2 Instead of 1

Today, I was out doing a driving favor for my sister. While waiting in the car at the grocery store for my sister, a man knocked on my window and asked if I could give him a jump start as his VW wouldn't start. After moving my car closer so he could use the jumper cables, his car started. As I was talking with him, he told me he had a 5 month old in the back car seat who needed to get home to eat. He also told me he was a widower whose wife died during child birth. I gave him a big hug and told him I would pray for him and to hang tough. He had tears and a smile on his face as he drove off. You just never know when you will be called upon to perform a kind deed. That's life!

I omitted that I was annoyed at the time I was asked to use my battery and further annoyed when asked to move the car closer. It was a very hot day and I did not realize there was a 5 month old infant in the back seat car seat. Boy oh boy - I was glad the guy didn't know how I really felt - Thank goodness or I would have had to eat a lot of humble pie. No more jumping to conclusions.
