We were all talking about courtesy the other day and I just wanted to share this with you all.
My husband is world famous for helping anyone who he may find with a flat tire or broke down.
Before his company built a new building a few years ago, the old parking lot would flood when it rained. So many times he came home soak and wet because he had ran out to get the cars of some of the women he works with. These ladies are older women and during the years we’ve known them, some have lost their husbands. My husband is part of a group of men who are always there to help these families in there time of need. One of his very dear friends past away several years ago, they collected money for the wife and children and still to this day, check on this lady to make sure she is doing ok. Another lady they worked with lost her husband, they still check on her. When she needed a roof repair, they were there.
What I’m trying to say is that, I guess my son has seen and helped his Dad many times, change a flat tire, or push someone to the side of the road when they were standed in the road, and has helped with these projects here and there.
My son, Trey is 16...just turned 16. He ran in after school at 2:45pm, changed into his work clothes and went straight to work with a sandwich in his hand. He only had to work 3 hours tonight so he got off work at 6pm.
When he pulled up, I thought something was wrong because he didn’t pull in the driveway, just parked on the side of the road with his lights still on. He came running in and ask his Dad if we had some motor oil because a man with a baby was broke down at a stop light just around the corner.
Me, being a total worry wart, thought, okay is this man using his baby to maybe rob someone that stopped to help or something like that. So, I ask my husband to go with him. Trey said no, I’ve got it. What can you say? My husband said, he’s a big boy and he can handle it.
Well, when he came back safe and sound and I was positive that no one was out to scam my baby or kidnap him. I was so very proud of him. It’s amazing, kids really do see and hear everything.
I know that he just stopped and got the man some oil, not really a big deal. It just goes to show that we have instilled in our children compassion and the desire to help a stranger.
These children are our future and what a glorious future we are going to have.
I just ask him how it made him feel to help someone in need. He said ,I could see on the mans face, relief. The man thanked him over and over and even offered to pay him. Trey said no, because he hoped if he ever needed help, someone would be there for him.
Trey explained that just being able to help someone else was very rewarding and it made him feel good.
Just felt the desire to share this with you ladies.
