There once lived an old lady, 60. She had a flat tyre, in the middle of nowhere, she was old and frail, there was no way she could change a car tyre, she tried to make a phone call but there was no network coverage. So she just bent down to see what she could do. Just then, a wretched looking man was passing along the same road. The woman got scared considering what the man looked like, she feared the worst "what if he's a criminal? What will I do? Will he hurt me??" she thought. Her mind wandered.
"Do you need any help?" the wretched looking man asked, "you're cold, maybe you should go inside the car and wait while I change the tyres for you, it's warmer inside your car" She was frozen, she felt ashamed of herself for thinking the worst of such a good man. "Thank you" she managed to muster. "My name is Bryan Anderson by the way" the man smiled as he gestured a handshake towards her. She smiled back and said thank you and entered into her car.
Bryan Anderson, after getting himself very dirty successfully changed the flat tyre to the delight of the old lady. "I'm from downtown, I was journeying back home and then this happened but God bless you, tell me, how can I repay you? I'm ready to pay you any amount." she said as she alighted from her car and he tightened the last bolt. "You don't owe me anything ma'am, I just helped someone in need, if you really wanna pay me, help anyone in need and let the cycle continue" he smiled cheerfully, she could not thank him enough, "God bless you. May all your endings be successful, thanks very much". She entered again into her car, while Bryan Anderson waved at her "and think of me while helping someone else" he said cheerfully as she drove off.
It had been a cold and
depressing day, but he felt good as he headed for home, disappearing into the twilight.
A few miles down the road the lady saw a small cafe. She went in to grab a bite to eat, and take the chill off before she proceeding on the rest of her journey.
It wasn't your average restaurant, it was alot below standard. The whole scene was unfamiliar to her.
The waitress came over and brought a clean towel to wipe her wet hair. She had a sweet smile, one that even being on her feet for the whole day couldn’t remove.
The lady noticed the waitress was nearly eight months pregnant, but she never let that change her cheerful attitude. The old lady wondered how someone who had so little could be so giving to a stranger, Then she remembered Bryan Anderson.
After she finished her meal, she paid with a hundred dollar bill. The waitress quickly went to get change for her, but the old lady had slipped away. She was gone by the time the waitress got back. The waitress wondered where the lady could be. Then she noticed something written on the napkin.
She almost wept when she read what the lady wrote: “You don’t owe me anything. Somebody once helped me out, If you really want to pay me back, here is what you do: Do not let this chain of love end with you. Under the napkin were four more $100 bills. She was so happy, it was like her prayers had been answered.
That night when she got home from work and climbed into bed, she
was thinking about the money and what the lady had written. How could the lady have known that she and her husband needed it? With the baby due anytime soon, it would have been hard for them. "She's God sent the waitress thought".
She knew how worried her husband was, and as he lay sleeping next to her, she gave him a soft kiss and whispered soft and low, “Everything’s going to be all right. I love you, my dear husband, Bryan Anderson".
The moral of the story is help whoever is in need, you just never know who would help you.
Till next time,, Keep dreaming!!
