Act of kindness
Tuesday, January 15, 2019
I was out front talking to a friend who had come over to borrow a snake to take care of her sewer with. While outside a guy walked up and asked if my friend could drive him 30 miles to Russellville. She said sorry I don't pick up Hitch hikers.
I called my 18 year old son that was playing with my therapy dog out back. Robert came running. He asked if something is wrong. I told the guy that if I had the money I would take you to Russellville. I said people have helped us out when our luck was down.
My friend told me that she had a bad feeling about this. My son said that he would be right back. I told my friend that I would talk to her later and I hope the snake works for you.
My son came back out of the house with money and a cell phone. He told the guy where are you from. He said Pasadena TX. I told him you have walked from Texas to Arkansas. He said yes. I said will you are not walking anymore. It's going to be freezing tonight getting down to single digits. My son called a taxi and paid for the guy to get to Russellville. Robert asked the guy how long he was going to be in Russellville. He said two years. Robert said go by waffle House and talk to the manager. Tell him I sent you. He is needing help.
I hope he made it ok.
I hope all that read this has an awesome day.
