I shared this 5 years ago on Facebook….
One day about 8 or 9 years ago I did something that I feel most any person would do:
A lady came into Movie Gallery to get a movie leaving her van running. Nothing out of the ordinary until I saw the van move out of the corner of my eye. Looking outside I saw a young girl in the driver seat crying. I jumped the counter, ran outside, caught up with the van, jumped in, slammed on the brakes right before the van went into the street. I have never forgotten that day.
Apparently neither has the little girl, who is now a teen. She saw me today in the mall, came into GameStop and said thank you.
Random acts are not forgotten…wow
I share this today, not as a look at Stu but as a reminder. A reminder that God places us in places at just right time to help others. It doesn’t have to be a “life saving” situation as this one could have been. It could simply be your smile to that one person. It could be a simple thank you to your waitress or waiter who has busted their butt all day with no appreciation from anyone for days.
And IF we do not think that a simple thank you is helping someone then we, as people, are worse off than I thought.
