. Thirty minutes later, the student was back on the road. There were even a few tears shed. The student was beside herself, could not understand why this complete stranger wanted to pay for the roadside assistance.”
Now that story just warms my heart tonight!
This is not the first random act of kindness I’ve heard Kathy doing. She does this sort of thing on a regular basis.
Have you ever been touched with the random kindness of a stranger? If so, could you tell me about it?
